Winter Wonderland

I've been wanting to try my hand at a vellum shaker envelope, and finally did it.......I had an extra panel of stamped Avery Elle trees from their Let It Snow set, and just stitched a piece of vellum over it, closing it up after I'd added some snowflake and other sequins ....Here's the result:

other supplies: Simon's Surf Blue cardstock, Winnie & Walter's sentiment from their new Winter Wonderland set, and a Penny Black snowflake cut from glitter paper

The sequins don't move as freely as in a regular shaker, but it's still a fun effect, don't you think?

  1. Lin it's wonderful, love the blues! I think you've inspired me to make vellum shaker card too. I find the traditional one (with the form tape) is a bit thick to send via snail mail! :)

  3. Ein Traum von Karte.
    Ich liebe diese zarten filigranen Eiskristalle.
    Es sieht so fantastisch aus.
    Und die kleinen, schwebenden Flocken, im Innern der Karte, runden das Bild ab.
    Super schön!

  4. I love this idea, especially with the snowflakes because the vellum adds to the sense of soft snow. Stunning Lin!
