Waffle Flower Sneak Peek Kit #08

A Country Christmas Shaker Card

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Waffle Flower Link Party!  This month’s party – and my card today – feature products from Sneak Peek Club #08!  

In case you hadn’t heard, the Sneak Peek Club provides Club Members with a super fun monthly kit of Waffle Flower products.  Members get the products about a month earlier than they are released to everyone else!  So, if you’re interested in being a Club Member, you can sign up here:  Club  

To make the party even more fun, Waffle Flower is generously providing a GIVEAWAY* to one of my blog readers (that would be YOU) if you comment on this blog post by August 30th, 2023.  The GIVEAWAY* is Kit #08 – the same kit I used to make my card for today!  Winners are picked at random and will be announced on Waffle Flower’s Link Party post*the GIVEAWAY can only be shipped to the US.

My card for the Party is a Christmas Tree shaker card done in an old-fashioned country style and featuring the Christmas Tree shaker dies and coordinating shaker “bubble’ from the new kit, along with one of the subsentiments. 

I love to mix and match my new supplies with classics from my stash and that is what I did with this card.  I combined the new Kit supplies with dies from the Mistletoe Branch set that was release last year.  I also used a previously released sentiment for the “Merry Christmas”.  All supplies are listed in the “Supplies” list below.  

I hope you like this card and that it inspires you to get a head start on your Christmas card-making – it’s never too soon!  

For even more inspiration, be sure to head over to the Link Party and check out what other designers have made using this kit.  Pssst: you’ll have more chances to win the GIVEAWAY if you visit and comment on their blogs too!

Have a wonderfully creative day!

designer & content creator

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
