"Noel" A new Christmas card, a Shaker card

Hello All!  Today's card is a shaker card, which is something I am fairly new at.  I have only made one before.  I started off with my distress ink blended background.  I splattered the water reactive ink with a water/ perfect pearls mixture.

I stamped my image with a Tim Holtz set from a couple of years ago, using Versafine Black Onyx ink in my home-made stamp positioner so that I could repeat stamp a few times to get a good, solid and dark impression.

I used my new Tim Holtz die again, along with an Elizabeth Crafts die and a Tim Holtz punch.  I knew this die would be versatile!  I die cut the globe from fun foam as well which I sandwiched between the layers to give dimension and create the space for my shaker elements.  I used some mylar to cover the front of my shaker element and under the top two layers.

Once my card was assembled, I embellished it with the globe "stand", the Noel sentiment, a few pine boughs punched out of gold card and a purchased snowflake embellishment (from Michaels)

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and checking out my latest Christmas card.  I hope you enjoyed it!
Have an amazing day everyone!


  1. Oh, well I just love your shaker card Kimberly!! It is beautiful and I love that you used fun foam for the dimension in your card. hugs, patty

    1. Thank you , Patty! I'm not really all that experienced with shaker cards, but fun foam seems like a good way to do it, it keeps everything flat and even.

  2. Gorgeous card, Kimberley - and you'd never know you're a newbie at this technique. Lovely, lovely, lovely!

    1. Thank you, Win! I found it a little tricky to be honest, but I'll be making more and getting some practice. This is the perfect die set for a shaker card
