Shaker Card

It's Saturday, and that means Sheila has a gypsy tutorial to help us learn a new technique! This week we learned to make a shaker card. Mine has a winter theme.

My card base was cut from Gypsy Wanderings, and so were my brown and red print layers. The winter church and pine trees are from Christmas solutions cartridge, and the deer are from the Wildlife Lite cartridge. It is hard to see, but the church has been colored a light blue with star dust stickles used for the glittering snow.

My shaker pieces are cut with an EK Success star punch from silver metallic paper. I think I am going to go back and add some spots to the fawns, even though they technically do not have their spots by winter. I just think it would be cute! LOL

    I really like your card a lot. I had made one yesterday, but after looking at it over & over, I think I am going to re-do it.
    Thanks so much for sharing
