Christmas Wishes - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #282

I got my preorder for the new Occasions catalogue late last week, and as usual, I'm itching to start using the wonderful new products. Since the added challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday had a Holiday theme, as well as a sketch challenge, I thought I would make a card using of one of the new Christmas stamp sets and DSP.

Yes, a shaker card featuring the "Christmas Wishes" stamp set and the Candy Cane Lane DSP.  And because of the shaker element I changed the sketch somewhat and placed the entire circle on the card front rather than having it go over the side and below the bottom.

I first stamped the images on a piece of Whisper White card stock, using the masking technique to put both these images together.  They were coloured with a blender pen and various colours of ink pads. The snowfakes were stamped with Marina Mist ink, using a stamp from "Sheltering Tree".
As much as I like the Wink of Stella glitter pen, I still love the sparkle and glam that dazzling diamonds give.  So, I applied that on various parts of the image.

The front of the card was first embossed with the  decorative dots embossing folder, and a 1" strip of DSP was adhered the left side.

Using the circles framelits, a circle was die cut in the card front.  Then, using 2 circle framelits (one the same size as the one used to cut the circle in the card front, and the other 2 sizes bigger) the mat circle was die cut using Crumb Cake card stock.  This was adhered to the card front around the die cut circle.

The shaker element was made as usual, using Frosted sequins embellishments, now retired from SU.
Some of these embellishments were adhered to the front of the card as well.

The Christmas sentiment "Jolly" was die cut using silver glimmer paper.
