White Christmas Shaker Card

Has it started snowing where you are yet? Diana here today.  We've yet to see flurries but this year I'm a little more eager than usual. We got a new puppy - a Samoyed - and I know he will just love the snow. So between my sleepless nights with a two month old pup and this week's inspiration photo, I made a shaker card with glass glitter for snow.

I used PoppyStamps Grand Madison Window for my shaker front. The tree is done by clear embossing the stamped image on white card stock and then sponging Broken China and Chipped Sapphire for the nighttime sky. I also masked off a moon and added white stars with a white gel pen. To keep the glitter inside the two layers, I used clear cardstock, 1/8 Scor-tape, and foam tape.

I then adhered the window to a layer of kraft card stock cut down to size with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. I couldn't help but add a touch of red using the PoppyStamps Small Blooming Poinsettia against a silver spray of Memory Box Bamboo Shoots. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Christmas Joy.

Stay warm!

Christmas Box Card

Good Morning, Crafty Friends.   It is Shirley posting today.  The card I made for today is matching some of the weather many of you probably have right now.    The challenge this week is to make a card with a Christmas Tree with colors, blue, white, and/or kraft, silver.

I made a box card today.  I started my card using a silver base and the top silver panel was cut at this time, also.  I cut blue layers using Starburst Lichen Aspire Petallic Metallic card stock.   I adhered the card together using 1/4 inch Scor-Tape

I cut the snow using a cutter.  The Winter Trees are by Sue Wilson.  Next, I cut a deer from the Sue Wilson Deer Family - Festive Collection.   I attached the trees and the deer by using Joy Foam Pads Small.  

The final step to my card was cutting this beautiful Joy sentiment that is also from the Sue Wilson Festive Collection.

This card folds flat to fit an A2 Envelope for mailing.   Yay, no extra postage is needed.    If you would like to make one of these cards you can find a tutorial HERE in post #1.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you liked my card.
