Christmas Slimline Shaker Card with Catherine Pooler Designs


Let's talk a little about the Card Maker Success Summit!  We hosted one of the most epic card making events of the year!  This summit was focused on helping card makers like you get a game plan for their holiday card making projects.

There was over 12K attendees who registered for the event.  Crafters from all over the world came together to get their holiday card making projects off the ground!

Although the summit is over for now, we have plans in the works to host another summit in early spring 2022.  You can get on the VIP waitlist here so you will be notified when the event opens it's doors again.

Card Details

The folks over at Catherine Pooler Designs sent me a bunch of goodies for me to play with and when I saw this slimline paper  and the Nice List stamp set, I just knew it screamed shaker card.

To get started, I stamped the elves images with the Midnight Ink pad onto Neenah Solar White Cover cardstock.   It's one of my favorite white cardstock when doing Copic coloring.

I choose Copic colors that coordinated with the lime green plaid patterned paper.  Here are the colors I used .


  • RV29
  • R27


  • YG11
  • YG05



I decided to use the bright green plaid pattern paper from the Under the Tree slimline pattern paper pack as the front card panel. I created the windows for the shaker bits.  I used the Doodle Window Slimline die. This cut out perfectly spaced out circle windows for my elves to be dropping into.

I adhered a piece of clear acetate plastic to the card panel with some liquid glue. Then I adhered my cut out images on top of the clear window sheet.

Next I used some thin flexible 1/8″ double sided foam adhesive to create a well around the clear window.  I put a little antistatic powder down to help my sequins move a little more freely in the window.

Next I inserted some super cute and fun North Pole Sequin Mix into the shaker windows. After that I adhered another panel of the pattern paper to the back of the shaker panel.

Then this entire panel was adhered to my card base which measured 8.5″ x 3.5″.



Next I die cutted the word sentiment from the Merry Christmas Word die with some gold mirror card stock. I also die cutted 2 more layers from just basic white card stock and glue these 3 layers together. This gave a little dimension to the sentiment.

Lastly I took some of the sequins from the mix used in the shaker and glued them onto the card panel just to finish off the card and give it some bling.
