Here's my second shaker card with Cling Giving Snowmen Rubber Stamp Set and Vixen, Penguin Party, and Pixie Dust Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. I must admit that I went a little overboard and probably overstuffed my shaker, but in my defense, they're sooooo pretty and sparkly!

  1. Create a red A2 card. 
  2. Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the Snowman image onto white cardstock and onto Eclipse Tape 
  3. Fussy-cut the Eclipse Tape version and place atop the one on the white cardstock. 
  4. Brush Summer Sky Memento ink over the masked image. 
  5. Brush Angel Pink Memento ink over the masked image. 
  6. Lift the mask and save for another use. 
  7. Color the image panel. 
  8. Add several layers of Clear Glaze pen to the Snowman's nose, mouth, eyes, and buttons. 
  9. Using temporary adhesive, adhere the patterned paper to a piece of red cardstock. 
  10. Using the third largest die from the A2 Layers Card Maker Die set, cut the cardstock/patterned paper combination. 
  11. Choose a die from the same set to become the shaker opening, position the die onto the cardstock/patterned paper combo, tape the die down, and cut. 
  12. Use the next smallest die and cut pink cardstock. 
  13. Separate the patterned paper from the red cardstock and die-cut the patterned paper so that it's slightly smaller than the red cardstock. 
  14. Adhere the pink cardstock to the back of the patterned paper, then adhere to the red cardstock. This is the card front. 
  15. Position acetate on the reverse of the card front over the opening. Adhere. 
  16. Apply foam tape around the openinge. I used two layers of foam tape. 
  17. Add a combination of the Vixen, Penguin Party, and Pixie Dust Sparkle Blends to the well created with the foam tape. Don't be like me and overfill. It's not easy to resist. Be strong. 
  18. Seal the well with the stamped, colored image panel. 
  19. Adhere the shaker card front to the red card. 
  20. Realize that you've overfilled the shaker and that your layers are a bit wonky. Perfection is overrated, so get over it.
