Sparkly and Whimsical Flat Shaker Christmas Card Tutorial | Christmas in July series

Thank you for joining me for this Sparkly and Whimsical Flat Shaker Christmas Card Tutorial. Let's jump right in.

I always have some A2 card bases made and on hand to make crafting easier, For my card panel I used a piece of watercolour cardstock and sprayed three Distress Ink sprays on it in Salvage Patina Oxide, Merry Mint Mica Spray and Winterberry Mica Spray. I worked between the colours until I was happy with the background. I flicked on some water for added texture as well.

Next, I created the shaker pocket with some leftover packaging and 1/4 inch double-sided tape, filled it with Rock candy glitter and Mica flakes, and sealed the top. For some added interest I cut out five snowflakes from silver glitter cardstock and added them to the design. I silver heat embossed my sentiment and fussy cut it out. I adhered everything with my liquid glue and added a few gems on top of the snowflakes for added shimmer and shine. I am pretty happy with how this card came together.
