It's Cold Outside

 Happy Tuesday everyone! How is everyone surviving the polar vortex that hit our country? I live in Oklahoma and it was soooooooo cold here! We are not equipped to handle days of snowy weather and below zero temperatures. I'm so thankful we didn't lose our electricity! When I saw this Memory Box die called Stitched Circle Snowman, I was inspired to create a winter shaker card. 


Let's get started!

 Step 1: I cut my white cardstock to 3.75 x 5. Then I laid the die on top of my paper and cut it out. I love this die because it adds a stitched circle border and just cuts out the center area leaving the entire card intact.

 
Step 2: I cut a clear sheet of acetate just a tad bit smaller than my card panel (3.5 x 4.75) and glued it on the backside of the card panel.
 
 
Step 3: Now, you will want to pick out your sentiment and stamp it before adding your foam tape to the back. I forgot to add the sentiment so my pictures are out of order. If you add your foam tape before you stamp your sentiment, then just be sure to reinforce the area you are going to stamp on with extra foam tape so it provides a firm surface to stamp on. I used the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Winter Alpaca because it is definitely cold outside!
 

Step 4: Next, add your foam tape. You will want to add the foam tape close to the stitched circle border so your shaker elements stay within the circle area. Otherwise, they will fall below the snowdrift and you won't be able to see them.
 
 
Step 5: Next, cut a piece of decorative paper just a little smaller than your card panel so you can enclose your shaker pieces after you add them. 
 
 
Step 6: I framed the card with more decorative paper cut to 4 x 5.25. Then I adhered the entire thing to my card base which measure 4.25 x 5.5.
 
 
These are the products I used:
