I'm sharing the 2nd of 3 inspiration projects I've created for the hop, today. (You can check out my first project, Here.)

I knew I wanted to use the too cute for words, Santa Wink cling stamp set again, but I really wanted to try to turn one of the cards from this Christmas Windowrama Photo Frame Card Kit into a shaker card!

I started by stamping Santa on a piece of alcohol marker friendly white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, before coloring him, once again, with my Nuvo Creative Pens. I fussy cut him out with sharp scissors, tracing the edge of the cut image with a black, water based brush marker to clean up any areas where my cutting wasn't perfect. Then I punched the center circle out of one of the Photo Frame cards. I applied adhesive runner to the back of the circle before lining up the front and back panels of the card so I could perfectly place the circle on the back panel. I decided I wanted the green polka dots on the outside of the card, so I placed the circle on the white reverse side. Next, I adhered Santa to the inside edge of the window aperture.

I cut two 4x4 pieces of clear acetate, adhering one to the inside of the window card, behind Santa, with double sided tape. Then I added 2mm foam tape around the opening of the aperture. I added a pinch of Boughs Of Holly Sparkle Blends to the center of the window, before peeling off the adhesive backing paper and adhering the other panel of clear acetate. Next I selected the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from the clear stamp set, included with the Christmas Windowrama Photo Frame Card Kit, stamping it at an angle on the background circle, so it would show through the shaker window. Finally, I assembled the Photo Frame card, following the instructions in the package, with double sided tape.


As an added Bonus, our exclusive retailer,
