Snowman Shaker!

Hello Scrapping Cottage Fans!

It is Pam sharing with you today!  This is my last post before Christmas so I wanted to wish you all a very blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year! Let's hope 2018 will bring good health and happiness to all!

Now it is time to share my card!

I can't get enough of this adorable Sweet Snowman die so I made this last Christmas card into a fun shaker card! And actually it could be used for a winter birthday card too!

Designer Steps:

 1.  Use an A2 white card base and cut a slightly smaller piece of purple card stock then set aside.
 Next cut a piece of fun foam and designer snowflake paper 4 x 5 1/4.  Run both the foam and DP through the die cutting machine with the 3rd to the largest Cross Stitched Circle dies in the upper center of the paper and foam.  This will create the opening for the shaker card
2.  In between the foam and the DP sandwich a piece of acetate
3.  Next cut out a Stitched Scallop Circle 3rd from the largest in white.  Then lay the same Crossed Stitched Circle die you used to cut the opening onto the scalloped circle and cut.  This will make a nice frame for the opening

4.  Place a small pile of turquoise sequins and snowflake sequins onto the purple paper directly under the acetate opening
5.  Place glue on the back of the foam all around the opening and the entire back then lay it centered over the opening on the purple card stock.  Attach the white scalloped from to the front to frame the opening of the shaker
6.  Using the Sweet Snowman die cut out all of the pieces using, purple, turquoise and white card stock
 7.  Assemble the snowman I colored the branch arms and carrot nose with copic markers
 8.  Pop dot the snowman to the front of the card, add the ribbon, cotton ball on the hat and sentiment
9.  And finally attach the purple card stock to the white card base and your card is complete
