Shaker Card

A Christmas Story Collection has the most versatile stamps.  I made a card for someone who is stressed or ill and needs encouragement from this collection.  My first attempt at a shaker card too.  So much fun playing with Maggies.

I used Heart Swirl, Cloud and Heart Magnolia Doohickeys for the die cuts.  My image is Pixie Tilda, Snowy Roof and Old Swedish Church, all from the newest Magnolia Collection.  They are colored in Copics.  My DP is Carta Bella 6x6 pad "Beautiful Moments."

Because I did not have a die cut the size I wanted for the scene, I had to hand cut this frame with a exacto knife.  I glued Stampendous rose colored Fragments onto the outer frame to add texture. One sheet of clear plastic is what I sandwhiched in  between the frames I cut. The snow inside are tiny beads that I have had forever.  You can see them on the left bottom of the shaker scene.

Here is Pixie Tilda hanging onto the Snowy Roof, we cannot let her fall!

Two ways of looking at the cards layers and how the dimension looks from different angles.
You can see the snow in the shaker in different areas as I moved it.

Thank you for viewing my latest card.  I appreciate everyone who leaves me a comment even though we are all so busy, thank you!
