Winter Snow Shaker Card

Another first for me.  I'll tell you, I'm starting this new year with gusto trying things I've never done before because I thought they would be too much trouble.

We recently had snow in Texas.  I survived the Texas Winter - January 6-8, 2017




This focal image is Cricut cut is Aspen Trees from the Dimensional Paper Art Cartridge
I lined the back of the trees with a medium blue and then chalked a light blue over the lower half of the focal point.

This shaker card material requirements:

  • White card stock
  • Dark Blue card stock
  • Medium Blue card stock
  • Light Blue card stock
  • clear transparency/acetate sheet
  • foam tape
  • high-tack, double-sided tape

  • Aspen Trees Image
  • turquoise ink
  • chunky glitter
  • snowflakes

My outer square was lawn fawn thin die cuts in successive sizes

I progressively measure inward to create each frame and then sewed the frames together Cut window/acetate sheet slightly smaller than outside dimensions of frame. Line frame with high-tack, double-sided tape and peel release liner from tape. Place window sheet onto back of frame and burnish well.



I then added a white dot at each 5th stitch and began adding the outer snowflakes.




 Inside of the card all ready for a sentiment like:  "Baby it's cold outside" or "Brrrr" or "Let It Snow."


This shaker card was easier to make than I thought it was going to be.  I'm glad I did one!
