Winter Window

Hi, it's Jenny posting today with a shaker card!  I started with a top folding A2 card base. I cut a second piece of card stock 1/4 of an inch smaller on all sides and then used a Cheery Lynn Designs Window B die to cut the center.

On the main card base I stamped the Stacy Stamps The Woods stamp using distress ink. I stamped the stamp three times to fill the scene. Then I sponged blue distress ink on the background using my Mini Ink Blending Tool. I went over the trees with Stickles for sparkle and let it dry.

Before I put a piece of salvaged plastic (from toy packaging) and foam tape around the card to create the shaker and trap the glitter, I cut a piece of frosted self adhesive paper, using the Impression Obsession Icicle die and adhered it to the top of the window. Once the shaker was assembled the adhesive side of the icicle picked up the glitter. The icicles aren't as distinct but really sparkle.

Once the shaker portion of the card was finished, the exterior of the card looked too simple. I cut Cheery Lynn Designs Holly Leaves, Mini Flourish Band, and Lace Corner Deco J to embellish the front. I cut the Lace Corner Deco J four times, and stacked them for dimension. Before gluing them to the card I added  Cloud Nine Velvet (Microfine) glitter to them. I used the same glitter on the holly before I adhered the leaves with Joy Foam Pads.

I embellished the Flourish band by coating it in Frantage Embossing Powder before gluing it to the card front. And last, to finish the card I added three Rhinestones to the holly leaves.
