Christmas Card ~ Merry and Bright {2nd Post}

I just couldn't resist turning this beautiful ornament into a shaker card.
The red, green and gold sequins join this pretty Verve sentiment 
inside for a cheerful Christmas greeting.
I embossed the long red strip to give my card a little texture.
I continued the design inside my card by stamping two of the 
ornament top designs side by side and adding a single sequin to the center.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Ornament and sentiment from the Ornamental Christmas stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Circle and wavy circle cut using the Bunch of Fun Circles die set from My Creative Time.
*Embossed using one of the folders from the Cuttlebug Wedding Suite set.
*Sequins from Darice.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
