First Christmas Card of the Year!

I love making Christmas cards and the great thing is you can make them all year round and be nice an organised when December comes!
Today's card is a very sparkly shaker card - take a look

The shaker is made from nesting star dies cut on the Big Shot and filled with glitter and micro beads. Glitter paper has been used for the round panel and then my sentiment has been heat embossed onto a strip of navy card stock.

I shall be entering this card into two challenges:

It's a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK but unfortunately I am working - all weekend and Monday - insert sad face here! I am hoping though to get in a little crafting tomorrow afternoon so I hope you will join me then and I do hope that you all have a great weekend - see you soon x


  1. Simply stunning! To fill a shaker with micro beads is a wonderful idea - most of the other possible fillings often get stuck in the window.

  2. I love all of the pretty sparkle on this card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  3. Really pretty! I'm sure this is even more spectacular in person! So glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  4. I love your sparkly star shaker and your simple layout. The sentiment on the navy is sweet.
    Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.

  5. Very pretty card Jacqueline! I love all the sparkle :-) Thanks for joining us at CCT, April x
