Winter Shaker Card

Hi, it's Diana again with another shaker card!  I just love making them and I think they are fun to receive too!

Today I am added a shaker element to my fishtail banner. The layers are made by die-cutting MFT Blueprint 13 from white card stock. With the background layer, I made a snowflake background using Dreamweaver's Regular embossing paste and Memory Box Winter Tiny Snowflakes stencil.

Setting that aside to dry, I started working on my shaker element. First, I centered the new release from PoppyStamps Serendipity Bird Frame on my banner. I then used the same die on Spellbinders Precious Metals Craft Foil, once on silver foil and again on red foil.

Before adhering my layers together, I traced the oval opening onto some fun foam to make room for my beads. I cut 1/8" Scor-Tape to adhere my layers. White cut out banner, clear acetate, and then fun foam. I wrapped some silver floss around my banner before I placed my beads where the opening would be. Using more 1/8" Scor-Tape to adhere my layered banner onto my snowflake embossed background. 

I then glued on my silver branched frame and popped up the red birds onto the acetate with small Joy! foam pads. Finally, I tied a knot to my silver floss, added a little tag featuring a sentiment from ODBD Mini Tag Sentiments and Die set embossed with Silver Detail embossing powder.
