For my shaker today, I used Winter Bunny and its coordinating die. I started out by stamping him out onto a piece of smooth white card stock, and then I die cut him out. I then added a bit of color to him with a few Copic Markers. I used R22, R24 and R29 for his scarf, R20 for the rosy in his cheeks, a little of C1 for shading around his body and E37 and E39 for his sleigh. I set him aside and die cut my red card stock frame out of some PTI Pure Poppy Card Stock using a frame from AE, and one of my circle dies from Sizzix. I also used the circle dies one size larger to cut out my background from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day 6x6 pad. I also die cut a piece of white card stock using the same circle die and the Curved Edge die from Simon Says Stamp. for my snow drift. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of my red card stock for the window and added my bunny die cut to the front for a bit of dimension. I stamped my sentiment from Joy to the Woods in VersaFine Onyx Black ink, and then I started to put my shaker together. I added some sequins and silver confetti pieces from Pretty Pink Posh in the middle of my background and even adhered a few permanently so they all wouldn't shake to the bottom. I added two layers of foam tape to my frame and adhered that to my white card base. Here is a close up for you.
I think it turned out pretty cute. The one thing to remember when making shaker cards, is to have patience!! Thank you all for stopping in!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!!
See you soon!
