Wishing You Christmas Cheer!

And I'm back with ANOTHER Christmas project! For this one, I wanted to try a shaker card. I've seen them all over lately and I have yet to try it. 

It seems like it'd be something I could take on for the challenge over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons this month! it is!
I LOVE how it turned out! The card is a standard A2 sized card. To make the shaker window, I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Photo Frames 1 Cutting File. (I did change the size of the opening a little bit within Silhouette Studio to create the size I needed.) I added some clear acetate to the opening and popped it up on some foam tape.
Inside my window I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birch Tree Trunks Cutting File. I was a little hesitant at first, because for as small as I needed them (and the fact I hadn't used my Cameo in over 5 months) I didn't know if they would cut very well. Well, look how great the Cameo did! For the sentiment and snow flakes, I used the Pretty Cute Stamps Christmas Cheer stamp set. :)

This adorable little snowman is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Sweet Snowman Cutting File. I used Silhouette Studio to hide his face so I could add a little peachy face to him!
 I added some different colored sequins from Neat & Tangled and sealed it all up!

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

Good morning...and Merry Christmas! 

It seems like forever ago since I posted any type of project on my blog! But this past week, while on vacation, I actually had a chance to make something. :)
 For this card I used the SVG Cutting Files Bracket Label Card Base and created it at the standard A2 size. 
 And that adorable little Santa Claus? He's also from SVG Cutting files, from the Merry Merry file. I love his "vintage" type look! 

For my Sentiment, I used the Jaded Blossom Christmas Wishes stamp set. The banner is simply hand cut. To finish off the card I used some super cute enamel dots!
