Hello there inky friends! I'm moving way past Fall and making a mad dash to WINTER! Is anyone with me? WOO! Fall and Winter are my most favorite seasons and I am already over raking leaves and wet leaves from the yucky rain, so let's move on to winter, shall we?!
Today, I'm joining my fellow Heartfelt Creations DT Alumni as we share some fun inspiration and fun this month!

I created my wintery card using the adorable stamps Merry Moments (On sale now!) Cling set and the Candy Cane Cottage (On Sale Now!) Cling set. I paired it up with the pretty Poinsettia & Holly Clusters Cling set/Dies and Shaping Mold to make a fun and festive shaker card.Blue Suede Shoes Prills and Minnie Pearls Prills and mounted a laminated panel to the top and tested out the shaker with a shake, shake, shake! Perfect!
Next, I cut a piece of light blue cardstock and freeform cut the inside to create a fun frame. I rubbed the edges of the panel with my finger to fuss it up a bit and then stamped the holly leaves with embossing ink then used some white embossing powder to make the holly leaves show up and make the blue panel blend well with the scene. After that, I mounted it over the laminated sheet and attached the whole shaker to the front of an A2 card base (topfold). To finish things off, I diecut some poinsettias, pressed them in the mold and assembled them. I added some glitter to make them shine then mounted them on the card. I added some acrylic flats to the center of each flower and my card was complete. Can't wait to send this card to someone special!
Thanks for hopping over to my blog to check out my card. I hope it inspires you to create something amazing and please stop by again. Make sure to hop over to Amarilys' blog to see her inspiring creation! See you next month and good luck!
