Joyeux Noël – Merry Christmas


I know, three posts in a row, how crazy is that? 🙂 Well my mojo seems to have kicked back, and a little more time for myself makes it possible to enjoy crafting again…

Today’s card is a CASE from a card made by the very talented Yukari Yoshioka. You can see her stunning card here. I have kept pretty much the same design but I adapted a few things to make it a shaker card.

Shimmer and Shine - Joyeux Noël #StampinUp #Christmas #Trees #Silver #Red #ShakerCard

For the background, I wanted to have the same soft effect as in Yuki’s card, so I stamped the littlest snowflake in Versamark, then embossed it with White embossing powder on Smoky Slate cardstock. The background was then covered with vellum. I absolutely adore this effect, very winter-y 🙂

I draw the “hills” and hand-cut them, adding faux-stitching with a silver gel pen. The sentiment comes from the “Quelques lignes” stamp set and has received the same Versamark / silver embossing powder treatment as the trees. The trees were then punched with the Tree Punch. The little star was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and received a coat of Dazzling Details to give a bit of shine.

I added several foam adhesives to get different layers for the hills and the trees. I made a frame with a piece of acetate to close my shaker card. When I added the sequins, I remembered a trick given by the crafty goddess Jennifer McGuire in one of her amazing videos: to glue some sequins on the background, so that when the card stands up, there are a few sequins still visible… how clever is that?


I hope you like it 🙂 your comments are always welcome!
