Sweet Holiday Wishes

Hello, everybody!  I made another holiday card and it's a shaker!  Again I included a gingerbread cookie!  I'm obsessed with gingers!

I used one of the images from a new digital set from Beccy's Place called Christmas Cheers.  Before printing, I digitally added the cute gingerbread man from Beccy's Place Gingerbread set so that he's peeking out from behind the cup.  I coloured the image with markers, fussy-cut, and added some dots with a white paint pen.  

The die-cut is Avery Elle Oval Burst, and I added lots of sequins and snowflake sequins to the shaker.  The white background panel is embossed with Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow.  The sentiment is also from Beccy's Place Christmas Cheers, and I added colour to some of the letters with a red marker. I finished the card with three red snowflake sequins.

I'm happy to be joining the Fall/Winter 2021 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, along with the following  challenges:

A gingerbread obsession is perfectly fine Kitty, especially at this time of the year... and the paper ones have no calories!
Love the card you created. The shaker background is awesome, I love the mix of sequins you added, especially those snowflakes. Great idea to add the embossing to the very back panel of the card, the texture looks wonderful.
