Santa is shaking it!

Happy Wednesday!

Well its red hot here in the Pilbara area of Western Australia, dont think we had spring! feels like summer! So of course I made a Christmas card, yup in the red hot heat! Crazy when you think Im English lol!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Midweek Magnolias- Christmas
Magnolia-Licious - Use craft paper
Holly Jolly Christmas- Santa Claus
Noor! Design UK- Shaped cards

For my shaker card I used one of my all time fave Edwin stamps 'Little Santa' from last years Christmas Magnolia release. Boy did this little guy get some use last year, think he was glad when New Year came!!! I coloured Edwin with Distress inks.

The papers are from Riddersholm Design and the collection is 'Our Country Christmas'- Love the vintage feel that this collection has and the rich reds.  The red lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the flowers.  The cream coloured lace is from Live and Love Crafts.

Now for the dies- The Santa is from the Magnolia doohickey club last year and yup like 'Little Santa' got a lot of use! The rest of the dies are from Noor! - I love the words!!! I was so excited when these arrived!!! And the snowflakes!!! wow wow wow!!!

The shape of the card is cut from a Go Kreate die.  The band round the image of Edwin is from an 'Impression Obsession' die.

The kraft paper features a lot in this card- I used it for the die cut round the image, the snowflakes att the top and the side, Santa's hat, and for the words. I also carried it over to the inside. On all of these parts I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder which is spotty and is one of my fave folders, esp for Christmas. The only part of the kraft paper that was not embossed was Santa's beard.

The shaker material is made up of different shades of yellow/gold beads and clear beads. I love the sound of these, kinda reminds me of the bells you here when Santa and his sleigh is riding over!

To finish off the card I added some red and gold rhinestones to add some extra bling.

Hope you have a lovely day.
