Let it snow

Hi, here's a card made with one of Michelle Perkett's new images 'Snow Family Singing'. Michelle has launched some new images featuring the snow family and they are adorable! You can find them in Michelle's store here. I've made a shaker card, I haven't made one of these for ages but I love making them and thought that it would be a fun card for my son.

Its an 8x8 card and the background is made by stamping a large snowflake stamp from Elusive images on white card, embossing with clear EP and then spraying with loads of cosmic shimmer mist in midnight blue and silver firework ink. I coloured the image with promarkers, painted the background with some more midnight blue shimmer spray and then cut a frame from white glitter card which I backed with acetate. I used silver and clear sparkly stars for the shaker element and attached the frame with shaker tape. I added some snowflakes and a couple of icicle borders, generously coated with crushed glass glitter. Here's a pic to try and show a little of the detail

 I added blue ribbon and clear gems to finish the card off
