Catherine Pooler Designs ‘This Christmas’ Release – Adorning Doves Shaker Card

Can I just say I love love love this release. There is something magical about christmas right? It is my most favourite time of year. I would start setting up now if my family didn’t want me to forget about their birthdays along the way (hehe)

Today, I have played with pinks, I know I know its not traditional Christmas colours, however let me tell you I was exploring with non traditional colours with this release. Between you and me I love doing this most years so by the time I am mass producing with the traditional colours I haven’t felt like I have over done it with the green, red white colours combo. It’s my way to keeping me engaged in my hobby.

So let me get started with my card shall I? I am a big fan of the crater lake sequins. It sits on my desk as a go to. It had been a while since I made a shaker card so I wanted to make something easy, interactive and a little on the pretty side.

To show you my process I have created a youtube tutorial on my process. You actually see how I wasn’t happy with how the card started and by adding the inner layer of the shaker component made my heart sing.

I couldn’t help myself….. I did use my ‘Cocktail Party’ Trios with WOW! Embossing Powder. Amongst using my all tiem favourite Metallic Gold Rich I paired it with my Made You Blush embossing glitter.

My favourite tip when it comes playing with new embossing powders & glitters to make a whole embossed 5 x 7 inch panel. This way I get to see the colour in all its glory. It is then ready for me to die cut or cut down into strips and any other elements. If you haven’t watched me over on my channel yet, you see me show casing this tip frequently. I am all about time saving when it comes to crafting as sometimes all I want to do it colour, focus on stamping or even ink blending. Wht is your favourite crafting hack.
