Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
Today I bring you a set of two Christmas cards in which the focus is on shaker box elements. For both cards I used Maja Design latest collection, Happy Christmas 🙂
In the first card I used the top layer for a shaker box bauble to make a kind of diorama inside it, mounting particular layers of hand-cut elements. I then added a cluster made with die-cut poinsettia and wintery leaves and an embossed stamped sentiment:
For the second card I used the full shaker box that I filled with sequins and closed with a paper bottom, but as I used an additional layer with snowflakes forg the frame, the finished box was quite dimensional. So I cut out a circle in the card top layer and placed the shaker inside, to lower it a bit. Thus the shaker is still quite deep, but it doesn’t interfere with the card easily going into an envelope 🙂
For several years now I try to make dimensional holiday cards that still go into envelopes, and I’m really happy with the way these two turned out! I also love how beautiful the papers look, giving the cards this signature Maja vintage look 🙂
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Craft&You Design, Magnolia; stamps, chipboard: Agateria; sequins: my stash.
Do you you shaker boxes in your projects?
See you soon!
