52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Technique – Shaker Card

 CCT - Design For Badge

One of my favorite card techniques is making a shaker card. I don’t make them as often as I should because they require lots of time and I have issues with getting them proper glued together. I purchased a fun village snowglobe thinlite die set by Tim Holtz called Snowglobe. When I started on this project the dies looked simple enough…NOT! There seemed liked a thousand little pieces, and vs cutting them out in various coloured card stock, I decided to cut them all out in white Neenah 80lb card stock and either ink or use my Spectrum Noir markers. This “simple” card took me over three hours to make! But it did turn out very nice. I am sure if I was to do it again, I could shave at least an hour off my time. The sentiment is from MFT, and the Stitched Snowflakes are from SSS. The  sequins are from Taylored Expressions.
