Merry & Bright Faker Shaker

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #6!   Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps!  This week, it’s most of my friends from the  Copic team!  How fun is that?

I chose to make a faker shaker card because I love the look, but I don’t have the patience! I started with JustRite’s Groovy Snowman set and the Christmas Nested Sentiments. After the pieces were all colored, I added some white Sparkly Fluff to my snowgirl. I cut circles (both scalloped and plain) with my Nestabilities and an opening in the brown layer to make the frame. I cut a second scalloped circle from the same scalloped circle die and stacked it between the suede brown scalloped layer and the colored layer. The result is a ‘glass’ window with a shaker card effect.

Please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous Christmas projects they have for you on the hop today! The fun starts at the JustRite Inspiration blog, followed by:
