I decided to create a winter themed shaker card for this blog hop using the Snow Kissed stamp set from Sunny Studios. I looove this set so much, I think the images are super cute and so fun to color! To create this card I first die cut a circle out of white card. I then stamped this fun sentiment onto the bottom and heat embossed that with silver embossing powder. To create the shaker aspect of this card I used the fuse tool (this was my first time, and it was super easy!) I laid down the two fusables clear sheets and laid the circle die that I used to cut the circle over top. I proceeded to press the tool down around the outside of the die until I was almost all the way around. I then filled the little pocket with various sequins, some from Pretty Pink Posh and others from Simon Says Stamp. I then sealed up the pocket with the fuse tool.  Snowflake sneak peekI then stamped, colored and die cut the little penguin, And also die cut a little snowy hill out of white glitter paper. To assemble the card I put the white hill behind the window and stuck that in place, I then adhered the shaker pocket behind that using some liquid adhesive. I then stuck some white card behind that. The whole piece was then mounted onto a card base with some patterned paper on top. To finish the card, I placed the penguin at the bottom of the shaker panel and popped him up with some foam adhesive.Thanks snow much tag

As a little bonus I made a little gift tag to coordinate with my card, using a similar looking penguin from the Bundled Up stamp set. I hope you enjoyed the card and tag! Please continue to hop along to see what all the other talented designers have created! The next stop on the hop is Chitra Nair.

    These penguin projects are SO CUTE! The saying that “Snowflakes are kisses from Heaven” is just so sweet! And yes, they really feel that way! (Except in a blizzard when the snow is beating against your face! haha)
    Thanks for the Winter Wonderful inspirations!
