To You & Yours Shaker Card Project Kit

The Shaker Card Kit comes with enough materials to make 18 cards, 6 each of the three designs I posted below.  It coordinates nicely with the "To You & Yours Too" Stamp Set, but since I already had purchased a few new Christmas stamps in the Holiday Catalog, I knew I had sets that would coordinate as well.  So, my cards have a few slight differences, but as you can see you can follow the directions using the kit and coordinating stamp set, or use stamp sets you already have.  The cards coordinate with Cucumber Crush and Real Red ink.

The differences in my cards will be noted below each card.

My Tree Shaker Card has a different sentiment as well as a different tree stand and stamped tree.  My sentiment and base are from the Festival of Trees Set in the Annual Catalog.  My tree stamped on the inside piece is from the new Peaceful Pines Stamp Set.
You can see here that when you take the green frame and place it on your die cut piece you will have a full green tree remaining to use on another project.

My joy card used everything in the kit except the ornament top is from the Lots of Joy Set in the Annual Catalog.

The only difference in the Merry & Bright Card is that I used the star from the Festival of Tree Stamp Set to add more stars to the card front.  The small stars are part of the kit.

You will also have nice gold stars left over for another project since you only use the outline for the card.

This kit is a really great value, and with the dimensional strips and precut window sheets that come with all of the other pieces in the kit, it makes it really easy to make Shaker Cards.
