Merry Christmas Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends!  Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!  Yesterday we had our annual cookie baking day and we had so much fun making Christmas cookies for our friends and family.  This has been a tradition for years and it is so nice that we continue the tradition even with everyone's crazy schedules.  

And our finished product:

 Do you have any fun Christmas traditions?  

Today I have a Christmas shaker card to share with you that I made featuring Lawn Fawn's Winter Sparrows stamp set. 

I started by masking a moon and distressing the background with several different blue distress inks.  I wanted to have a snowy scene, so I used the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp with white embossing paste. Sorry the picture is blurry, I had a difficult time getting a clear picture. 

I used the Stitched Rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp as the border for the shaker card.  These dies are perfect for shaker cards.  I just love how the stitched border adds a polished look to the card.  Here's a closer look: 

I'm going to play along with the Christmas challenge going on at the Lawnscaping Blog

I'm also entering this card in the Winter Inspiration challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
