Shaker Christmas card

This week, I made a card for four challenges: StampTV MIUM Color Challenge, StampTV Release Party Challenge - Add a BowMod Squad Challenge - Trees and Snow, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Ice Inspiration.

I decided to do a shaker card and have the glitter and flocking powder be the snow shaking around the trees. For the color challenge, I didn't have all the ink colors so I used the Spectrum Noir alcohol markers that closely match. 

I drew the stripes on the front of the card base and cut out a circle from the middle. I stamped the trees, cut them out, added Stickles to the stars and glued some flocking powder to the trees and under the trees. I cut the frame out of cardstock and a foam sheet, colored the cardstock frame and glued a piece of acetate to the back. I glued the foam sheet frame to the acetate and let it dry. 

I adhered the tree image to a piece of cardstock the same size as the front of the card and attached this making sure that the trees were lined up with the opening. I added some glitter to the middle of the trees and glued on the frame, making sure not to move the glitter until the glue from the frame was dry.

I stamped the sentiment, cut it out, ran a marker around the edge and attached it to the bottom of the frame. I made a triple loop bow and added it to the top of the frame with a mini Glue Dot.
