I’m participating in a fun 12 Days of Christmas blog challenge with my stamping friend Theresa to show off all the Christmas awesomeness in the soon retiring June-December 2021 Mini Catalog and 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.
It’s Day 4 of my 12 Days of Christmas and I have a pair of fun Borderless Shaker Card with the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP. I instantly fell in love with how easy to create these shaker cards are because I struggle with creating the more traditional versions. I first saw this type of shaker card on a Patty Bennett Facebook Live. Patty added a piece of Window Sheet in the Clear Medium Envelope to create her shaker card. For the shaker cards I created here I used a piece of Vellum cardstock instead and was happy with the results. You can watch my Facebook Live replay of my version of Patty’s Borderless Shaker Cards on my Facebook page here or on my YouTube channel below.
Please watch the Facebook Live Video replay (starting at 16:35 min.) to see how to make the card base. Attach the Clear Medium Envelope with the Vellum cs insert & sequins with the tab side as the front (be sure to use transparent tape to tape close the envelope sealing in the sequins), remove the strip over the self-adhesive and fold the clear envelope flap over the card base that is held upright in an L shape. Add Tear & Tape to the inside over the clear envelope flap and then gently flip the envelope over and add more Tear & Tape to the top edge of the card base to secure that side of the clear envelope then gently flip back and apply your favorite adhesive – I used glue – to seal both sides of the card base together over the clear envelope flap – creating the back of the card base and the clear envelope is now the card front.
Create your front panel with a Basic White cs stitched scalloped rectangle die cut with the Scalloped Contours dies. Stamp the sentiment from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set in Real Red ink on the bottom right corner stitched scalloped rectangle. Fussy cut cookies & candy from the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP with paper snips and then add them to stitched scalloped rectangle with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the built panel to the card front.
Add a Gingerbread & Peppermint panel to the inside of the card. Add a large Basic White cs stitched scalloped rectangle to the inside. Stamp the sentiment and add fussy cut Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP cookie & candy to the inside stitched scalloped rectangle to write your message.
I made this card the same way as the other card except stamped the sentiment in the top left corner in Old Olive ink and adding the fussy cut Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP cookies & candy to the bottom right corner.
For this card I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink and add the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP cookies & candy to the left bottom corner of the stitched scalloped rectangle.
