Learn to Make an Illuminated Easel Shaker Card!

Can you believe that this is the last weekend in October? And Halloween is on Monday? Where does the time go? I'm feeling anxious about starting my Christmas shopping! The big thing on my mind right now, though, is finishing my November newsletter and getting it out there this weekend. Especially because I have a really busy weekend coming up. Last Saturday, our Refugee Care Collective got together to make apple pies as a fundraiser. We made 105 pies before noon, but still had a lot of apples left, so we're doing the same thing this Saturday! They're $10 each and really yummy for those of you who live nearby and want in on it.

                                  The pies are frozen with baking instructions on the label.

On Sunday, I'm rehearsing a Christmas play with the Sunday School kids that we will be presenting on December 11th. There isn't much time to get it together when we can only rehearse on Sundays, so that's a bit scary! And I'm helping with an Alpha course Sunday night!

So with all that going on, it's not leaving a lot of time left over for the newsletter! I do have the Free Photo Tutorial planned however. As you know, if you subscribe to my newsletter, each month I offer a free photo tutorial with step-by-step instructions for making a papercrafting project, and this month, I will be showing you how to create this beautiful Illuminated Easel card that is also a shaker card.

Although the card folds flat for mailing, you can prop it up as shown and put a little battery powered votive candle in behind the front and it will shine through the window with the wreath on it. You can just see some trees in the distance behind the sequin snow that "falls" when you tip the card. The window makes use of the antique-looking Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate which is sturdier and easier to use than Window sheets. The walls and carpet are from the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper, while the window is created with the Hearth and Home Framelits.

The free Photo Tutorial includes a list of supplies and measurements as well, including how to order them if needed.
