snowflake shaker card




The theme at Wednesday Stamper is snowflakes. I had it in my head to make a snowflake shaker card, so I had a go. However, I haven't made a shaker card in years and I really stuggled to line up the back, still I guess I'd get it with practise. I've used stamps from Inka, and my fiskars texture plate has been in use again.

I'm including a close up as the main picture doesn't capture the sparkle (darn these dark evenings!)

  11. I've never made a shaker card, you certainly have inspired me with this beauty. Everything about it is just so lovely, the glimmer on her fur trim and muff is the nicest touch too! What a cutie she is!
