Sparkle All The Way! Christmas Shaker Cards!


Hello crafty friends!

I have some super fun and super SPARKLY cards to share today! I just wish my camera was able to catch all that sparkle...SO much prettier and shimmery in person! 

For my Christmas cards this year, I decided to try my hand at shakers again. I haven't done shaker cards in years...I forgot just how fun these are to make!

I made 6 cards in total, in 6 different colors. Some in traditional and non-traditional Christmas colors. The best part...for me...no coloring was involved to create my cards! And since there are 6 cards...this will be a bit of a long post. lol


I used some super sparkly glitter cardstock from The Paper Studio for my card bases and to complete the finished look on the inside as well. I just LOVE TPS paper packs!

I created them in blue, green, purple....


... pink, gold and red.


For my cards today, I used my NEW Christmas sentiment set called, Sparkle All The Way (Explosion Version) available in my shop HERE! I also have a FREEBIE that matches this set that you can find in my previous post HERE!

I changed the colors of my digital sentiments to coordinate with the glitter cardstocks. After I printed them out, I stamped my Versamark Watermark ink pad over the entire printed images, I then added some SUPER sparkly Kaleidoscope embossing powder over them and then heat set them. So not only is my cardstock super sparkly, but so are the sentiments! I LOVE all the texture this created as well!

I'll share some close ups of them individually...

I think the gold one is my favorite!

I have to say if I were to do these over again, I think I would omit adding the extra stars to the tops and just leave it at the sentiment on the tops. But, I'm still really happy with how these came out and I'm all for anything with sparkle and anything easy...when it comes to making multiple Christmas cards!
