Joy to the World: Heartfelt Creations

Hello Friends and thank you for coming back to my blog this week for another visit.  I am sharing with you a fairly easy shaker card using the Festive Holly Collection From Heartfelt Creations.  I know that Christmas is 5 months away, but there are many who are already counting down and prepping their Christmas Cards, so this week i am sharing a simple shaker card with you. 

For this shaker card; I used Spellbinder Circle dies to create a frame around the die cut part of the cardinal paper, covered the bottom of the frame with clear cardstock and then went about creating my shaker card.  The shaker Glitter is from Papericious and here it is.
