Winter Wonderland Christmas

It's hard to believe that Christmas will be here in just a couple short weeks! Hope you are all ready!

I've taken a break from Christmas decorating, cooking baking, present wrapping, and the Hallmark Channel (lol) to whip up a fun little shaker card using Let It Snow and Magic of Christmas stamps.

Although I added a little more glitter to the shaker part than I had anticipated, I still love the card.

To make this card, I started by cutting a circle out of the top panel. I then lightly traced the circle on my card base and stamped the image in the center. I added some color with markers and some "snow" with Nuvo Drops.

I flipped over the front panel and attached a clear piece of acetate over the opening. I then added dimensional tape to coral the "shaker guts" (that's a technical term, right?). I attached a snowglobe frame to the front, added some snowflakes from the Let It Snow set and stamped the sentiment in red. I also added a couple of snowflake stickers to the acetate.

Then I flipped the card back over and added some glitter to the center of the acetate. I removed the protective paper from the dimensional tape and carefully placed the card base on the panel, making sure there was a good seal so no glitter would leak out. 

To me, shaker cards are just so fun. I'm not sure why I don't make more of them!
