Snowflake Shaker Card
by Sue McRae
Happy Tuesday crafters! Sue here with my first Christmas card of the season using products from the new Holiday 2021 release. There’s lots of amazing dies, stamps, paper and embellishments available for your holiday cards. Check them out here.
I created a shaker card using the Snowflake Corner Frame die cut from gorgeous black glitter cardstock that has flecks of blue and purple in it. It is so sparkly in person, the camera doesn’t capture all its shimmery goodness. You must run out and buy this paper pad along with the two other ones in this release. They are so pretty!
I created an inky background for the frame with purple Distress Oxide Inks.
Then splattered the background with inks and paint.
I added white, silver and iridescent shaker bits to keep it light.
I mounted the frame onto a white card base that I embossed with the Stunning Mandala 3D Embossing Folder. The frame hides a good portion of the design but I love all the texture and detail that you can see peeking out around the edges.
I debated whether or not to add a sentiment and decided to go with a small one tucked in the corner. I used a leftover piece from the inked background for this.
To add a bit more glam and glitz I added Fairy Gemstones and Jewels to the snowflake centres.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Let me know if you’ve started making your Christmas cards yet.
Have a great week!
Hi Sue, A truly stunning shaker card, and the glittery bits are gorgeous.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
