Winter Wonderland Shaker Card....

I cannot believe how long it has been since I last posted a card. I have been busy trying to get some Christmas cards done so I can send some out this year. I felt so badly, last year not one card went out. I have seen alot of you making gorgeous shaker cards...love them! So I thought I would try my hand at making them as well. I love how it turned out. I took a favourite LOTV image and and placed some snow inside the circle, so that when you shake it up it appears to be snowing! I coloured this image with prismas and even added lots of glitter to the snowman, snow and the brim of the hats! Gotta love glitter!
Now lets hope it does not snow for a little while longer, I am not a big fan of the white stuff...love making snowy cards but not winter weather...I'm 100% a summer girl!
 
Have a wonderful day!

  4. Hi Chris,
    Nice to see you back in blogland, the days all melt into one when you are busy don't they?
    I too have been making lots of Christmas Cards (have done 88 so far, so quite pleased).
    Last year I made all my OWN cards to send out and then my Daughter took them to work and I did a Christmas Fair and they were all gone....That meant I had none to give out and ended up making them far too quickly and I got fed up. Won't fall into that trap this year.
    Your shaker card is delightful, gorgeous image.

  10. Christine, what a sweet winter scene. Love the soft colours. That shade of green on your beautiful DP's looks fab--mint green? Your colouring is as superb as ever--and now you make me want to colour a few images with coloured pencils too...LOL. And I have to start concentrating on Christmas cards too--my inventory is too low right now.
    Hugs,
