winter wishes...

Hello friends!!  Wow.. we had a crazy windstorm last night!  Once, again, I had to deflate our Santa to make sure he didn't blow away.  My little guy was rather worried that he still would even after I took him down!   Today it is partly sunny with very little wind... hoping it stays that way!  This morning I took some time to make a little shaker card for a couple of challenges:  CASology (silver) and Colour Me! (silver and navy).


A few weeks ago I purchased the Hero Arts Stamp & Cuts set "Let It Snow" at my local craft store.  When I saw the set I thought it would be perfect for making a shaker card.   This is a pretty simple card, but given that it was a shaker it still took me way too long to make!  Sigh... I'm shaker challenged, lol!   After I cut the top piece to the size I wanted I die cut the opening using the die that came in the set.  I then positioned the panel on my card base and stamped the snowflake in the opening using Night of Navy ink.  I trimmed off a bit more of bottom, added some silver glitter paper and then stamped the sentiment in navy ink. To finish the shaker element I surrounded the snowflake with foam tape and placed silver and clear sequins inside.  A piece of clear cardstock (acetate) was adhered over the opening, more foam tape added to the piece and then it was adhered to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Die Cuts with a View silver glitter; Stamps and dies:  Hero Arts; Ink:  Stampin Up! Night of Navy

This is the most adorable little shaker card, Rosemary! I am always skeptical of shaker cards that profess to be CAS but this one is perfect! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
