How to create a Christmas Cookie Jar Shaker Card

Hi Guys! I'm Debbie from Debbie J’s Crafting Corner, here today sharing how I created this Christmas Cookie Jar Shaker Card using Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

I love showing the process when I’m creating.  I hope my tutorial and video help you see that, if I can make it, You Can Too!

I used the following stamps and dies from Dies R Us:

 First we Stamp

First we stamp.  I stamped out a bunch of the cookie images, using the solid pieces to color in all of the frosting.  

Then I stamped out the scene for the front of the card.  This includes the jar, the cookies on the “counter” and the cookies still in the jar.  

In order to stamp the frosting, I did some simple masking using Post-it tape for the masks.

Then we color

Then we color.  Well… there wasn’t much coloring needed. But the cookies needed to be baked, right?  So I tried water-coloring with the Caramel ink from Hero Arts and it worked great.

Then I added some double sided adhesive from Scrapbook.com to the back of the cookie images and label for the jar, and fussy cut them out.

Create the Shaker

To create the shaker, I added double sided adhesive to some Darice foam and cut out the well using the shaker die in the shaker add on die set.

 Then removed the backing paper and adhered some clear acetate, cut from another die in the set, to the foam.

Decorating the Front

Time to decorate the front of the card.  We don’t want the cookies to be floating in the air. 

So I created a countertop by masking off a horizon line with Post-it tape.  I colored the wall in soft blue, and the counter in yellow.

Then I added some splatter and a heat embossed sentiment, and adhered the card together.

Add the Shaker Bits

Now for the fun bit… shaker bits.

I poured out a small pile of a Christmas confetti mix from Dollar Tree into the center of the jar on my card front.  Once they were arranged away from the edges, I adhered my shaker well to the front of the card, over the stamped jar on the card.
