Thank you so much for all the comments on my last card you are very kind.
Today's card is one that I have made for my daughter who has a fondness for penguins. It is another shaker card.
The background was made using a Clarity snowflake stamp and heat embossed it with white and silver powder. Then I inked the white paper with three shades of blue Distress ink.
I made the background for the shaker part by decorating a square of paper that would fit inside the frame. I used Stormy Skies distress ink on the top half and I heat embossed some silver stars onto it. I tore white paper to make the snow at the the bottom. I stamped and cut out the Christmas trees . Then I used some Cosmic Shimmer dries white glue to highlight details in the background and then I covered this with Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles. I left this to dry for about three hours I wanted to make sure it was very dry.
I stamped two Penguins the stamp comes from a Sizzix stamp and die set, that's why they are so neatly cut out.
I cut a piece of heat resistant acetate to fit inside the frame and I heat embossed white stars around the edge. I assembled the frame and inserted the acetate. I put a double thickness of foam pads on the back of the frame.
Once the background was dry I stuck it to the card and and popped one of the penguins on foam pads on the background quite near the middle. On top of this I put a pile of Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow and I popped the frame on top pressing firmly to make sure that it was firmly stuck. Then I gave it a shake to make sure that the glitter didn't come out. The other penguin was stuck on the outside of the frame the Christmas greeting came from the same set as the Penguin.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for leaving any comments I do appreciate them all. If you have any questions I will try to answer them.
