Close To My Heart Christmas Shaker Cards - October Special

Hello friends!  I am excited to share with you today three CTMH specials for October.  The first one is a card kit with everything included to create 12 awesome 5 x 7 Christmas Shaker cards; including the assorted sequins packet which also includes stars.  I have created two so far; so you can see what they look like.  

I just love this card kit.  It is so bright and cheerful; which is how Christmas should be.  I love that everything is included and it really helps you understand how the shaker card comes together.  I was having issues trying to figure out how to make them from scratch.  I couldn't find dies that would cut out the right size holes, etc.  Now with the new CTMH Thin cut Shaker Kit and Confetti set; I can make Shaker cards to my hearts content.  LOL!   This is what I used on the inside of the cards.

Includes 12 card bases with envelopes, stickers, die cuts, acetate windows, sequins and a stamp set of sentiments and Christmas stamps as well.

Christmas Shaker Card 1

As you probably already know this about me; I love bright bold colors; so I had to use our new CTMH Oh What Fun Paper Pack for the inside of my cards; but you can use whatever your heart desires for the inside of these cards; which are white.
