Holly Berry Shaker

Hello! Alison here. Today I have a card that features one of the newest Sparkle Blends, called Holly Berry. The new release from Doodles Paper Playground has Sparkle Blends for anyone's style for the upcoming holiday season.

For this card, I thought it would be fun to use a frame die as my shaker with an alcohol ink background. I chose the Holly Vine Frame die from Poppy Stamps, and i die cut it out of white cardstock 4 times to build my shaker. I chose an alcohol ink background I had made that uses the Gilded Alloy and I believe Cranberry alcohol ink from Ranger. I made it quite a while ago, so I'm not positive it's Cranberry.
You can see in the photo above how pretty the Holly Berry Sparkle Blend is. I love the gigantic holly leaves that are in there (I opted to cut them in half for this card), the glittery red sequins, and all the pretty confetti sequins too. The Sparkle Blend pops against the background. I added some pretty patterned paper behind the alcohol ink background, added a small sentiment, and I mounted it all on to a white card base.

This is such a pretty card, and it's quick to recreate. You can make several alcohol ink backgrounds at once, die cut plenty of frames in one sitting, and just put everything together assembly line style. But as simple as it is, I think that the varying layers have quite an impact. Have you seen the entire new release of Sparkle Blends yet? Head over to the Sparkle Blends Shop on Etsy to check them out. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
