Hi Everyone, as soon as I saw the Winter Classic embossing folding I knew it would look great with a shaker in the centre and happily our smaller round shaker domes are a perfect fit for it. The small stamped images are ideal for creating a winter scene inside the shaker dome.
Start with a 12.5cm square white card blank and layer that with pale blue card. Cut a piece of dark blue card 12cm square and die cut a 7.6cm circle from the centre of it. Emboss the dark blue card, making sure that the circular aperture is lined up with the circle on the centre of the embossing folder. One the dark blue card is die die cut and embossed, lay it over the pale blue card and lightly mark the position of the centre circle with a pencil.
To create the winter scene, hand cut white card to form the hillsides and glue in position and stamp the trees and deer. Use a white Gelly Roll pen to create the snow in the sky and a Quickie glue pen and Glamour dust to add lines of glitter to the hillsides. Pour a pile of chunky glitter in the centre of the scene, spread glue around the rim of the shaker dome and glue in position. At this stage whilst the glue is still wet it helps to put the dark blue card over the shaker dome to make sure that it is positioned exactly. When you are happy, weight the shaker dome down until the glue is dry to ensure it is firmly in place, them glue the dark blue card in position over it.
Finish it off with a white and silver die cut sentiment mounted on adhesive foam pads. A great card with lots of interest which I think would work equally well as a night time scene with the pale and dark blue card reversed and a moon in the sky.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you like it too.
