Cat Snow Globe Christmas Card

Cat Snow Globe

I created this shaker card for our four year old granddaughter, Madysen. 

She loves kitties, and I hope this one will make her smile.

Shaker Cards are easy to create.

Here's how I did this one:

  1. To create the shaker card, cut the globe out of Smoky Slate card stock measuring 5" x 3 3/4"  using the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and Snow Globe die. 
  2. Stamp greeting.  You want to do this before the card is put together.  I used a greeting from the retired set Flurry of Wishes stamped in Memento Black ink.
  3. Attach Basic Black card stock measuring 5 1/4" x 4" to Petal Pink card base.
  4. Cut cat out of Plaid Tidings 6"x6" Designer Series Paper using the Cat Punch.  Tie a bow around the cat using baker's twine or ribbon.  I used pink baker's twine out of my stash. Attach to the center of a Basic Black mat.
  5. Lay the card flat and carefully place sequins or glitter over the cat.  I used sequins out of my stash. 
  6. Apply adhesive around the cut opening and all along the backside of the Smoky Slate card front.
  7. Remove the backing on the Shaker Dome.  Insert it into the opening on the card base.  Carefully place the Smoky Slate card base with the dome inserted over the punched cat and onto the Basic Black mat.  Rub the card front with your fingertips to adhere the adhesive to the mat.
  8.  Cut snow globe base out of Petal Pink and Basic Black card stock using the Snow Globe dies.  Layer together using a small amount of Fine Tip or Multi-purpose Glue.  Attach to the card front.
  9.  Add sequins using Fine Tip or Multi-purpose Glue to complete.

Sparkles and Rainbow Unicorn Card


Our Granddaughter Madysen just turned 4!

The theme for her birthday party was Unicorns and Rainbows.

I had seen an idea on Pinterest awhile ago by Jennifer McGuire Ink and saved it because it just reminded me of my sweet Madysen.

Then, the invite came with the party theme, and I knew I had to make my version of the card.

A lot of the items used to create this card are retired Stampin' Up! products.

It's a good thing I keep some of the retired product in my stash!

The unicorn's ears were cut out or Rose Glimmer Paper using my Big Shot and Pyramid Pals Dies.

The flowers and leaves were punched out of Rainbow Glimmer paper (current!) using retired daisy and leaf punches.  The glimmer brads in the center are also retired.

The horn was cut free-hand out of a piece of current Silver Glimmer paper, then I added the stripes using a black Sharpie Pen.

The eyelashes were drawn on also using the Sharpie.

The stamp set is long-ago retired Sweet Serendipity and was stamped using Memento Black ink.

This stamp set is so old that the stamps are mounted on wood blocks.

It's been awhile since I've stamped using wooden blocks, and I had a hard time getting the words straight.

Ooops!  Tried it a few times, and then decided it was good enough!

I then inked up the sprinkles stamp found in the retired set Tasteful Textures using Frosty White Shimmer paint.

I matted the card front to a piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper, then attached it to Basic Black card front.

I hope Miss Madysen likes her special card.

I had fun making it for her!

Stamp Set: Sweet Serendipity, Tasteful Textures

Ink: Memento Black

Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Rose, Silver, and Rainbow Glimmer Paper
