Snowman Season, Itty Bitty Christmas, Feels Like Frost, 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Today I wanted to make a shaker card. I have not made one in a long time and now I remember why.  I find them a little time consuming, though I did start with the shaker so by the time I was ready for it, the glue was dry and I could move forward.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Gray card stock.  Not a color I would normally use for a Christmas card, but it just worked here.  This card is folded on the left and opens on the right.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Feels Like Frost" 6" x 6" paper pack. I cut it 2-7/8" x 3" x 4-1/8".  The Seaside Spray piece behind it is cut 3" x 4-1/8".  The Whisper White piece was cut 3-1/2" x 4-5/8".  

I taped the Whisper White piece to the card base.  I taped the Seaside Spray and DSP together.  I wished I had just let the image on the DSP show instead of stamping a piece of Whisper White card stock with Seaside Spray snowflakes from the "Snowman Season" set.  I think that would have looked better.

I cut the circle for the shaker card using Basic Gray card stock.  The stuff on the inside are sequins from the "Snowflake Sequins" container.  And I added a couple of pinches of the "Ice Stampin' Glitter".  I put the shaker card together with the foam strips.  And I taped the piece in place on top of the card.  Then I set the DSP layered piece in place on top of the Whisper White card stock using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set.  The words are "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I masked off the other words, inked up the "Merry Christmas", removed the mask and stamped them on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I punched them out using the "Classic Label" punch.  I set the punched piece in place using Dimenisonals. 

It was kind of fun but shaker cards are not my favorite to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
