Let's get spotty!

Newest challenge theme at Creative Craft Cottage is: Let's Get Spotty! There are 2 sponsors this week:  The East Wind and My Stitch Back in Twine. Sorry this post is a little late, but have been busy planning a possible move! (Will keep you up to date when I know more.)


I chose to use this digital stamp from The East Wind called Aurora Reindeer.  Fell in love with this darling image and it just screamed shaker card to me!

This image is colored using Prismacolor Pencils and a Prismacolor Colorless Blender Marker. The quote on the front says: "You don't need to promise me the moon and the stars..."

Inside the card: "Just promise me you will stand under them with me forever."

I created the shaker element using 2 pieces of clear acetate and Scotch foam tape. I added some adorable white stars and gold sequins I found at a local craft store. The image is adhered to the inside of the card and can be viewed through the shaker window.

Here is a view of the entire inside of the card. I used acetate circles larger than the window to create this shaker element and covered both sides with the polka dot paper to hide any glue spots. :)

I hope you enjoyed my first Christmas card of the 2015 season! (Don't worry, no more Christmas cards until after Halloween is over. I have to enjoy my favorite season of the year now... Fall!!)
