Today I have not a card but a Christmas shaker ornament to share with you.
The new theme for the month of December over at The Flower Challenge says
ANYTHING BUT A CARD !
Anything but a card ... hmm at first I could only think about a tag :). And I started to make one. But after I colored and cut the poinsettia cluster, a new idea popped in my mind. An ornament for our Christmas tree!!!
As I said, I white heat embossed the poinsettia cluster from Holiday Love Poinsettia set by The Ton, watercolored it in soft aqua color and cut it using coordinating die. I then prepared the round shaker part. I cut a circle frame using Double stitched circle dies by The Ton from a white cardstock. I cut two more frames from a white and light blue fun foam as well to make the border for the shaker body. The background panel was cut from a light blue cardstock. I blended Bright Emerald dye ink on it in ombre look and white heat embossed some snowflakes from Crystal Flurries set from The Ton on the panel. To fill the shaker I used some shaker mix which a lovely blog friend Jenny once sent to me. That was perfect with some snowlakes and aqua sequins!!!
After I finished assembling the shaker part I adhered the poinsettia cluster on it and tied the string and an aqua ribbon. And as we have the Christmas tree standing, here is one more picture of the ornament in action :)!
Thank you so much for looking! I hope I was able to inspire you.
