Ornament Shaped Winter Shaker Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #185)

Hello everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #185, Photo InspirationCreate anything inspired by a photo below.

I was inspired by a beautiful winter frozen scene and created this Ornament Shaped Winter Shaker Card.

To make this card I used gorgeous dies from Create a Smile 'Frosty Fun' kit.

die cut an ornament in a white cardstock paper. I blended sky with Distress Inks and after drying coated it with Clear Wink of Stella. I did same with a hanger.

I used negative part of a die-cut ornament as a stencil. I traced ornament shape twice on the white cardstock paper and cut them out. I used them as a card base.

I glued all parts of the ornament die-cut on the ornament shaped base.

I didn't want to use foam for my shaker card, so I die cut 10 more ornaments in the white cardstock paper and used only frames (rest I left for other projects). I glued 9 frames together and glued them on the ornament. I glued acrylic sheet on a last frame to get a window, filled the card with shaker elements and glued the window on the ornament.

As shaker elements I used snowflake die-cuts and tinny die cut leftovers from my previous projects. :o)

Lastly, I connected the ornament shaker and the ornament shape together with a long fastener and glued the hanger on the top of the ornament. Clear Wink of Stella over the hanger and my shaker card was finished.
