Hello Maja Design friend. Jennifer Snyder here with a jolly snowman shaker card crafted using Maja Design’s classic Christmas collection called, ” Holiday In the Alps”. You can see the collection below along with the individual 12 x 12 sheets I used: Winter Night, Let it Snow, Deers.
I really love the warm vintage appeal of the collection. By the smile on the snowman’s face, I think he likes the vintage look as well. Scroll down and I’ll show you how I made the shaker card base.
Shaker Card Base Instructions:
Step 1. “Holiday in the Alps – Let it Snow” is the base of the card. Cut the paper 10in x6 in and crease in the middle at 5 inches. This card is 5in x 6in when folded.
Step 2. The top layer is “Holiday in the Alps – Winter Night” and is slightly smaller than the card base. I die cut a circle in the sheet and inked the edges for definition.
Step 3. Flip the layer over and add double sided tape around the circle. This is going to be your window so you need to make sure there are no gaps in the tape . Cut a piece of tulle (or acrylic) to cover the window. Secure in place.
Step 4. Add shaker mix to the center of the card base and glue the window layer in place securely over the shaker mix. Now you are ready to decorate.
I decorated this shaker card using Spellbinders dies and shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.
The trees were diecut from”Holiday in the Alps – Deers ” paper.
Happy crafting friends. Thank you for stopping here to visit.
