Snow Globe Shaker Card- MDUC Guest Design

Happy Sunday Everyone!

A week ago I won a guest design spot over at MDUC
I was invited to participate in a brand new challenge starting today .
The theme is Shaker Card.
We want you to make part of your card a shaker.

I have never made a shaker card before and
here's my 1st attempt of a shaker card.

The card measures 5.5"(H) x 7"(W) x 1.5"(D).
I made a snow globe card with one side a shaker 
and the other side a shadow box.

The shaker is 1/2" deep. I stamped and water colored 
Magnolia Winter Night background, and added
some FlowerSoft white snow flakes in
between the window sheet 
and the background.

I water colored Edwin on Christmas Eve.
I used various die cuts, snowflake punch-outs, pom pom ribbon,
pearls, and blings to complete the scene.

When you turn the snow globe around, 
it shows a shadow box Christmas ornament winter scene 
with Edwin on sled and Tilda Santa's Little Helper.
I colored Edwin and Tilda with Copic markers.

I added a few accordion folds to join the 2 sides together.
The card can then be fold flat for mailing. 

DPs are from Magnolia and Basic Grey.
Dies and punches are from Magnolia, Memory Box, 
Tim Holtz, Spellbinder, and Martha Stewart.

I had fun making this card and will make a few more,
probably only one side though :^)

Thanks very much for stopping by. 
Hope you will hop over to MDUC to see all the wonderful
DT creations and join in the fun!


I wish to enter this creation in the following challenges:
