A little of everything....Shaker Card style!

 So you ever have something in your mind you would love to create but don't know quite were to start. Well for me it all started with the love of the shaker cards....then the step card....followed by some dimensional stuff! And here it is my final idea.
 I used distress inks to colour my background image from Penny Black called, Village Christmas. Thank-you Leila for letting me play around with your stamp! I used this background stamp to create the shaker part of the card. I hope you can see all the glitter snow in between the accetate and the coloured image!
I then added a snowman all glittered up and stamped my sentiment from the Whimsey stamps set called Tis the Season. I bought that at One Crazy Stamper. They have a wonderful online store if you can't get to the brick and mortar store! I also used the Marianne Creatables tree die and the Memory Box Whimsical Flourish die. Oh you gotta love dies!!!!

Oh you have got to love creating Christmas cards ....yes, the glitter and the all the adorable images you can play along with!
