3D Christmas Tree Flat Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello, my friends!

Today's 3D Christmas Christmas Tree Shaker card is part of the Honey Bee Stamps Vintage Holiday Release Instagram Hop. I hope you can join us →there and leave a comment to qualify for two $25 Gift Cards to their shop.

This card is a bit of an oxymoron. It has 3D elements along with a flat shaker window, but the trees do fold flat to fit in an envelope. I will also share a Reel on Instagram where I show you what that looks like later today.

CARD RECIPE
  • Dry emboss the snowflake design using the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate onto a card panel using white cardstock.
  • Trim off the edges of the panel. (This isn't necessary but I wanted to create a smaller frame to glue to the card front).
  • Build your shaker pocket. 
    • Cut plastic/acetate slightly larger than the panel. 
    • Cut off corners.
    • Fold sides flaps down and adhere in behind with double-sided tape, leaving one side open.  
    • Pour in shaker bits I used Blizzard Confetti Mix (Glitter, flat sequins, or confetti work best to keep down the bulk and they slide around better with limited space).
    • Adhere the remaining flap down to close the shaker pocket.
    • Add the shaker pocket to the front panel of the card base. I used foam tape, but not necessary if you want to make it flat.
    • Use either scrap plastic from packaging, acetate, or a premade shaker pocket. I used packaging plastic this time. If you want to see how I created the first-ever frameless/edge to edge/infinity/flat shaker card watch this video I made a few years ago→ HERE.

  • Cut four layers for each tree using the Pine Tree Dies (Largest and smallest were used here).
  • Used a scoring board and score each tree down the middle. 
  • Fold each tree.
  • Add a line of liquid adhesive down the middle score line of each layer. Glue scored edge of the next tree down. Repeat until the last tree is glued to the top. Allow them to dry completely before fluffing.
  • Add gems or embellish as desired.

  • Die-cut the Merry Christmas greeting from Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays Dies I glued four layers together to give it that chipboard thickness and look.
  • Finish off by gluing the elements to the card front.

I hope you were inspired by this 3D Christmas Tree Flat Shaker Card. I had so much fun making it. This technique will work with many other die cuts to create the 3D effect. I hope you give it a try!

Here's a quick video to show you how this came together.

DIY Christmas Greeting Card Keepsake Ornament


So what do you do with all the Christmas Greeting cards you received? 

I can't bring myself to throwing them out, after all I feel like they are little gifts when you open the mail. Especially those that are so personal and have pictures of friends and family on them. 

 So, for today's post I want to share with you how I re-purpose the cards and turn them into keepsake ornaments. Here is 2016's Christmas Keepsake Ornament.


Pictured below are a few other examples of the ornaments I have made from previous years using the same technique. You can make these any shape you want as long as you can fold them in half.


Watch how I create one of these yearly Greeting Card Keepsake Ornaments in my latest YouTube video. I will have a links to all the supplies I used below this blog post and in the video description.

For another unique way of creating a keepsake ornament, click HERE to see how I made my 2012 ornament. I really love how this one turned out, but to be honest it was a little more work and it is why I have been doing them like I am showing you today ;)


Hope you have been inspired today and start creating some of your own Christmas Greeting Card Keepsake Ornaments. Remember you can use this idea and create ornaments to represent any occasion and then hang them as memories of the years on your Christmas tree!








Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
