Santa’s snowed in

Happy Friday everyone. I really hope that your weeks have been great. Today I’m bringing you a cute little shaker card. I really love this card as its is filled with faux snow which is so realistic. Santa has been snowed in, so he’s hiking a ride to help him deliver the presents.

To begin with I took a card, that when folded measured 4.75” x 3,75”. I then cut out the largest of the scalloped stitched rectangles and cut it out in red card.  From this I cut out the centre of the card with the stitched rectangle measuring  3,5” x 2.5”. I overlayed a piece of acetate behind the red Frame and attached 2mm foam pads all the way around the edge to give me some lift for my shaker card. I also cut a navy piece of card the same size of the rectangle I cut into the centre of the card, so 3.5” x 2.5”.

Next I took some strips of the slimline clouds and overlayed these into my design. It’s easy to get these the right size to fit into the design by using the same size rectangle as you’d did to cut out the centre of the picture

Next I die cut Santa, his sleigh and a present from the Special ‘Delivery’ die set and assembled over the snowy hills. I then put some of the faux snow onto the card before layering over the red rectangle. I used the joy sentiment from the ‘High Flying Snowman’.  So give the card a shake and the fun begins.

I just wanted to share a fun little make with your Christmas table in mind. This cute little place card is made with my favourite gingerbread die. When folded the card measures 3.5” x 2.5” and I have used the 2” stitched circle to place in the middle of the card. You can use you stitched rectangles to write or print names

I wish you all the very best for the weekend ahead and remember to take some time to craft. I will be back with you on Tuesday
