Over-sized Shaker Card with Rudolph

You know that moment when you start to toss something and then......oh, wait.

That's what I did with the packaging from an embossing folder.  I've had this idea for awhile and finally decided to give it a try.  Let me tell you, shaker cards are not my thing.  Some crafters can pull it off and make it look effortless.  I am NOT one of those crafters!
This card required lots of measurements and even then, I had to trim the top of the kraft card so it was proportional. 

Rudolph was stamped, watercolored with Colorbox archival ink, then fussy cut and adhered to the vellum paper.  That's extra fine red glitter glued to his nose.  Most of the products used are from Pretty Little Studio:  the starry vellum paper, the starry sequins, the speech bubble and wording as well.  Under the vellum is a section of scrapbook paper that was cut from a Martha Stewart Christmas stack and features Santa in his sleigh. 
So there you go.  

Hope you have fun finding joy in re-purposing those almost tossed items too.  
Merry Christmas!
