Cottage in the Snow Shaker Easel Card

I'm just popping by to quickly share a card with you and remind you that the Delicious Doodles first ever challenge starts on Friday. Please do come and join us as it's going to be a complete blast with plenty of prizes and surprises! If you've not already been to visit the challenge blog, pop over there as Teri is giving away five digi images to one lucky follower once we reach the magic 100 (at the time of writing this post there are 94, so it won't be long to wait).

The other day I made my first ever shaker card (which I'll share with you in next few days), and loved it! For some reason it took me back to being a child again and playing with a snowglobe that only came out at Christmas. It also sparked a few ideas in my head for other cards and images, this being one of them.


The image is from Delicious Doodles Shop and has been coloured with Promarkers. The wood on the doors and windows has been varnished with Glossy Accents and the snow has been given some shimmer with a combination of Picket Fence and Stardust Stickles. I've punched some snowflakes and then glittered them for the shaker contents.


The easel base and shaker frame have been created with my nesties and then embossed with a Sizzix Texturz Plate. The edges of the card have been inked with silver. The snowflake embellishment has been cut with a Marianne Creatables die. The sentiment is from Papermania.



Thanks for stopping by

  3. Very pretty card, however as it is not a birthday easel card, it doesn't not qualify for Party Time Tuesdays. We hope you will join us again in the future.
