Hello, friends! Today’s card is a Christmas shaker card featuring the Candlewick dies available at Spellbinders! These dies are designed by Becca Feeken, and they are so intracate and lovely! Im using the Doily die to create a shaker window to fill with sequins and confetti.
When I first saw the die, I immediately thought of a snowflake. I wanted to create a wintery card to convey that feeling. I started by cutting my 12×12 paper down to size to create a 6×6 card base. Then, I cut a layering piece slightly smaller than the base to layer on top.
Over the smaller layering piece, I cut out the doily die. This die has the design itself, which will cut out a “window” and an outline die which will cut out the whole design from your paper. I just cut a window in my card panel, and then I cut another doily design to layer over that, just so the “snowflake” would pop off the page a bit.
Next, I grabbed a piece of blue cardstock and cut it to layer behind the snowflake panel. I then took some Nuvo Glacier Paste in the color Frostbite to spread over the blue cardstock panel. This created a tone on tone look, while also adding lots of shimmer.
I then added a piece of plastic behind the snowflake window, and also added foam adhesive on the backside. My foam adhesive was arranged all around the borders of the window, making sure not to leave any spaces open so that my shaker bits wouldn’t fall out.
I then added some confetti and sequins to my blue cardstock panel, and adhered my front window panel over that.
To finish my card, I added some alphabet die cuts from the Spellbinders steel rule alphabet die, and added a glimmered sentinment as well from the November Glimmer Kit. I then added some Nuvo drops all around the snowflake on the edges, and I love how that added a bit more subtle, translucent shine to this card!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you love this die from Spellbinders as much as I do! If you are interested in any of the items used, I have them linked below (affiliate links).
