Today I created a fun winter shaker card with the Right Meow stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
I started out with a piece of Gina K In the Navy cardstock. I prepped it with my powder tool for embossing and then taped down a snowflake stencil from Brutus Monroe over the top of it. I smooshed some embossing ink across the stencil onto the cardstock. I embossed the snowflakes with a clear embossing powder. I used an ink blender with some Hero Arts Unicorn white pigment ink to add a little bit of a spotlight to the middle of the paper. I also added some Black Soot Distess Oxide ink to the edges to create a nice vignette.
To create the shaker area on the card I first took two circle dies and cut a ring out of some white cardstock. I glued a piece of acetate to the ring to make a window. Next I took doubled up foam tape and placed it all the way around the ring. I added some clear large glitter to the card and closed it up with the shaker window. To give the shaker circle a snowy frosty look I took Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste and dabbed it around the edge of the circle. I love the look that this created!
I stamped the little kitty cat in the sweater from the Right Meow stamp set onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I did some very quick and easy Copic coloring on the cat and cut it out with my Scan N Cut. I glued the cat to the shaker window. I used a white gel pen to add polka dots to the sweater on the cat.
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of In the Navy cardstock with embossing ink and embossed it with a white embossing powder. I blended a little Black Soot Distress Oxide ink on the edges of the sentiment to give it a little interest. I glued the sentiment strip onto a slightly bigger piece of vellum so there is a small border around the edge. Next I popped the sentiment up on the card with foam tape. Finally, I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush to add some sparkle to the sentiment.
