I love all the rich deep colors paired with Gold Currency Cardstock for the win!
Die Cut all the Pieces
Using your favorite die cut machine, cut out the three layers of the plaid background. Kale for the base, Cougar 100 lb White Cardstock for the white layer and Gold for the last layer. I used the new Sizzix Layered Plaid Thinlit Die.
Cut the sentiment from Dark Red Cardstock plus a gold layer. Glue the sentiments together offset slightly to show the gold base. Coat the top red Noel with Nuvo Glaze and sprinkle with glitter. Set aside to dry.
Cut a few holly leaves and sparkle accent leaves using dark green and Opulent Opal Glitter cardstock.
Using a piece of packaging like the ones you get when you purchase stamps and dies, cut a single layer about 1/2 inch larger than the Kale green piece. Using a tape runner, add tape to the very edge of three sides of the Kale piece. Lay the Kale piece on top of the packaging and fold the sides over to form the shaker. You will need to cut the corners at an angle to get a flat pocket. I use red tape to close the pocket. Add a length to the top of the pocket. Fill with sequins of your choice. I used Gold to match the top plaid layer. Close the pocket. I like to run a bone folder over the edges to assure a good seal.
Assemble the Card
Glue the gold plaid piece to the white plaid piece and then glue the plaid to the top of the green shaker base. Attach to an A2 cardbase made with 110 lb Cougar White Cardstock. I always cut and score my card bases starting with 8.5 x 11 pieces of cardstock.
Arrange the leaved and word on top of the plaid shaker. Glue and let dry to complete the card!
I love all the sparkle and bling created by using layers and sequins!
