Holly Jolly Christmas | Inspired by - Christmas Color Palette

Oh, Friends, I’m feeling a bit like a kid in a candy store with all the yummy, pretty goodies that have been filling my desk since I switched things over into Holiday mode. And since I started playing with this delicious color palette. It's hard to know where to look (and what to create) first! So I figured, it might as well inspire a card design! 

Much like my overwhelming delight, I can't imagine anything more exciting to a kiddo than a truck full of colorful candies. Here, I've made a shaker to capture just that. 

This cute truck is a part of this beautiful TSM set, and I've used it for some simple notecards in the past. 
Today, it got a little makeover with just a bit of acetate, and some sparkly sprinkles!

I used the co-ordinating die to cut the cutie, and then my scissors to cut out the inside. Since it is such a thin outline, I used my paper-stacking shaker method. You can see how I make these in this video.

To decorate the card, I used bits and bobs from the Merry Mail stamp set, and added a few little sprinklings of enamel dots, rhinestones and string. 

How fun filling this cutie with so much sparkly joy! And getting a first swing at the color palette inspired by my hair conditioner (you can read more about it here!)

Thanks for visiting, darlings! I'd love to see what you make with these colors!
