This card was actually inspired by a comment from one of my customers back in October. She wanted to make a snowglobe card. She purchased the new 1 3/4" Circle punch and the Word Window for the base of the snowglobe. As soon as I saw the Winter Post stamp set…I just KNEW I had to make a snowglobe shaker-card. So here it is with some tips. This was one of the Christmas-Card-of-the-Month Cards from last month…sorry if you missed it. I also have demonstrated this at my November Workshops.
I used Old Olive, Night of Navy, Basic Black and an empty jumbo wheel cartridge with Whisper White Craft re-fill ink, Chunky Sprinkles Glitter and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter in the shaker. The Jumbo Wheel is Snow. Watercolor or Blender Pen the Skaters on Watercolor Paper or Confetti White Paper.
Here is a detail of the shaker part. I used the Key Tag punched halfway for the base of the Snowglobe.
The notched edges of the Stampin' Dimensionals are perfect for curving around edges. (I use 3M Foam Tape for straight shakers.) Here is how I made the Shaker…we learned this at the Regional Seminar in Kansas City, put on by Stampin' Up! It is a training and stamping day with the company. Shelli was there and one of the presentations made a shaker card this way. See below…I have been hording my un-used edges for five years. I just figured out I should trim them off the empty sheets and place them in a stamp set storage box. A tip from me to you!
Here is how I store my Stampin' Dimensionals.
