Jolly penguins shaker card

Hi, Janja here!

Nice hot weather inspired me to create a shaker card with a winter scene.

- CottageCutz dies: Jolly Penguin, Deer & Forest Border, Snowman w/ Lamp Post, Circle Set
- white card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- white cardstock: 4.72 x 4.72" (12 x 12 cm)
- white cardstock: 4.5 x 4.5" (11,4 x 11,4 cm)
- fun foam: 4,3 x 4,3" (11 x 11 cm)
- white and colored cardstock
- transparent foil: 4,3 x 4,3" (11 x 11 cm)
- Cosmic shimmer glitter jewels - iced snow
- Distress Oxide - Broken China

Usually I use a watercolor paper for coloring, but this time I colored on a white cardstock. I also used it for other cutouts.

While we wait for the color to dry, cut out cute penguins from white and colored cardstock.

Cut out deer and spruces of white cardstock twice. Use one cut out entirely, and from the other cut off spruces with scissors. Also cut out deer from brown cardstock.
On the bottom edge add a white cardstock.

Borrow three snowy hills from snowman :).

Cut a hole in a white cardstock with an 8th die in a row from the middle of a set. Do the same with fun foam.

We begin by assembling the card as shown.

Fasten a fun foam on to blue background. Add some glitter in to the opening and cover it with a transparent foil.
Now we only have to fix a white cardstock with a deer and penguins.

Completed card.

I hope you like it and thank you for coming over.
