Snowflake Shaker card - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #248

That's one thing we have had very little of this winter (so far) - is snow.  Not that I'm complaining!  I prefer this to shoveling and slipping and sliding.

The challenge with Try Stampin on Tuesday is a sketch challenge - snowflakes can be added if we wished to.  Guess what, I wished to.  I decided to make a snowflake shaker card.

  • This is a 5 by 5 Pacific Point base card which has had a shaker element built into the front of it.
  • I used Fun Foam to make the shaker, die cutting the circle using the Circle Framelits.  The Whisper White front layer was die cut at the same time.  I also die cut a piece of Christmas DSP that had snowflakes in the pattern- to place behind the shaker.
  • A window sheet, die cut with the circle framelits was attached to the wrong side of the whisper white layer using the Fine Tip glue pen.
  • The die cut fun foam was adhered to the DSP which was attached to a piece of Whisper White cardstock slightly smaller than the card size.
  • Frosted Sequins were used as the shaker elements.
  • On the right side I used the embossed resistance technique using Plenty of Wishes embossed with white embossing powder and then the panel sponged with Pacific Point ink.  A paper towel was used to make the snowflakes "pop".  A circle framelit was used to cut the circle around the shaker, and it was then adhered to the front of the card.  A piece of silver ribbon was adhered to the edge of this panel.
  • The rest of the Whisper White card front was stamped randomly with the snowflake stamp from Happy Scenes in Pacific Point ink.
  • Before adding the snowflake embellishments, I die cut a circle of dazzling diamond glimmer paper (use 2 sizes of circles and die cut at the same time) and adhered it around the periphery of the shaker circle.
  • The embellishment consists of a small snowflake punched in Pacific Point using the Snow Flurry punch.  On top of that, and adhered with a glue dot is a snowflake punched in dazzling diamond glimmer paper, using a non SU punch.  In the center is a silver sequin.

  • Only the first part of the sentiment is on the front of the card.  The rest is on the inside.
