Spectacular Snowflake

Oohlala the new Holiday release is here!  You can check out the marvelous catalog HERE on the Memory Box site.  You're going to love all of the deliciousness Dave and his crew have come up with this release.  But of course his designs are always drool inducing!

I used the amazing new snowflake die called Spectacular Snowflake (and it is definitely spectacular!) and created a shaker card.  I wanted to use oodles of sequins, glitter and some prills in the "stuffing" so doubled up on the foam tape.  To create the blue/silver paper, pull out some of the distress inks....I used Salty Ocean and Silver Distress ink sprays and spritz those colors on my craft mat and then spritzed a couple of times with water.  I dragged my cardstock through the inks/waters to create the very random water colored look.

I laid the card flat for this picture so you could see the "stuffing" of the shaker card and added some sequins around the snowflake for additional texture.  You can also see a little bit of the shimmer from the Silver distress inks in this picture as well.

For those who are local, this will be one of the cards in the August 1 Christmas card class.  If you need your shaker card fix prior to this date, we'll be playing with even more of the new release dies on July 18th when we will be making 3 shaker cards!

Thanks for swinging by today and see you soon!
