Peaceful Pines Shaker Card


Ever have the crafting bug, but just don't know what to make? I was like that so I re-visited some Pinterest Pins for inspiration. I loved Narelle's take on Freshly Made Sketches challenge #209 - I haven't used the Peaceful Pines set for a Christmas card this year, so I went and dusted it off, here's my project:


This rustic sketched tree from Peaceful Pines is my favourite, I've used it alot, it creates a lovely effect when using multiple trees. I just adore the little snowflake stamp to create the background, it is so delicate. My colour theme is courtesy of Fancy Frost Sequins - why re-invent the wheel when Stampin Up! has given us such a wonderful colour combination! Whilst not traditional Christmas colours I just love the cool frosty feel with a pop of pink. 

My shaker window was cut with the largest of the Perfect Pines framelits, then I stamped the rustic tree image behind the shaker cut out and applied Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter, added foam strips and popped in Fancy Frost Sequins 



I used both the positive and negative images created when I cut my tree with the Perfect Pines framelits, and I blinged up the positive image too - never to much bling for Christmas!

I double cut "Merry" using the Christmas Greetings Thinlits and slightly offset, then did some masking with a stamp from Star of Light for "Christmas" 

 I also stamped the inside of the card
