Winter Shaker Card feat Gerda Steiner Designs

Hi everyone! It's Laura here and today I am back with a post and a video in which I will show you how to create a snow globe shaker card. I chose the sentiment so that this could be a card good for any occasion, but you can easily switch that and turn this into a winter birthday card, for example.

The stamp set I used today is the Gerda Steiner Designs Snowman Friends stamp set.
I stamped the images on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black ink and I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers. There are also coordinating dies available for this set, and I will link them down below in case you are interested. I don't have them, though, so I cut the images with my EK success Cutterbee scissors.
Here is a color chart for you as a reference, in case you'd like to reproduce this card.

I then moved on to the shaker. I die cut some white cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and created an opening with the Lawn Fawn Ready Set Snow Shaker Add-on dies. Before die cutting the shaker window I adhered a strip of patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter paper pad.

I then used more dies from the dies in Ready Set Snow Shaker Add-on set and patterned papers by Lawn Fawn to create the snow globe. For the base of the snow globe I used papers from the Knock on Wood paper pad, and for the sky I used the Beachside paper pad. All the other elements are die cut from white cardstock.
To add interest to the snow hill, I added some shading with a Ranger Blending Brush. I took the brush that I normally used for my blue Distress Oxides and used whatever ink was left on the bristles to shade the bottom of the hill.

For the inside of the shaker I used some Faux Snow and some Studio Katia Chunky Glitter, and I really love the look! Finally, for the sentiment I die cut the word hello from the MFT Hello There Die-Namics out of white cardstock and I glued it to the top left of my card front.

I also decorated the inside of my card with one more snowman from the Gerda Steiner Designs Snowman Friends and with a sentiment from the Foxes stamp set, which I stamped with Memento Ink in London Fog.
I also created a video showing you how to create this easy winter shaker card, you can watch it down below!
