Let it Snow

Today I tried a different method of constructing the well for this shaker card. Instead of using foam tape I cut out several layers of scrap card with a circle aperture the same size as that in the snowflake die by Sara Signature dies. I stacked and adhered them to the acetate behind the snowflake panel. I tried this for a couple of reasons, 1) to prevent the occurrence of the sequins sticking to the edges of the foam tape and 2) to make it easier to surround the circle to make a well. (Using small dimensional pads to surround a circle is a real pain!)
The backdrop was brushed with some Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Ink and then splashed with water and dabbed dry to remove some of the colour. This wasn't quite enough, so I spritzed a splatter stamp with water and stamped with that  then dabbed with paper towel to remove a little more colour.
The sentiment by Stamplorations was stacked 3 times.

  1. Excellent idea! I have avoided making shaker cards because I struggle with that foam tape. Perhaps your method will work better. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Great card Chrissie. Love the stacked die cuts to create the well - and the reasons for doing that. Thank you for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge xx Lynda/Loopyloo DT

  3. Such a gorgeous card, Chrissy! Love your idea. Thank you for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge. xx Wilma

  4. Absolutely amazing idea! I stopped making shaker cards for those same reasons. Beautiful die-cut and your technique for the background actually looks like you used velum, love it! So glad you joined us for our Snowflake Challenge at Christmas 24!
