Peppermint Shaker

Happy Monday Scrapping Cottage Friends!

Kris here to share a tutorial with you on this cute shaker card featuring some dies from the Christmas Release #2 and more! 

I am a Guest Designer this month for the Color Challenge  at SplitcoastStampers and the colors this week are Real Red, Old Olive and Poppy Parade (CC925).  The dessert option is to use a 4th color.  I added in some Cinnamon Spice for the gingerbread girl. 


Red Cardstock =  Cut a 5-1/2" x 11" - score at 5-1/2"

Gold Cardstock  = Cut a 5-3/16" square
Die cut the bow from the Halloween Wreath 
Die cut the Joy from the Peace & Joy Wreath

White Cardstock = Cut a 5" square
Die cut largest die from the Pierced Wide Circle Frame set 

Crumb Cake (or Kraft) Cardstock =

Peppermint Patterned Paper = 4-3/8" square
Acetate or Window Sheet = 4-3/8" square
Candy Cane Striped Paper = 4-3/4" square

• Fold and burnish red card base
• Attach gold square in center of card front
• Attach white square "
• Attach peppermint square "

• Using the 3rd largest die from the Pierced Circle Set, cut a circle from the center of your 4-3/4" square patterned paper (Candy cane striped paper).

• Add glue close to the circle opening of that patterned paper, and attach the white circle frame.

• Attach acetate/window sheet to the back of that paper.

• On the back side of your striped paper, add foam strips around the circle opening and around the straight edges, then remove the backing (from the foam strips).

• Add shaker elements to the center of your card front.  I used some of the cookies from the Cookies & Cocoa die, as well as some white and red sequins.

• Optional - use a used dryer sheet on front and back of your window sheet to reduce static and prevent sequins from "sticking" to it!  This really does work!!  :) 

• Carefully center your window layer on top of your card front so that there's equal amount of white border and press down.

• Ink blend Rusty Hinge Distress Ink to your ginger girl.

• Color her bow red, scarf and earmuffs Olive green, and buttons dark brown.  Add white gel pen polka-dots to the scarf and highlights to the bow and buttons.

• Glue "Joy" to the center of your shaker.

• Attach Ginger girl and cup of cocoa with foam dots.

Thanks so much for looking today!  
I hope you are inspired to create something fabby with your favorite CottageCutz dies!
