Shaker card with mailbox

Hi, Janja here!

Christmas time is almost here. In Slovenia we don't have any snow yet, and the weather forecast is not promising us a white Christmas. Never mind, today I will take care of snow :).

For the card we need:
- CottageCutz dies: woodland mailbox, forest trees, stitched wide rectangle frame set (the largest die from set)
- kraft card base: 4.1 x 5.3" (10,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- white and colored cardstock
- glitter
- white embossing powder
- Distress ink: Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Vintage Photo, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Black Soot

Prepare a card base from kraft cardstock. Cut out a frame from white cardstock with a frame die and a sheet of transparent foil in the frame size.

Coat the frame with glue and sprinkle it with glitter.

On kraft base stamp "Warm Wishes" and treat it with hot embossing technique. Use white powder.
Glue transparent foil to the back of the frame, and fasten across it self-adhesive foam tape. Finally, add snowflakes and attach the base card to the frame.

From colored cardstock cut out all the elements for the mailbox and spruces. Shadow them with Distress inks.

To finish the card, fix mailbox with gifts and spruces as shown using foam adhesive pads.

Another view to the snow-covered card, after we shake it.

I wish you a Merry Christmas.

Thank you for coming over and see you next Tuesday.
