A Shaker Card For My Christmas Stash

I know that I have been a little remiss this week with my posting and I apologise, but I have been cataloguing my cling stamps, all the clear ones are up to date now, most of the dies are done and I have started on my cling stamps (mostly SU).

However, I bought a 'Simply Cards & Papercraft' magazine and it had a lovely stamp set and matching embossing folder that came with it and I felt that the snow-globe was crying out to be made into a shaker.

I stamped the snow-globe on to a panel of  card-stock to match my base card, cut a hole with a circle die, coloured the snow-globe base, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set and spread some 'sparkle gel' through a SSS 'Falling Snow' stencil.

Meanwhile, whilst the sparkle gel was drying, (disappointingly, not very sparkly, it turns out) I made up my shaker.  I used some chunky iridescent glitter that I have by popping it into a small see-through bag and stuck that down behind the window with scotch tape.

Finally, I mounted the whole thing on to my base card with foam tape.  Here it is.


That's it for me today, my dear, crafty friends.  Thank you for your visit and if you left a little love, thank you, it's most appreciated and I will reciprocate!  Have a lovely day!  Hazel xx
