Small Die of the Month Membership  

This jolly snowman shaker card was crafted  using Maja Design's classic Christmas collection called, " Holiday in  the Alps". The collection is a unique collection of traditional Christmas  images and colors, mixed with a set of traditional winter frosty  colors and images.  This allows the versatility to use the paper to  create wonderful DIY Christmas cards and then continue to enjoy the  collection to send winter greetings as the new year starts. 

 

I really love the warm vintage appeal to the  collection.  By the smile on the snowman's face, I think he likes the  vintage look as well.

  

Instructions for Making  the Shaker Card Base

  

 Here's a quick set of DIY instructions  to help you make your own shaker card base.  

Step 1. "Maja Design -Holiday in the Alps- Let it Snow 12x12" 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 "Maja Design -Holiday in the Alps- Winter Night 12x12"and is slightly smaller than the card base.   The delicate scalloped  circle was die cut using Spellbinders Elegant Twist Circles Die from the  Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken (sized 4.25in x 4.25in).

 

The edges of the top layer piece were inked  with Walnut Distress Ink for definition.

Step 3.  Flip  the layer over and add double sided tape to the back of the paper  making sure the circle will be enclosed. This is going to be your window so you  need to make sure there are no gaps in the tape.  

Step 4. Cut a piece of tulle (or acrylic) to cover the window.  Secure in place.

  

Step 5.  Add shaker mix to the center of the card base and tape/glue the  window layer in place securely over the shaker mix.   Now you are  ready to decorate.

There's Magic in the  Shaker Mix 

 

OK - there really isn't magic in the mix- but there is FUN in the shaker mix. 

This card is filled with Buttons Galore's December Dream Sparkletz shaker  mix - a collection of iridescent snowflake shaped sequins.  The snowflake  sequins from the shaker mix also make amazing finishing accents on the card for  an added bit of snowy glitz.  

Look how happy  Frankie the snowman is?  His smile shakes off on everyone who sees  him.  

Thank you for stopping here today.  Your  time is valuable so I appreciate it greatly.
