Non Shaker

Hi there!

I have another card to share and you could be forgiven for thinking this is another shaker ... Actually it's a non shaker ... the sequins are all stuck down


I have completely lost count of all the Christmas cards I've made ... I've still some to show you but there have been some where I've actually made a dozen of the same design


I vowed I wouldn't do it this year ... make all my own cards ... The shop bought cards are pretty and inexpensive and the postage is a lot less than it is for my cards
Somehow I still ended up making tons


I'm bushed ... feeling very exhausted today and I still have the Thursday club disco to attend this evening ...

Ce la vie!

Have a lovely day/evening

You put me to shame, I have made no cards this year. I got some nice ones that support our local Abbey!

And though made by the tons, I love the Christmas card you sent to me, Ros! It is so very much appreciated.
Merry Christmas to you and yours and may 2015 start and stay happy and healthy.
Blessings,

Beautiful card Ros! Love the pretty shimmery shaker and fancy die cut sentiment!

Davi said...

LOVE this one Ros!! The really pretty die cut sure shows up in such a lovely way being all white :)

You're so talented--sending store bought cards would be a shame, Ros! However, the cost of postage is getting to be a real bummer & next year I'm going to have to go with flatter designs. Decided the cards through the year can have the bows & bumps since there aren't so many at a time. This is a beauty--fun die!

Lisette Baker said...

Oh how clever - the sequins behind the die cut is a brilliant idea and so effective. I rue the day I started making my own Christmas cards and thought this year might be the year I reverted to shop bought, but I just couldn't do it!! However, I did ensure that they were slim enough for the cheapest postage!!!

Gorgeous Ros! Very deceiving to the eye at first glance, I love that! I hear you about making your own cards and my list seems to get bigger every year! holiday hugs to you :)

Charlene said...

Fabulous Ros!! I love how you glued down the sequins!

Deepti said...

This is fabulous! I love the sequins peeking through the design :)

Manuela said...

pretty card Ros, take a little time to relax...

Sue Lelli said...

I LOVE your home made cards! They are always so lovely!

Darnell J Knauss said...

I love this faux shaker design you've created, Ros! I'm pinning this one as I have that text die and can't wait to CASE your genius idea to put the sequints behind it!!

Try and get some rest so your exhaustion doesn't turn into a cold or something. You need to save some energy for Christmas and New Year's!! I wish you a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year!! Hugs, Darnell

That is a pretty one Ros!
I had to tell you this dream I had last night, I dreamt that I went to Liverpool and met up with you, we were both so happy and hug each other so tight when we met, nice dream isn't it? I do hope that the dream will come dream someday soon! : )

Diane said...

Aha! A shaker in disguise..lol!! A very clever way to use this die cut..love it my friend, and I hear you about being exhausted...I am right there with you!! I am not sure if I am coming or going!!

Maria said...

A lovely nonshaker card! I never would have guessed if not told otherwise! It is so pretty with the sequins and all the silver. Love the die cut plate with sentiments, too! Have a great weekend!:-)

Tracy said...

I know what you mean. I made all but one of my cards this year. Most of them were hand delivered because the postage is ridiculous. Puts such a crimp in the fun of our hobby. Great design Ros.

Sylvia said...

So very pretty, can't believe you are still making Christmas cards! Happy Holidays!

Robyn Oliver said...

Love your cards with sequins Ros...added some to my stash this week from a bargain table now to use them
