Technique Thursday #45-2016

Pick your favorite technique from the last year -

I choose a shaker card inspired by the cards found here.  The image and sentiment are from a stamp set by Unity called Magical as Snow. I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers and cut it out with the same dies that I cut the frame from.  I then cut out the frame with two nesting dies. I cut a piece of acetate with the larger die and glued it to the back of the frame, then mounted that on foam tape.  I learned a trick from others to using an embossing buddy on the edges before taking off the backing to take any stickiness off the edges.  Before mounting that over the image, I added some silver snow flakes that were cut from foil paper with an old punch that I have.  This was put on paper from a pack by Echo Park called Hello Winter.  The sentiment was stamped and cut from the same die set as the frame then inked around the edges with Distress Ink. This was a fun card to do for a special little girl - Denise


  1. I love this Unity image. And it's made even more special with the shaker element! I love the patterned paper you used with this...perfect!

  2. It's beautiful. I love the punched out snowflakes in the shaker.


    1. Thank you Evelyn. I try and look for different things in the shaker and not always sequins.
