Retro Reindeer Shaker

Hello, everyone!  Lately I've been enjoying all things retro, and I fell in love with this cute reindeer image that I received during the Gecko Galz Annual Blog Hop last week called Pretty Pink Christmas.  I decided to make a shaker card!  I've been inspired by Gecko Galz White Christmas Challenge as well as Beccy's Place - A Month of Holiday Cards, where I've jumped ahead to the letter "R" for retro and reindeer.  

I die-cut a rectangle (Whimsy Stamps) from an embossed panel (Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow) and adhered acetate to the reverse side to create the shaker.  I adhered foam tape to the back of the panel, added some clear sequins in various shapes and sizes, and then adhered the adorable reindeer.  I finished off the card with a stamped sentiment (SugarPea Designs) in pink and three irridescent snowflake sequins.

I would also like to support the following challenges:

These images always remind me of my childhood Kitty, we would receive cards just like these from family and friends and Mum would display them on one of our large windows.
I love the colour scheme of your card, the pinks and blues are so pretty. The image is darling and I love that you've made it into a beautiful shaker card. Love the embossed frame!

What a wonderful card, Kitty! Love the retro dear and shaker but what caught my eye was the gorgeous texture on the frame and the pop of color on it. Just really brings the whole card together. Hope you are well. Stay safe!
