Snowman Shaker Globe Card

November 19, 2020

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I am super excited to share a Shaker Card using the new winter release from Joset Designs. I absolutely love the new additions. I used Jack Frost Dies and Snow Globe dies. Below you will find the steps to create your own Snowman Shaker Globe Card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim Patterned Paper to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4” and adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. (I used ModaScrap 6×6 Unconventional Xmas).

Step 3 – Diecut Snow Globe (frame) 2 times using Fun Foam and 1 time using Glitter Cardstock. Use the frame to trim out a window in acetate and a piece using Patterned Paper. Adhere the trimmed Patterned Paper using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape and the 2 layers of Fun Foam diecuts using Kid’s Choice Glue. Add Sequins or Sprinkles to the middle and secure it with the trimmed Acetate window using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Adhere the Glitter diecut to the top using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Jack Frost in various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 5 – Diecut Snow Globe (bottom base) using Blue Cardstock. Stamp Joyful Wishes Sentiment on the Snow Globe diecut using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

This was very quick and easy to put together and it almost feels like having the real deal. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass, Moved Lawn, Cracked Pistachio.

Step 4 – Place the stencil created from Step 2 on top of the panel. I used some Pixie Spray on the backside and some Painter’s Tape to secure it. Apply Black Ink all over. Remove the stencil. This technique is called a Reverse Stencil Technique. Trim the edges and adhere to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
