50dollar_voucher_600px
I made 2 cards to share today, first up is a shaker, I do love shakers!! :-)


I used a new Snowflake Block Die to create the window panel and then backed it with acetate. I stamped some white card with snowflakes for the inside and then created the shaker using foam adhesive. 


For my next one I used a Christmas Graphic Clear Stamp Set.


 I heat embossed the background stamp with Silver Embossing Powder and then stamped the tree, coloured with Copic Markers, C1, C2, C3, and popped it up on 3D foam.  I spritzed the background with Silver Shimmer Spray, for a gorgeous bit of sparkle :-)




So now it's YOUR turn! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!

From here you need to hop along to the lovely Mandy's Blog where I know she has something FABULOUS to share :-)
