Cuttlebug Winter House Shaker card
Hi and welcome to my Blog :-)
I'm still having fun with my "frame" cards and this particular card is a Shaker Card and is another entry in the Splitcoaststampers Flowersoft FSC14 Sprinkle Challenge of "Winter Wonderland".
I used the now-retired Cuttlebug embossing folder: Winter House - which I have recently seen on EBay go at Auction in Australia for more than $50 - eek!! If you Google it, you might be lucky enough to find one somewhere!
I diecut a circle with my Spellbinder Circle Nesties, then used the larger Snowflakes embossing folder from the Cuttlebug Winter Wonderland set, then punched some icicles with my Martha Stewart Icicles edge punch and attached them underneath. I know that you can't really tell by the photo, but there is some clear acetate over the Winter House image and I added some Polar White Flowersoft inside (approximately 1 teaspoon) which of course is the "Shaker" part of the card..
There is approximately 3mm thick foam tape between the Snowflakes embossing and the Winter House embossing - if you have too small a gap, the "shaker" parts get stuck underneath the acetate and don't move around freely.
I diecut some snowflakes and added Kaiser Island Lagoon Rhinestones and when I glued them to the front, I bent the edges of the snowflakes up slightly so they would stand out a bit better against the Snowflakes embossing.
This panel was then adhered to Bazzill Bling Icey Teal cardstock (I don't know the proper colour name - I am just "guessing"!), then onto more white cardstock I love how the Bazzill Bling cardstock shimmers in the light. Lastly, I added the ribbon in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy.
Thanks again for stopping by!
