Shaker Bauble with Chippies

Hello, everyone! I hope you've had a wonderful day today! I had to wait until Christmas was over to share the little shaker bauble I made!  I just love how this turned out!

The little chippies and cocoa mug are from Poppystamps Cup of Cheer, and I coloured them with Prismacolor pencils.  The chippies were cut with the coordinating die and I fussy-cut the mug. The background is die-cut with Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop, and I used Lawn Fawn's Forest Border and Stitched Hillside Borders as well.  I added SU Dazzling Diamond glitter along the snowy landscape and trees to add some sparkle.

I bought the bauble at Dollarama (set of 4) and I used just half of one and mounted it to a die-cut wavy circle (My Creative Time).  Inside the bauble is vase filler, which I also found at Dollarama - it looks just like little ice cubes!  The half-bauble is tied with silver twine, all ready to hang on the tree!

This is the last appearance of the year for my little elf Eli!  He is heading back to the North Pole today to meet up with his new BFF Loopy!  He wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Eli would like to link up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky one final time, but he'll be back next year

Merry Christmas Eli from Daisy! Like the shaker bauble. Did you use foam on the back of the bauble before you adhered it to the scallop circle? I made a shaker card also but not sure I like how it looks. I'll post it tomorrow perhaps.

Gorgeous shaker bauble Kitty, those little critters are so cute! I like the addition of the cup of hot chocolate to keep them warm in that icy, winter scene. Great idea to use the vase filler as your shaker material, it really does look like little ice cubes. Clever!
