Double Trouble 73 - Christmas in Glitter Shaker Form

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 73!

This week, we are winding down our challenges for the year so this is the final challenge of 2020. The quick details are to create a holiday project using electronic cuts or die cuts and to use either patterned paper or some sort of ribbon or twine. The mini image is below - please visit the Double Trouble website for detailed information. 

I was playing with alcohol inks recently and used them on glitter paper. The effect is amazing! Not only do you get the movement with the inks but the glitter makes the background so awesome! I decided to use that paper as my patterned paper for this challenge (even though I created it myself). 

I designed two oval frames on my Cricut to provide a cabin setting in the woods. A moose is peeking out from the left side. I attached the inner frame directly to the background and also added a shadow cut of Santa and a reindeer. I then added foam tape and sequins, fake snow and silver confetti stars inside the shaker. A long thin sentiment was stamped on the front as well as a handful of stars. This card is so much prettier in person than in the photograph. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us your interpretation of the expectations for Challenge 73. 

I am also linking up my card with the Bitten By the Bug challenge

Hi Alyson, this card really caught my eye! I love alcohol ink and the beautiful backgrounds they make. This is really pretty, and it looks so good with the white and those little stars to bring it all together.
