Traditional Christmas FUSION.. with Glitter!

Can you believe it's almost Christmas!!!

I don't know about you, but I seem to be short on my Christmas card stash again this year! So I've decided to celebrate the last FUSION of 2015 with two Christmas variations on a theme.

The first card is inspired by this super versatile FUSION sketch, rotated 90 degrees to create a Christmas shaker card. Created this super glittery shaker card using silver and gold glitter paper, diecut with Lil Inkers Stitched Snowflakes and Stitched Oval shaker opening, together with Winnie and Walters Joy sentiment. Added a sheet of clear acetate to the cardstock piece to create the window. Finally some fabulous glittery star and circle sequins from Winnie and Walter, then created the walls of the shaker with double-sided foam tape and adhered to the cardstock card base.

Second card is a more traditional Christmas card, inspired by the theme and colours of the FUSION inspiration photo, together with the sketch. Created using the same die-cuts, with the addition of Memory Box Pine Branches, all cut from Kaisercraft and Basic Grey patterned papers.

As usual, you can play along with FUSION using either this gorgeous photo inspiration, or this fabulously versatile sketch, or a combination of both.

Pop on by the Design Team blogs for some more super FUSION inspiration:

Hope to see you playing along, can't wait to see what you create!

  1. two lovely versions Lyndal - how different each looks just by changing colors and accessories! Julia xx

  2. Love the two versions...all the glitter and shimmer is fabulous.

  3. Flipping the sketch gives a completely different look! Both cards are fabulous and it's amazing how different they look using basically the same products but different colours.
