Holiday Shaker Card with Kitties

Hello, everybody!  Today I'm sharing another shaker card!  I used to make shakers all the time and then stopped for some reason - I just re-discovered how much I love them!  This one is a holiday thank-you card - I like to have a few of these on hand over the holidays!

These adorable kitties are digital clipart from TheDigitalChick on Etsy. I've been making a lot of cards with this set - this is my 6th one! I added a cute sentiment digitally (freebie from Aud Sentiments a few years ago, but I can't find the direct link) and then fussy-cut both so I could adhere them to the front of the shaker.

For the shaker frame I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares (I die-cut two squares together to create the frame).  The scene background behind the shaker is from The Paper Shelter - Yep, I Have my Methods. Inside the shaker, I used several different styles and sizes of snowflake sequins (some from Kat Scrappiness).  I'll add another photo below so you can see them better.  This is a thank-you card so I added a punny "Thank Mew" sentiment using my Dymo label maker that I've had since I was a child.  The teal card panel is embossed with Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow, and I finished off the card by adhering snowflake sequins in red and white (Kat Scrappiness).

I would also like to support the following challenges: Allsorts Thank You or New Year 3/3; Beccy's Place - Month of Holiday Cards revisiting "S" for shaker, snowflakes, skating) UE: Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional "R" (red, retro) UE; Cute Card Thursday Winter UE; Die Cut Divas Thanksgiving or Thank You 4/4; Kat Scrappiness Let's Give Thanks UE; Mod Squad Thanks or Thankful Shaker Card 3/3; Show Us Your Pussycats Furrything Goes UE; The Paper Funday AG Thanksgiving 4/4; The Paper Shelter 407 Christmas Card 2/3; Tuesday Throwdown Punny Sentiments 2/3

Awesome shaker card Kitty, I love that you've filled it with a variety of snowflake sequins! They give your card a lovely shine and some of them even look holographic. The two kittens are very cute, I like the vintage vibe they give your project. Lovely!
