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.
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 -
