Silent Shaker

Hello.  Welcome.  Shaker cards.  I am sure I have shared my disasters in the past yet I still feel required to try again.  Today I solved the problem of leaky shakers, too much fill or not enough.  I have made a shaker with nothing in it!  Genius.  Maybe?

I cut Poppy Flurry Frame die from glitter card and removed the main negative space.  Then I stuck it on a piece of acetate.  I added a blue panel that I cut with the Flurry frame die, to get a matching aperture, and Stamplorations Crazy Double stitch rectangle.  I popped it up on strips of craft foam and added a piece of blue paper embossed with silver stars.  Love the dimension the foam gives and the acetate supports all those snowflakes perfectly.   I think this one definitely looks better in the real.  But it felt a bit unfinished so........

Frosty the Snowman doodle doodle doo doo doo de.........  It's Mr Frosty from Rubber Dance.  Embossed in blue and then semi-fussy semi-die cut.  Cool........

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
