A Christmas Shaker Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? I am into my second week of invigilating. It is really strange getting up early in the morning. It will be nice to have a bit of extra money for some treats at Christmas. This time last year I had no money at all coming in and I felt very odd buying my husband Christmas presents with his money it didn't seem right. Now I have a tiny pension and the invigilating money. So he will have a good present this year.

I was going through my files and I found a Christmas  card that hadn't been blogged.

I do like making Shaker Cards. The Snow Globe die from Creative expressions works so well when teamed with treat cups. Don't forget to look at your packaging though as I have found some that will work with the die as well. I used the Falling Snow Embossing folder to add texture to the background paper. 

I created the scene inside with dies. The Sky was cut with the Christmas Night Sky die from Creative Expressions and I used the Christmas Cottage Scenes dies as well. The Snowman was made with a Crafter's Companion die that came with the Advent Calendar last year. (I have treated myself to an Advent Calendar this year.) The snow was created with small white beads. 

This is a Creative Expressions die. I used Pebeo Gilding was on the sentiment and the Snow Globe. 

These types of cards are always popular. I am not sure who will get this one yet. 

I would like to enter the following Challenges:

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Happy Crafitng

Your shaker card is gorgeous Jackie, love your choice of beads for the filling. That would also make a very pleasant noise when shaken. The little snowman in the "globe" is adorable and I really like your colour choices.
Good luck with the remaining time you have supervising the exams, it will be nice to have a little extra cash in your pocket come Christmastime!

Your card looks great. For some reason I've never made a snowglobe card with the globe in black. I'll have to try it next time instead of my usual white, gold or silver, because it is quite striking in black.
