Merry Christmas at Live & Love Crafts

Hello all you lovely people around the world. Well it's not long now til the jolly fella in red comes, shaking his belly like a bowlful of jelly ;0) Are you excited? What's more, are you organised & ready? I am soooooooo not ready or organised this year, though I'm still excited lol.

Okie dokie lets quit my babble & get on with my post, which as you all know Sandy has given us free reign......... & I'm afraid I have another christmas card.
Post is pic heavy so I will try keep chatter to a minimum....
I have made a shaker card, I havn't made one of these since my 1st year crafting.......so this is my 2nd shaker in 4 years. I lurve shaker cards & really should do them more often.

All the snowflakes have been fran-taged with Shabby White. I've also added the gorgeous frosted berries to the centre & of course some bells.

There is a doily under there somewhere, also Magnolia Fence just under the deer, the deer I also added gesso to & a rusty bell.

All of the flowers are of course from LLC. The tulle is the beautiful Glitter Tulle which really is so so pretty IRL.

Of course inside is decorated as well to compliment the front, all papers have been machine stitched & white gesso painted around the edges.

I've used my latest new Magnolia stamp & coloured her with re-inkers & distress ink markers. I added Stardust Stickles to her fur. The shaky bits are Diamond Dust & a wee bit of micro glass beads. I also added flat back string pearls around the edge. I also added diamond dust to the red flowers as well.
For the shape I used a XXL Go Kreate die. The tags at the top are Magnolia doo-hickey tags. The leaves are Magnolia Sprawling Fern dies.
This is for a member of my family, cant say who incase they are peeking ;0) I really hope they like it!


Well that's it from me, but if you are after any yummy vintage or shabby chic craftiness then pop on over to Live & Love Crafts, you really wont regret it.........

For the Noor design dies I've used then pop on over to Tracy's shop here.
Dies used are..........

Take care & enjoy your weekend, thanks so much for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxxx

Shaker cards, especially for Christmas are so fun to make, but this year, I unfortunately didn't get around to one. I made my last X-mas card on Christmas Eve, LOL. Very cute; you said you used which papers again? ;-)
