More shakers

After making the shaker card for the Crafter's Companion challenge last week I decided to make a few more.
This first one is again an 8inch square card. I've used pearlescent pink card for the background and pearlescent blue card for the matting and circle on top of the acetate on the shaker element. The stars backing paper is from the Cute companions Cd.
The Christmas tree stencil, from Dreamweaver, has been embossed and then inked with Brilliance ink. The silver stars inside are from my stash and the snowflakes are from Nesties and have been cut in the same blue and pink card with the addition of a glittered silver snowflake, all held together with a pale pink brad.
The sentiment is from Lakeland.
The stars and sentiment look pink but it must just be the reflection from the pearlescent card.
These next two are A5 in size and use the same stencil embossed and coloured with Brilliance inks in purple and pink. I've used glittered snowflakes from Craftime and peel-off sentiments. On one I have used silver paper and the other pink pearlescent paper for the backer. The circles are pink pearlescent card or purple matt card. Silver trees and stars under the acetate are from my stash.
Dotty organza ribbon from Ribbon Rasis and lace complete the cards.
I bought the stencil with the idea of using it with glitter on double sided sticky sheets but haven't got round to that - maybe next year!
