Crafty Calendar Challenges December Challenge

Good morning all, two posts in a week I must be on a roll lol. 

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar Challenges and this month the challenge is 'Cold & Frosty'

I decided to make a snow globe shaker card, I remember seeing a couple of these last year using stamped images and thought my god children would love one.

 I used the 'Carollers Come Singing' cutting file from Creative Kuts, I made the snow globe myself in SCAL 2 and the Merry Christmas was drawn with my Cricut using a SCAL 2 font. On the purple card at the bottom I stamped some different snowflake stamps with a Ranger Embossing Distress Ink Pad and then heat embossed them with Ranger Clear Distress Embossing Powder.




Supplies:-
A5 Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Card Stock - Bazzill
Designer Papers - DCWV (I think)
Stamps - Various from Crafty Sentiment 'Sentiments'
Cutting File - Creative Kuts 'Carollers Come Singing'
Snow - Baker Ross 'Snow Shaker'
Ribbon - Anita's
Gems & I-Rock - Imaginisce
Embossing Ink & Powder - Ranger 'Distress' Range.

By The Cute & Girly - Let It Snow
Creatalicious - Christmas with Sparkle
Joanna Sheen - Christmas Wishes
