Snowglobe Shaker


Over at The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up it is the midway point of our challenge. That means it is the turn of the Merry Maidens to share some more fabulous Christmas cards.


The challenge theme is any Christmas Card or other December holiday. The lucky winner's prize is any 2 Winter or Christmas paper packs from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles

If you link up 2 or more cards to our challenge you will get the free Snowflake & Bokeh digital paper sent to you that our intrepid leader Lisa of Decosse's Dynamite Doodles has designed. 



This card features 2 of my favourite Christmas subjects Snowmen and snowflakes.

The background paper is from the Welcome to the North Pole. This has been sized to 5.5" square to suit a 6" card base. It has been printed on glossy photo paper.


The snowman inside the snowglobe is a pre-coloured Doodle from Under The Tree. I am fortunate to be on the Creative Team for Kate Hadfield Designs and have access to so many fabulous images. They are a perfect compliment to Lisa's papers too.



Kate's Doodles are available pre-coloured and as digital stamp packs so perfect for many applications such as scrapbooking, journalling, card making and also a lot of teachers use them.




I had already printed the image and added some glitter glue to the snowflakes in the background. I was given some Sizzix goodies and amongst them was some shaker domes. By some complete fluke the circles were the exact size I needed to fit the dome. I added some seed beads with a white and silver core. I die cut a circle in the blue card I had used to mat the paper to cover where the edges of the dome stick to the image. The final touch was then to add a silver peel off sticker.

It was going to be a lovely card to start off with but the shaker section makes it so much more special. I must admit I can't stop playing with it

I do hope you will take part in our challenge and look forward to seeing your creations.

  8. You've created a beautiful Christmas/winter card. I've never done shaker cards as I'm a bit intimidated by them (they look so complicated), but I do enjoy looking at them, and your snowglobe is such a lovely motif. The little snowman looks so happy in his winter bubble, and I love the dark background paper with snowflakes that complements the winter feeling. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

    Hugs, Veronika
