Hello friends~ It's my turn to post over at the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and today I've got a snowy shaker card for you.
I started by creating a night sky background by blending some distress inks, splattered with water and then splattered with white paint.
Next I cut some Impression Obsession Mountain Landscape Layers and laid them out and added the distressed panel behind the mountains.
Then I cut the panel using a Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Rectangle Die and attached that to the front of a white A2 card base.
I cut all the parts for my card, including the Frantic Stamper Vertical Birch Trees, which I cut twice out of white card stock. I layered the two birch tree dies to add a little thickness.
Next I created the window panel for the shaker card by adding a piece of clear acetate to the largest rectangle frame from Impression Obsession All In One Rectangle Frames. I adhered the birch trees to the back of the acetate and then added 1/4" foam tape around the frame to give it dimension. (oops! Confession time... I quite often use recycled card stock.)
Some icy cold snowflakes were sprinkled onto the card front and then I adhered the window panel over the top. There's the shaker part of this card all compete!
I added the largest fir tree from Impression Obsession Fir Trees and a Dee's Distinctively Dies Deer. I rubbed a little bit of distress ink around the deer and his antlers.
And two smaller fir trees on the right side. I couldn't decide if I liked the card better with just one tree or all three.
Which one do you like better??
