Christmas Shaker Cards 2

The landscape cards featured in this post use one of my favourite Christmas frames taken from a Graphics Fairy image. I love the way the reindeer are pulling Santa across the sky at the top of the frame. The bottom right of the original image has an advertising slogan, and I usually cover this with a small sentiment or word.

"Patterned papers, chipboards & stamped sentiment!

This "Merry Christmas" stamp is from a Polkadoodles set and is my favourite Christmas sentiment at the moment. It has been used inside most of my Christmas cards this year and it colours beautifully with a soft green promarker.

"Patterned papers and cutouts collage"

Extra depth can be achieved by placing some of the images on the outside of the acetate. We all make mistakes. I forgot to put the sprinkles inside this one before sealing the edges. D'oh!


I don't know what it is about reindeer but I seem to be fixated with them at the moment. Such beautiful creatures.
