Cold Noses, Warm Heart - Winter Friend Card

 Hello Honey Bee friends! Today I'm sharing my looks-like-a-shaker-card, but it isn't card! I've used the new Polar Pals stamps and Honey Cuts and placed them in the Snow Globe A2 Shaker die on a 5" x 7" card. With the sentiments I used on the outside and inside of the card, this is just perfect to send a paper hug to that special someone!

Let's begin from the card base upwards:

  • Cut a piece of the patterned paper from the Make It Merry paper pad to 5" x 7".
  • Adhere it to an A7 card base.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Inside: Kindness set on the inside of the card in black ink.
  • Next die cut the pieces of the Snow Globe A2 Shaker Honey Cuts from 80# Neenah.
  • Die cut the frame three times and layer together with glue.
  • Die cut the base from dark gray cardstock.
  • Next stamp the sentiment from the Polar Pals stamps onto the gray base in clear embossing ink and heat set with white embossing powder. Adhere to the snow globe with glue.
  • Ink blend Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks onto the center piece of the snow globe.
  • Die cut the ink blended piece with the Snow Day Cover Plate die.
  • Then die cut two hills using the Horizon Slimline Borders Honey Cuts from white glitter cardstock.
  • Trim them with scissors to fit the bottom of the inked snow globe center piece.
  • I adhered one with glue and popped up the small hill with some foam tape.
  • I assembled the snow globe and adhered it to the card base with glue.
  • Next I stamped the polar bear and penguins from the Polar Pals set in Intense Black ink. I used a few Copic markers to color them and then cut them out with the coordinating Honey Cuts.
  • Next I die cut the Pine Trees Honey Cuts and two pieces of pine sprigs from the Lovely Layers: Winter Greenery. I used an ink blending brush to color them with Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness Distress ink.
  • I splattered the pine trees with diluted white paint and adhered all of the pieces to the snow globe with glue and foam squares.
  • I die cut the bow from the Grapevine Wreath Honey Cuts from white glitter cardstock.
  • I splattered the pine trees with diluted white paint and adhered all of the pieces to the snow globe with glue and foam squares.

I just adore the sweet Polar Pals set!! So did I succeed in making my pretend shaker card kind of look like a shaker? I think it works and hope you do too! Thank you so much for stopping by today. You are always so very appreciated!
