Fab 'n' Funky ~ Christmas Creations
Hey there lovely crafty pals. I've been super busy with family stuff these past few days, but I have a couple of posts to share with you tonight, this first one is my DT post for Fab 'n' Funky. We have our monthly Christmas challenge this week and I'm sharing a sweet and quick shaker card that was made using a lovely Lili of the Valley topper. All I did was turn it into a shaker.
I used a fab CC Designs Christmas stamp set called Snowman Sentiments for the sentiment and stamped it directly on the base paper. I've used a lovely Maja Design paper for the base from their 'It's Christmas Time' paper collection. I added a Marianne Design Creatables diecut Christmas tree to finish the design and decided not to add snow, but to keep it green to tie in with the greens in the picture.
I used little green bugle beads in the shaker to emulate falling fir needles and wee iridescent star sequins for snowflakes. I tipped them to the side in the pic above, so the pic was more visible. It's such a cute one. I loved it so much, I bought the stamp too! So I'm going to have a play colouring that up. But for this quick and easy Christmas creation, the topper worked a treat.
I hope you'll come and join the fun with us this week at Fab 'n' Funky. We've been working hard all year to bring you regular Christmas challenges and to help you get up to speed for Christmas before the mad Christmas rush at the end. I so wish I'd made two or three each month! But I'm definitely ahead of where I would otherwise be. Do stop by the challenge to check out my teamies fabulous creations, they're a talented crew and you're sure to leave inspired. We'd love you to share your Christmas creation with us too. I'll be back in a few hours with my next crafty adventure, so watch this space. Hugs and happy Christmas crafting, Wends xoxo
