Good morning ladies....

I think, after this card,  I had better start to up my game with the Christmas cards now that we're half way into the year, we'll just have to see

This is a shaker card.  I used an oval die to die cut the aperture then added a few glittered snowflakes and one reindeer, I added a little glitter onto its antlers so it wouldn't feel left out ;) and finally 'snow' and a few micro beads.  If you add only a few micro beads to any shaker card it stops the other ingredients from sticking to the treat cup.  Also remember to run your anti-static pad/container around the treat cup too

Glitter was also added around the outside of the treat cup

The white poinsettias and star branches were die cut and I coloured the MDF date embellishment and once dry added glitter to that

  • snow ~ The Duck's Doodahs
  • MDF date & reindeer ~ The Range
So, onto the freebie, I'm hoping this week will be 3rd time lucky for someone because the last two winners never claimed their win, so we're back with the Crafter's Companion Christmas Scene Embossing Folder

Comment on today's post by 6pm Saturday and the winner will be announced on Sunday's blog

Until tomorrow....

June ~x~


  1. This is a lovely Christmas card. Thank you for your ideas. Haven’t made any yet. a shame no one has claimed the embossing folder.

  2. Gorgeous card June, I have never used treat cups.
    Cant understand why people never claim, xxx

  3. Smashing card, there's the flowers again, love them June

  4. Haven't used 'treat cups' - don't know why!! Perhaps I really oughtto give them a try!! beautiful card!!

  5. What a really REALLY special card this would be to receive. Its fantastic june and yet again more helpful hints. Ive made shaker cards in the past and never knew to use the anti stat bag on it. Youre full of valuable, useful information. Youd be worth a fortune if you charged for it xxx

  6. Beautiful embossing folder June xxx
