Winter Deer Scene Shaker

Hello, everyone! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome a new Bloglovin' follower - Kim Venezia - thanks for joining me! Today I'm sharing a winter scene shaker card that I made with all dies, no stamping.  Something a little different for me!


I have been wanting to use my new Paper Temptress cardstock that I won (thank you, Patricia!). It's called Retro Silver Lustre and it is so gorgeous and lush!  I also wanted to use my new Memory Box Woodland Oval again, as well as my new Joycraft Winter word die that I won (thank you, Teresa!).

Inspiration came from the sketch over at Tuesday Throwdown:



I started with the background and inked the sky with Tumbled Glass, Evergreen Bough, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks and then spritzed with water to add some texture. The snowbanks were die-cut with Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes, and I added a small deer from Impression Obsession. I adhered a number of silver snowflake and star sequins and filled the shaker with tiny silver stars.

On the front of the card, I added Memory Box Leaping Deer in lieu of the circle element of the sketch. Instead of a banner, I added the Winter word, which I die-cut twice to provide some depth. I added three die-cut Memory Box Twilight Snowflakes at the top right corner according to the sketch. Some Crafty Ribbons Swiss Dots ribbon was added along the bottom and a bow at the top. I finished off the card with some aqua sequins, silver snowflake sequins, and silver star sequins.


Inspiration also came from the Looking Forward/Looking Back challenge over at the UnstampaBelles. Here in Canada, winter seems to last forever. So I am looking forward to a few more months of Winter, but I'm also looking back to the previous few months of Winter. As for the twist of Window or Mirror, please see the window of the shaker card.

Great use of dies and a super winery scene Kitty.

I think, well hope as I am leaving the message here that it is you who entered PB&M from Slipcoast, so just wanted to apologise that I've not commented but don't subscribe to it (takes me all my time keeping up with blogs etc) but hopefully one or other of the team have visited you there.

I just LOOOOOOVE IT!!! You have made really a FABULOUS winter scene!!! Your shaker is so creative and such a striking 3D effect it has!! The color combo is just adorable and what to say on the super-sweet deers?? They give a fabulous feel of reality, you have founded the perfect position for both them!! The oval aperture with the trees is just magic with these deers and the stitched snowbanks!! And love really very much the dotted lace and bow, they are adorable and match perfectly with the wonderful sponged background and the double-colour sentiment!! And also with the sequins!! The snowflakes are a fabulous touch!!
... I can't stop looking at your shaker card!!!! It's too much beautiful, my friend!! :D You are the queen of shaker cards!!
