Sweet Christmas shaker card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a fun shaker card. Shaker cards are really in demand right now, but this is my first try ever. Many use sequins and The Rubber Buggy has just started to carry some great choices HERE.

However, I haven't really rolled in to that trend either yet. I do own a couple, but for this card I thought I get good use of some really old glass beads from back in the days when I was trying to make some jewellry - as a teenager!!! I didn't get much done, so I have tons and tons of these tiny little beads in several colors, but I don't have the heart to throw them away. And what a good thing, because they went so well as shaker elements! A few really goes a long way here, but they really add some noise plus they are heavy enough to push the rest around.

I also filled my shaker pocket with some faux snow and as that stuff is airlight, the beads really makes it move. I also added some elements from the stamp set I used. I copic colored some peppermints and candy canes and added them to the mix. They are glue together, so they have a front and back, just in case they would turn over - however unlikely...
