I am on Day 4 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Each day my blog will focus on a new holiday card. The challenge is until December 10, 2021. I plan to showcase a different stamp set with each card. This will allow you plenty of time to see the great products that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog and to order in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!
Today’s card is the Stampin’ Up!® Classic Cloche Dome Christmas Shaker Card. The card shaker is made with the Cloche Dome and the Subtle Shimmer Sequins.
Classic Cloche Dome Christmas Shaker Card
- Real Red Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches
- Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches
- Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches
- One Cloche Shaker Dome #156387 (Order HERE)
- A more complete supply list is at the end of the blog
The Cloche Dome can be used with two different stamp sets- the Classic Cloche and the Sweets & Treats! Click on either one to go directly to my Online Store and start shopping.
First use the Cloche Dies to cut out the space for the dome. Then use Real Red Ink to stamp the sentiment under the dome.
This little image of the birds in the dome is actually a 3-Step Stamp. First- stamp the outline of the birds and branches in Memento ink. Second- use the stamp with just the branches with Garden Green Ink. Third- use the stamp with the body of the birds and stamp in Real Red Ink. (I really struggled to get these to line up. I ended up using the Stamparatus because I could place the 2nd and 3rd stamps more accurately.) Alternatively, you could always color in the image using the Garden Green and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers.
Stamp the 3-Step Stamp of the bird image on the lower right-hand corner of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Add the sentiment in Real Red Ink.
Assembling the Card
Adhere the stamped card piece to the inside of the Real Red CS card base.
Adhere the Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the card front. Then lay but DO NOT ADHERE both of the pieces with the dome. Adhere the dome piece with the birds stamped on it ONLY. Pull the sentiment piece away.
Adding the Dome and Sequins
I like to place a few of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the bird card piece. The sequins will fall to the bottom of the plastic dome when the card is upright. Having a few rhinestones allows the sparkle to stay. Now add about a teaspoon of the Subtle Shimmer Sequins onto the center of the bird card piece. (In hindsight, I could have added about 2x the amount of sequins that I did).
Peel the protective cover off of the inside of the Cloche Dome. Carefully place it over the bird card piece and press firmly to adhere.
Now peel the protective cover off of the front of the Cloche Dome. Apply adhesive to the back of the sentiment card piece. Carefully position this piece over the Cloche Dome. Press firmly to adhere.
Add a bow made from the Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon. Voila! The card is finished. Shake it to see how fabulous this shaker card is!
I also have a blog about a Thanksgiving Shaker Card made with the Sweets & Treats stamp set. Check it out HERE.
I really hope you give shaker cards a try. It is such a fun alternative to the standard card!
