Newton's Nook Designs Deck the Halls Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends! Today is the annual Newton's Nook Designs Deck the Halls Blog Hop! 

Today I'm sharing a fun Christmas shaker card using the Splendid Stags and Pines + Holly die sets. I die cut the stag head from gold card stock about 4 times and glued all of the layers together for some added dimension. I used the Garden Window die set to create the shaker window from pattern papers from the My Mind's Eye "Christmas on Market Street" paper pack. I filled the shaker window with gold confetti, silver shimmer seed beads, and woodland seed beads from Pretty Pink Posh. I die cut the holly from green start and the bow from red card stock. The sentiment is from one of the tags from the Joyful Tags set. I simply heat embossed the the tag on vellum and then fussy-cut the sentiment out. This is a great way to get more from your stamps and sentiments :).
