Santa was Here

Christmas Card Making Ideas using My Favorite Things Christmas Tree Cut-out Die-namics and Gifting Fun Clear Stamp Set
Good morning blog friends!  I have more My Favorite Things goodies to show today so, I’m over on the My Favorite Things blog as well with another Christmas card to add to the stash!!  My card today uses the darling cut out Christmas Tree from the Christmas Tree Cut-out Die-namics.  That sweet tree absolutely begs to made into a shaker card, so who was I to argue?  The only challenge I had was deciding which of the many beads, sequins and glitter from my stash, to put inside!  Score!!Christmas Card Making Ideas using My Favorite Things Christmas Tree Cut-out Die-namics and Gifting Fun Clear Stamp Set
I snagged the music paper from my Free Printables Board on Pinterest – HERE.  I created a tag from Stitched Oval Staxx Die-namics and stamped it with the Santa Was Here sentiment from the Gifting Fun Clear Stamp Set.  It hangs just to the left of my bow using silver wired cord – I used the same cord to polish off  the card with a little silver bow.

This is my very first shaker card and I have to say that it is surprisingly easy!  If you’re curious how it is made and want to see the magic behind the scenes; go —–>HERE.   I describe how it is made as well, show you how to stack up the insides of the card, as well as give you shaker card making tips over on the My Favorite Things blog  :-)

Question Parking Lot:

Dottie on comment #14 asked how to download the sheet music I used, a to z.  Dottie, some situations are different, but if you are  on Windows computer I’ll walk through what I did here (I’m on a Windows 7 computer using Chrome).

1.  Pop over to my pinterest page —->HERE  and you’ll see the music I used.
2.  Click on the sheet music thumbnail in pinterest and it will select it and bring it to its own page.  At the top of the page select “Visit Site”
3.  That should take you HERE
4.  Click on the picture of the sheet music.  That will select it and bring it to its own page – in your browser, with the name up top – usually will have .jpg on the end.
5.  Right click on the picture of the music, then select “save image as”
6.  Enter to accept the name and location already given or navigate to where you want to save on your computer and give an appropriate name.
7.  Once it exists as a .jgp or .png on your computer – print it out!
8.  If on a Windows computer you can navigate to where the file lives, right click on it and select print and choose the size you want – otherwise, use a software such as Photo Shop Elements.

    Good morning Becca,

    From a sunny but cold Newcastle in the U.K. At least it was sunny 5 minutes ago but I’ve just looked out of the window and the clouds have rolled in.

    I really like this card, it has a lovely country feel to it, and the blue is gorgeous.

    I have one more Christmas Card to make, and then that’s the lot – unless I remember someone who I’ve forgotton!!!xxReplyCancel

    Beautiful card an intriguing; the ribbon color is gorgeous. Question for the parking lot: I love the sheet music but can’t figure out how to download these freebies to copy them. I went in circles. Any directions? I have tried this before to no avail and am frustrated. Thanks Becca!ReplyCancel
