I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Ours was pretty good and we enjoyed lots of time with family. I just love snowman images, love, love, love them! when I saw this one from Pholkart Blessings, I knew I had to have it, I especially love snowmen that are wearing scarves! I also that that this image would make a wonderful shaker card. Most all of the shaker cards I have ever made have been using snowmen images. I know my niece will love getting this one for Christmas. She is 12 and still thinks I am pretty cool because I know how to make all sorts of things so I try and make her something different each birthday or holiday.
image (I have used Warm Heart Snowman from Pholkart Blessings)
Nestabilities (or some way to cut out your shapes)
Copics (or some other coloring medium)
I started by printing my image to the size I wanted and then cutting out a circle around the image with a Circle Nestability. I knew I was going to be using dark blue paper, so I punched out a larger scalloped circle out of that paper and then used a smaller plain circle to cut a window out of the scalloped circle. Then I colored the image using the following Copics: B0000, B00, BV11, BV13, B12, B14. E29, YR 04, YR07 and R29.
After my image was colored, I added the foam tape around the entire circle, taking care to not leave any gaps between the pieces of foam.
(I cut small strips of the Scotch foam tape, them cut each strip into three thinner strips)
After making sure there were no gaps, I added a small amount of glitter on top of the image and then removed the backing from my foam tape. If you are like me and a little heavy handed with the glitter, make sure you remove the backing after adding the glitter.
Using the same Nestability that I used to cut out my image, I also cut out a piece of acetate and then adhered it to the foam tape.
