Merry Christmas shaker card

Hello everyone,

I'm here with a shaker card today.  I didn't have much luck with my last shaker card I made (which was also my first one) but I love the little penguins from Mama Elephant that I just couldn't resist trying again.

I used the Arctic Penguins stamp set and I coloured the little penguin with C1 and 0 and used BG70 for the ice.  I used with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the images. I do have the dies but for this one I wanted to fussy cut the images.  I am one of those who doesn't mind fussy cutting as long as I don't have to do too much of it!  :)

I also use the new Mama Elephant Peek A Frame dies and I used the window die to make the shaker.  I ran the it through my Cuttle Bug and then turned the die around and ran it through again so that it would cut both sides as one side only scores the paper.

I used Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear 6mm sequins along with some Simon Says Stamp itty bitty 2mm sequins that came in a card kit and unfortunately can no longer remember which one.  I used the  rectangle die from the Femme Frames die set to cut out the vellum and used an A2 sized card base to put everything one.

I used the Merry Christmas die from Simon Says Stamp from last year's Christmas release and cut that out of shimmer paper I bought at Michaels.  I used Sea Glass SSS ink to stamp out the snow which is from the Arctic Penguins set.

Thanks for stopping by!
