Tree Shakers

Saturday, December 13, 2014

With all of the Christmas cards I've made over the last year, you'd think I would have made enough!
Well, not so.  I've gotten all of the cards I made so far in the mail and their way to family and friends, but needed a few more to finish off my list.   Luckily for me, I have this new tree die from Simon Says Stamp that I haven't had a chance to use yet.
I made two shaker cards using this die.  One more traditional colors {Wplus9 Lake House and Cupid's Bow} and one in pinks and greys {WPlus9 Ballet Slippers and Dove Grey}.
 The trees are decorated with stars and a banner also from SSS.  Oh and the stitched rectangle dies...they're from SSS too!
 I filled the shakers with more stars and some snow glitter from Martha Stewart that I picked up years ago at Michael's.
These came together really quickly.  I think I made them both in about a half hour.  The sentiment on the banner and also another on the inside of the cards is from the Merry and Bright Stamp Set from WPlus9.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a great weekend.
