FFC25 - Red and White Shaker


Time for another Festive Friday Challenge!


Just like the last challenge, I reached for some acetate, this time to make a shaker card. Laura makes it look so easy, but of course I tried it from memory rather than watching the video again, and missed the order of a couple of crucial steps. Oh well, in the end I got there!

I focused on the shiny red of the ornaments, the dull metal of the stand and added silver and gold sequins for some fun!

Now it's your turn - don't forget the deadline is Feburary 26th! We can't wait to see what you come up with.

How I wish that I could see through your eyes for even just a day!!! The inspiration that you took from the photo and put to paper is amazing! The red foil paper is so festive & the color of the snowflake is perfect with the darker gold/brass colored sequins!
