I recently joined a small stamping group of fellow demonstrators and this month we have a challenge to make a shaker card.  So, I thought I would share my card with you.

I don't make many Shaker Cards because I've never been very happy with those I've attempted, but since I was challenged to do so, I had to try.

I used one of the patterns from the One Horse Open Sleigh designer series paper (DSP) for my background.   There are so many pretty designs that it was difficult to choose which one I wanted to use, but I thought the snowflakes and sequin "confetti" from my stash would be easy to see with this large Early Espresso Tree behind it.  The "window" into my shaker box was cut with the Countryside Corners Dies.

The dark woodgrain designer series paper is another pattern from the One Horse Open Sleigh DSP.

A die cut white tree and the Joyful sentiment, both from the Horse & Sleigh Bundle, highlight the window.  A little snippet of Glittered Organdy Ribbon, currently an ONLINE EXCLUSIVE, keeps the sparkle of the "confetti" going.

To trim the inside of the card I used a leftover piece of the DSP that I had trimmed off from the piece for the card front.  The narrow edge of Early Espresso cardstock draws your eye to that pretty leftover "scrap".

The sentiments are both from the Horse & Sleigh Stamp set, and I love it when Stampin' Up! gives us sentiments that pair together.

I used "confetti" I had in my stash for my "snow", but if you don't have any snow-appropriate "confetti, you could use the Loose Silver Sequins from the current catalog.  I've included it on the list before for information.
