It's Anita here !!! Have you started making your Christmas  cards ? The CottageCutz store has a wide range of Christmas and Fall theme dies and you can create simple and also heavy layered cards using these. You can check them out here:
Christmas 1, Christmas 2 and Fall Theme
Today I have a new card for you with Christmas theme but there is a twist in it. Its a shaker card and it's in non-traditional Christmas colour.
Do check it out here.

To make this card---

Cut out die cuts in white card stock from CottageCutz Stitched Circle die.
Cut out one from the largest die and this will form the base.
Stick together the largest and the smallest die with a 1/4 inch gap and cut out 6-7 circle frames.
Use the CottageCutz Snowman with lamp post to create a scene with a 3d effect. Layer two die cuts with 3D foam tape and distress the top one with scattered straw distress ink.

Adhere the frames in between each layer. I have used 4 frames . Add sequins and cover the top with OHP sheet cut to the same size as the circle. Put the final circle frame on top   and add another stitched frame. Place the whole thing on a brown Christmas Nested Ball Ornament. Add a string.

Apply distress ink Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge and Spiced marmalade on a craft mat, spray water and swipe a 7"/5" card stock to colour. Dry with a heat gun.

Cut two CottageCutz Snowflake doily and colour it with Evergreen Bough Distress ink. Apply clear adhesive and sprinkle Rangers Clear Rock Candy Glitter.

Create a circle label with CottageCutz Stitched circle die and add a sentiment.
Arrange all the elements as shown.

Matte on teal coloured card stock and finally adhere to a white card stock.
The finished card measures 7.5" by 5.5"

A challenge is up on the blog. the theme is Fall. We have an amazing collection of Autumn themed dies. So do share your entries. See you next week.
