I don’t know about you, but we have had plenty of the white stuff this winter . . . so here is a card celebrating the theme for Retro Rubber Blog Challenge of “Let It Snow!”
I love how easy it is to make a shaker card with the Impression Obsession Shake It windows! Fortunately for me, my chosen Snowman image by Hampton Art from 2015 was the perfect size for the shaker window. First I die cut the snowman from glossy cardstock, laid the stamp over the top and applied the acrylic block so I could get a perfect impression. He is stamped with StazOn Jet Black and then colored with Chameleon pens in OR4 Seville Orange, BR5 Bark, RD4 Crimson Red, and BK3 Deep Black. I was careful to not smear the StazOn ink when I colored in the image. Next trimmed white cardstock to 3 ¾” x 5” and die cut a circle in the lower middle for the window to poke through. Then I pressure embossed it with Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder and gently applied Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue directly to the raised snowflakes. Using an ink dauber, I added more Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue around the perimeter of the base card. The Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.I used the circle from my die cut to stamp the rest of the scene with the snow flurry and sentiment and then adhered the snowman with dimension foam adhesive. I put a bit of faux snow inside the shaker window and adhered everything together.
