Shaker Card

Can you believe this is my very first shaker card? I have made it for my cousin's children and it was so much fun to make. It's also for the challenge at Simply Magnolia this week which is Christmas and it is sponsored by Jacobi 

I have used an older Magnolia Santa stamp with the new Spruce die inside the shaker box and added a few more pressies on the outside. Snow on the tree, Santa's hat and cuff have had some sparkly fluff added and the silver glitter for shaking is from Martha Stewart. Merry Christmas stamp is from Stamp It.Siler sequin ribbon border I found while looking through my old Christmas stash!
