Woodware - Shaker Cards

This weeks challenge at Woodware is to make a shaker card. I have never actually made one of these before. So this was definitely a challenge, which I really quite enjoyed.
For my main image I chose this gorgeous Stampendous stamp CRP169 "Snow Bird". I bought this a while ago and had intended to use it for some Christmas cards, but forgot I had it. So when I found it the other day whilst looking for something else I thought it would be perfect for my shaker card!!

This is such a cute design and I am sure it will be well used in the future. So here is my shaker card :

 I decided to make mine into an easel card. I stamped some swirling snowflakes onto the acetate that I used to create the front of the shaker component.

To carry one the theme of snow I used some chunky white and shabby blue Frantage embossing powder for the shaker bits!. I also threw in a bit of multi-crystal glitter for a bit of sparkle. 

I stamped the bird lightly onto the oval inside as a place to write your birthday message. And I stamped the branch and berries from the main stamp to the strip that supports the easel card.

There are some good ideas for other shaker cards on the Woodware blog this week so be sure to check them out. 


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate them.
