Christmas in July Snow Globe Shaker Card

Hello crafty  friends.  I'm here to present a snow globe shaker card celebrating  Christmas in July using one of Maja Design's wonderful Christmas collections, Holiday in the Alps.

 

Outside, it's hot enough to melt a snowman in minutes, but inside my craft table is filled with frosty papers and smiling snowmen.  I love it!

Holiday in the Alps is a beautiful classic Christmas collection with a vintage look.

Here are the papers used on this snowman snow globe shaker card:

Winter Ephemera - Side A and B

Snowmen - Side B

Snowflakes

The Shaker

The chipboard snow globe shaker is from Creative Embellishments.  It's easy to assemble and comes with the acrylic window -which makes me smile because I don't have to scrounge for acrylic like I do when I make my own shakers.

 

The best glue to use when assembling the shakers is one with a small tip to control the amount of glue.

My favorite glue to use on shakers is Nuvo - Deluxe Adhesive because it dries clear, has a strong bond, dries fast, and has a small nozzle.

 

The chipboard has been painted with white acrylic paint then topped with Stamperia's Glamour Gelin Sparkling White. It dries with a beautiful shimmering sheen.  The photos do not do this justice because I can't capture the beauty and shimmer effect.  But it's exactly what you want if you are creating a winter wonderland.

Every shaker needs fabulous sequin shaker mix and  is filled with Buttons Galore and More's newly released Polar Wind DooDadz shaker mix. This mix is glittery and shimmery like fresh fallen snow.  Visit Buttons Galore to see the entire DooDadz collection.
