Winter Wonderland | Shake it Up with Gayatri

Hey folks,

This is Gayatri here today sharing with you a shaker card for the Winter Wonderland theme this month.

To be honest, I started out making a one layered card in mind. But as I started to mask and sponge and stamp, I decided I wanted some snow. So that is how I decided to turn the one layered card to a shaker cardJ

I freehand cut the snow mound using masking paper, adhere it on the card front and sponged Mustard seed distress ink in the middle then Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord distress ink on the edges. This gives the northern light illusion on the background. I then stamped the birch trees and the tree from Winter Woodland stamp set using black ink. I then adjusted the masking paper to a different level, sponged some Tumbled Glass distress ink to get snow mound then stamped the tree again and the reindeer. For the snow, I spattered some white opaque Mr. Huey. I loved it as it is but then a bit of moving snow will be awesome. So I die cut a white frame using rectangle dies, added the acetate sheet then the foam adhesives to make the shaker card. For the fillings, I added Rock Candy distress glitter and some Aquamarine and Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The white distress glitter looks like real snow.

For the sentiment I die cut “holidays” from The Big, the Bold and Merry Cutaways from gold glitter cardstock and three from white cardstock. I stacked and glued them together with the gold glitter die cut on the top. Adhere this on the card front. The Happy is from The Big,the Bold and Merry stamp set, stamped on a strip of white cardstock, trimmed and adhered using foam adhesives.
