Snow Fun

Hello, everyone!  Happy February 1!  We have an extra day this month for Leap Year!  Before I get started I would like to welcome back a follower - Mrs. A - she was here previously but somehow got removed with all the Blogger changes so I am happy to see her back!  Today I am sharing another shaker card - I can't seem to get enough of these!


I used a couple of new items on this card: first the cute little Winter Bunny clear stamp from Lawn Fawn and secondly the stencil from Memory Box called Winter Snowflake Lace.  I started the card with the stencilled background using Distress Inks: Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch.  I was inspired by the stencil challenge over at Creative Chick Jenn Shurkus COOLest Card Series (Week 1).

For the snow, I added a Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border die-cut, and for the trees, I die-cut Impression Obsession Evergreen Trees in blue glitter cardstock (DCWV).  I stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps in black and added three silver snowflake sequins.  


For the shaker bits, I used vase filler from Dollarama - it's lightweight clear plastic and looks like tiny ice cubes.  I stamped the bunny and coloured it with watercolour markers and fussy-cut. The shaker frame was die-cut from white glitter cardstock (DCWV) using Waltzingmouse Stamps Scalloped Stitched Rectangles and Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.  I like how the sky and snow peek out from behind the shaker frame!

  56. I like your attitude about Feb 29--an extra day to craft. What a bummer it is a Monday though. So stupid thing about Feb 29, which happens every 4 years so it isn't like a once in a lifetime thing, is "they" (whoever they are) didn't budget to pay all the employees for this extra workday. Oh we'll be getting paid but the money will have to come from some other place (like out of the supply budget or the travel budget). Can this place get any more ridiculous?!

    Anyway, love your cute wintery shaker card. That bunny is having a great time!
