Hello everyone! I still have a couple of cards that I did for the OCC Holiday Workshop class. I don't normally do interactive cards, but Chari Moss did one that was so cute I had to give it a try. She did a shaker card with a little winter scene. I didn't have the stamp set she used, but I did have several of the same types of stamps.
You may recognize the little fox as one I colored for my Copics for cardmakers class. I still had some images that I hadn't used yet and thought this would be a perfect opportunity. The little birds are from the CTMH Perfect Fit Holidays stamp set. I didn't have any stamps of trees, so I just drew my own with a Memento tuxedo black marker and then colored them in with my copics, too. I cut all the elements out. I cut my hills with the Lawn Fawn die set, Stiched Hillside Borders out of Daisy White cardstock. The frame is from Dutch Blue cardstock. I didn't have any rectangle dies to cut my window with so I used my classic squares. I made the first pass and then moved my die down and cut the lower half. Voila! a rectangle. I robbed a stamp set of its carrier sheet for my clear acrylic sheet to put over my window to keep my shaky stuff in there. For the light blue background, I used a dauber and carefully worked some Sky ink in from the sides It's hard to tell from the picture, but it worked well for the sky. Using 3d foam tape I built my little box.
For the shaker stuff inside, I used the fallout from a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch I had. I thought it worked out perfectly. It gave me four different tiny snowflakes and three or four super tiny stars with each punch. I glued a couple of those snowflakes to my back panel so there would be snow even when everything shook down. I threw in a couple of sequins in the mix for sparkle. Here's a side view to show you the shaky stuff. (I'm sure that's a technical name :))
I thought it turned out pretty cute. Now, would I mass produce these, no I would not..lol. But they are fun for that special someone.
That's it for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by!
