Now that we've wrapped up our previous challenge, let's get started on our new challenge!

Lynn used our brand new 5564 – Mousey Christmas Set and you are going to LOVE her card!
She also has a video tutorial so be sure to watch that too.

There were 3 other new releases yesterday.  

 **New Release** Mousey Christmas - Edge-to-Edge Shaker Card!

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

Watch Video tutorial here!!!

Bonnie has done it again! She has created the most adorable Christmas stamp set with the most adorable mice. This brand new set is called "Mousey Christmas (5564)" and includes three little festive mice and all of the coordinating sentiments to make a super fun holiday card! And my favorite part.....the dies are included!!!

I thought this stamp set would be perfect for my "Pretty in Pink" challenge feature! Of course, when I found out that my feature card was to be a "Pink" theme I was so happy! As you may have figured out already....I love this color!

We will be creating an Edge-to-Edge shaker card! These are so super simple....yet have a great impact. It will look like you spent hours creating this and it truly takes no time at all! I'll show you how to create this design and give you a few tips for adding your shaker elements. This card design is very addicting so be prepared to want to make several more!

We will use the brand new Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) as well and this die set includes all of the dies you would need to create a beautiful journal booklet. However, there are so many dies in this set that can be used in so many different ways. We will be using the little photo corners for the four corners of the front of this card. It is a perfect way to frame this edge-to-edge shaker design. We will also use the scalloped circles from this same set for our sentiment. This set has a lot of bang for the buck...I will be using lots of different elements in the coming weeks!

We will set the scene for this card by creating a peppermint striped background with some ink blending and lots of spattering. We will spatter our background with the ink from our marker, some white acrylic paint, and some sparkly liquid stardust! Then we will inlay this pretty background into another striped background to create our peppermint stripes.

I really wanted to stay with a pink and red color theme for this card so I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in a variety of pinks, reds and grays and then I added just a touch of turquoise. The colors I used in todays video are as follows: Lt Pink, Wine Red, Turquoise Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray, Warm Gray 3, Warm Gray 4.

Once our image is colored in we can die cut it and then we can assemble our shaker pocket. We will fill it with some pretty hearts, sequins, and snowflakes!

Let's attach this pocket to a pretty pink top folding card base and add a fun sentiment to the inside of the card for a finishing touch!

Thank you so much for joining me today!  Have a fun and crafty day!!!
