Shaker Card by Guest Blogger – Melissa-Ann Designs

Hello crafters!

We’ve asked Melissa of Melissa-Ann Designs to guest blog on our site today with an adorable shaker Christmas card! We gave her some Queen & co supplies and she has created this adorable card. See below for the process!




Hi Everyone!

Melissa here, ready to share this fun shaker card I created! The Queen & co window shaker set was perfect for creating a wintery scene, right outside of Santa’s window. Rudolph is happily playing in the yard!

Here’s how I created this card:

I used Avery Elle’s ‘North Pole Pals’ stamps and dies to create the adorable reindeer and Lawn Fawn’s ‘Home for the Holidays’ set for the trees in the background.


To assemble, I traced the window frame onto Christmas themed paper (Doodlebug Designs) and cut it out. I lay that face down on the table, applied double sided tape to the back, then the clear acetate sheet on top of that. I peeled the backing off the foam window and placed that face down on top of the acetate.

Now the windows could be filled without the “snow” falling out.

Using snowflake patterned paper on top and glitter on the bottom, I arranged my winter scene on an A2 card base. I added the trees and those adorable reindeer!

I filled the windows with Queen & co’s toppings, and adhered the card base to the window frame. The card looked great but still didn’t seem quite finished. A quick addition of a sentiment and cute polka dot border strip, and that was that!

I had a ton of fun making this card. Thanks for looking and I hope to be back at Worldwide Scrapbooking Etc soon!
