Snowman Shaker Card with Memory Box



Hello everyone!  I hope your weekend is going well so far.  Today I wanted to share another shaker card I made using the Snowman Collage die by Memory Box.  As you guys know I was bitten by the shaker bug and as soon as I saw this guy I knew it would be perfect as a shaker.  

Let me show you how I made this guy - 

I started with a top folding A2 card base of red shimmer cardstock.  I cut a piece of white cardstock, 4" x 5.25", and centered the whole die on the cardstock and cut it out.  I love the way this die is packaged because you don't need to cut all the pieces apart and you have less chance of losing any of the dies.

  
I then went back and cut all the little pieces using black, green, orange, and red cardstock -   


and assembled the snowman by gluing down the pieces.  


Then I cut a piece of acetate and glued it behind the snowman.  You do not want your little sequins and beads falling out.  


I turned it over and stamped my sentiment.  


Then I went and adhered double sided foam tape all around the window part so that none of the sequins and beads will leak out of the shaker card.


I rubbed the inside acetate and around the sides of the foam tape with my anti-static bag that I use when embossing. This removes the static and will allow your sequins and beads to not stick to the tape.  Then I slowly added sequins and micro beads on top of the acetate.


The last thing I did was to slowly remove the tape backing and then I placed my card base down on top and rubbed well to make sure the tape stuck well.  I also cut a piece of white cardstock, 4" x 5.25" and adhered it to the inside so I had somewhere to write.  

Done!


I hope you enjoyed this card.  This snowman shaker card is great, not just for a Christmas card, but for as an all around holiday card.  Let me know what you think!  Until next time - 

Hugs from Brasil -
