Joy to the World
by Michelle Bala


Hello there! Michelle here, with a cute shaker card! I used the Petite Leaf Frame Die, Joy Airy Script Die, and

Merry and Bright Mistletoe Stamp Set.


I started off by inking up a piece of smooth Bristol cardstock with bundled sage distress oxide ink. Die cut the frame. I die cut the frame two times 

for extra leaves. I added color to the leaves with Copic Markers in shades YG61, YG63, and YG67.  I die cut the Joy sentiment and added

some shimmer with Stickles glitter glue in red. Set aside to dry. Emboss and trim the type sentiment.


To assemble the card, turn the leaf frame upside down and adhere a piece of clear acetate as your shaker window. Than, 

apply foam tape along the perimeter of the frame ( both squares) and all the tiny leaves.  For the shaker sequins, I like to place them

on the card base in a small cluster than place the frame on top so I can center the frame. Lastly, add the sentiments. For a finishing touch

I added some bells and twine. 

Thanks for stopping by!
