September Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'


Well,  here we are... the September Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' begins today....the big day will be upon us all too quickly!
For this challenge I made a shaker card...not something I do very often, quite pleased as the sequins actually move when the card is shaken...and they don't fall out (won't mention the glitter...)
The scene inside the shaker was created with distress inks and some gorgeous fairy pine tree stamps from Lavinia. I piled some sequins and glitter on top and covered it with snow patterned acetate.The die cut sleigh and reindeer is adhered on top. I took the photo in bright sunshine which shows the lovely sparkle but the colours are a bit washed out,  much more 'twilight-y' IRL...still you can't have it all!
Thanks for visiting today...if you''re starting to panic about getting your Christmas cards made on time and are stuck for ideas...head on over to  Christmas at Sweet Stampin' for some wonderful inspiration from my teamies.
Have a great day
Chris
