Block Party Christmas Shaker...UNIKO Studios Challenge #44 Reminder Post~Christmas


I'm joining Bev and the wonderful Uniko Design team with a reminder post about  Uniko Studio's Challenge #44~Christmas

You may, earlier this week, have heard a dull rumbling in the distance or felt a tremor of the earth beneath your feet. Not to worry: 'twas just me, wildly cheering and enthusiastically happy dancing that finally, finally, finally, the November release trekked its way across the Atlantic and over most of Canada to arrive in my mailbox!  I was soooo worried that the products had gone missing; turns out, their journey was just...well. incredibly long!

Anyway, I've brought out the fabulous, fun versatile, easy to use, Block Party Christmas set to play.  A bit of copic colouring, a snippet of cutting with a circle die, some stacking/layering, a sprinkling of sequins and ta dahhhh...Christmas card with a spotlight shaker element.  No foam tape for this one, as I wanted the sides to be a bit more polished; stacking layers of cardstock did the trick...

Fun to make and really quite easy to recreate (which I may have done, oh...three or four times *grin*)

For incredible inspiration, please visit the rest of the team; your festive spirit will be soaring!

Yay!!! So happy for you that your stamps arrived. If they could talk wouldn't it be interesting to hear where they went to along the way?? I absolutely adore this card! It is SO fun, happy and jolly! I love the spotlighting you did, too. Fantastic work! Happy weekend to you. PS...don't fall down or faint, but I posted on my blog the other day. I know, can you believe it?!! :) Hugs!

I wondered what that tremor was. ;) I'm so glad you got your crafty supplies, Carol, and this one is so much fun. Using the spotlight technique for your shaker was a brilliant idea.
