Last weekend I had a dream about a shaker card. It was a snowglobe card, with an iris folded snowglobe behind an acetate aperture, with glitter and snowflake confetti between the two. I was determined to make it - until I assembled all the bits and bobs and realised that the glitter and confetti would simply get stuck in the iris folding and not shake at all.
Anyhoo, I'd dug out my glitter, confetti and acetate so I decided to press on with a shaker card, but using elements from a kit that was a magazine freebie a few years ago.
Eek! I can see from the photo that some of the peel off borders have come adrift, I promised I'll fix that good and proper before it goes into my Christmas card box!
This seems to be a problem prone card - as well as that, I originally stuck the snow globe down at a very wonky angle. Not the kind of angle where trimming the edge of the card would put it right, this was a full on, so wonky those penguins would slide off their ice floe kind of wonky. It was firmly stuck down so I had to cut the entire front panel off the card, trim it so the globe sat squarely and then attach it to a new card. I really think this is the card that didn't want to be made!
Nevertheless it's made now (and I've just broken off and sorted out those peel offs) so I am sharing it with
