A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Ornament Shaker Card

I have to give credit for today's card to Loll Thompson - see her post here.  I made a very similar card:

I die cut the red shimmer ornament, backed it with a piece of acetate, and then a layer of fun foam with the same ornament cut out of it. I filled it with red and green sequins, and then backed it with white cs.

The sentiment is heat embossed in a sparkly powder.

I'm entering it in two challenges:

The Merry Christmas Challenge - optional theme of "ornaments".

SCS CAS Challenge - Keep It Clear - use something clear on your card.
