Let it Snow!

Pin It

Ready for snow? We are....although it is not in the forecast yet :( I thought I would make something to put me in the festive mood today. A classic shaker card!

All the supplies and link are at the bottom of this post. I colored up the Holiday Hugs Snowman with my copic markers and then made a little shaker with some Melissa Frances Mica Flakes.

I used 3 sizes of the Rounded Banner STAX...can you spot them? 2 for the shaker, to make all those pieces I cut out the frame, the acetate, the background. 1 for the sweet sentiment tab. That sentiment comes from the Document It - December stamp set.

Below is a peek of the inside.....I stamped the sentiment and embossed it a few more times and added some patterned trim from the leftovers of the front of the card :)

Here is a peek at the sketch...make sure you visit the MFT blog for all the prize details and a list of the designers that made samples to enjoy!

Sherrie - Brilliant minds think alike. I used the same image, banner die cut and snow drifts. Ah, we are so beastly cleav-ah. Love what you did! That shaker affect is perfect. So adorable.
