Shaker in the snow

I've been trying out shaker cards, and I made this Christmas version.
For the shaker area, I started by diecutting a snowflake. I took the negative leftover, cut it in a circle, and that is the bottom of the shaker area.  I used a circle of fun foam to create the "box."  It has blue and silver sequins in it, covered by a circle of acetate framed with a navy scalloped circle. (You know that saying about mistakes being an excuse to embellish? Yeah, I had a glue problem so I added the snowflake brad.)
The snowflake-printed strip is actually a sample of wrapping paper (stashed away since some long-ago PTA wrapping paper drive), and the silver paper behind it is recycled from some envelope. So, it's a blue card and a "green" card.

  2. I like how you fixed your glue mistake. I think your card was trying to say that it needed something there. A snow themed shaker card is a great idea! Wonderful card!

  3. A great creation! I have also only recently started with shaker cards and got really hooked... and see now that there are other techniques to do this as well.
