Stitched Circle Cabin Shaker Card

 Happy Tuesday everyone! It's Rosie here today showing how I created this fun shaker card. Shaker cards are quite the eye candy and your recipient will love this card! I kept it mostly white for the snow effect...only adding color to certain elements. 

Let's get started!

Step 1: I cut white cardstock using the Stitched Circle Cabin Die. Be sure to keep the cabin cut-outs (front and side of cabin).

Step 2: My card base is 4.25 x 5.5. The blue cardstock is 4 x 5.25, and I trimmed the cabin cardstock to 3.75 x 5. I also cut a blue circle and clear acetate circle a little bigger than the cabin die-cut (about 3.5).

Step 3: I traced around the cabin onto scrap paper, and then colored it yellow. I fussy cut the cabin out slightly smaller than my outline.

Step 4: I colored the cabin cut-out pieces using Copic Markers to look like logs (E42, E44, E77). I used a black pen to draw in a door.

Step 5. I glued the yellow scrap piece on the backside of the cabin so the yellow showed through the die-cut.

Step 6: Then I glued the cabin pieces on top of the yellow so it would look like lights were on inside the cabin. If you want a sentiment on the front of your card, this is the point you want to stamp it (I forgot to take a picture of that step) before you add foam tape to the back. I stamped LET IT SNOW from the Lawn Fawn Snow Cool Stamps.

Step 7: Next, I flipped the panel over and glued the acetate to the back side of the cabin. I cut pieces of foam tape and placed it around the acetate. I didn't have any snowflake shaker elements, but I did have this bottle of sugar sprinkles so I decided to use them!

 Step 8: I filled in the open area with the snowflake sugar sprinkles, and pulled out any ones that were broken.

Step 9: I then pulled off the adhesive backing on the foam tape around the circle and placed the blue die-cut circle on top to seal the shaker. Next, I added more foam tape on the white cardstock.

Step 10: I assembled the card by placing the shaker panel on top of the blue cardstock. Then I used Scor-tape to adhere the blue cardstock to the card base.

FUN, right?! I hope this inspires you to create your own shaker cards!
