I first planned out the shaker portion of the card, used a 3.5" circle die to cut two circles, one from acetate and the second from heavy weight card stock. Stamped the trees with GKD Christmas Pine ink and colored with Copic YG61 and added "snow" with a white pigment ink pen. The background is colored with Copic markers, I really didn't want to have to mask the trees and then added snow with the white pen. I placed two-face foam tape around the perimeter of this circle following Kristina's instructions, added snowflake sequins and crystal glitter then adhered the acetate circle. Yay, it worked!
Once the hard part (for me) was done, I stamped the Holiday Frame and snow globe base using my MISTI (works every time). Cut the opening, stamped the snowflakes and greeting, colored the base and outline with Spectrum Noir markers and then attached the shaker part. After adding the ribbon I adhered the whole thing onto GKD Heavy Base Weight White cardstock. Of course I had to add just a bit of bling and snowflake sequins.
I love how this card came out, my thanks to Kristina's easy instructions, and I hope you like it too. I'm entering this card: StampTV December Release Challenge and the Mod Squad Challenge.
