Cozy Kittens

Hello, everyone! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Christina H - so happy to have you here!  Today I am sharing a card I made for my parents to thank them for the gifts and cash I received at Christmas. I love how it turned out and can't wait to give it to them on my next visit!


It's a shaker card! I used the adorable Free Stamp of the Month from From the Heart Stamps called Cozy Kittens. I coloured them with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.  The background was created with Distress Inks (Evergreen Bough, Mermaid Lagoon, Milled Lavender), splashed with water. The snowy hills are Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes.  I adhered a number of snowflake and star sequins to the background - the silver ones are showing up as black in the photo but they are silver. For the shaker bits, I used clear vase filler because I think they look like ice crystals.

The shaker window is cut with one of my new dies - Memory Box Woodland Oval.  I die-cut it twice. For the second one, I trimmed out the trees and embossed the oval with Darice Snowflake Background (a surprise gift - thank you, Lisa - it's exactly what I wanted!). I stamped a sentiment from Newton's Nook in teal and added some Memory Box Twilight Snowflakes (these are new too) cut from white glitter paper.  To finish off the card, I adhered three sequins.
