Blue Jay from Fred, She Said. These Jay's come on branches for all the seasons but I wanted to use the one with snow for my first
Christmas card of the year~I know Yikes!
The unique thing about the shakers is that they are very low profile and have a strong adhesive around the edge. That makes them perfect for cards! I piled the material on top of the image and then pressed down the edge of the pouch. Success! No Leaks! I covered the flared edge with a heavy lace, attached a cardstock sticker and have my card! It was fun to create this-had been a very long since I had done one so I put a little too much iridescent snow and multi-colored blue beads in the pouch but a little extra bling bling shouldn't hurt, right? Thanks for looking-hopefully this will inspire me to get a move on my Christmas cards!
Also received the news that I will start my second term on this great Fred, She Said Team and I couldn't be happier~Tracey (aka Fred) creates wonderful digis for us to color as well as gives us the options for her pre-colored images. Boy, has that saved me when I needed a card fast. So keep an eye on my blog for new images and hopefully inspiring ideas! Carolyn
