Subtle Snowglobe Shaker Card with Raccoon
What’s cuter than a Subtle Snowglobe Shaker Card? Maybe one with a sledding raccoon inside!
Who doesn’t love a cute shaker card? Sure, kids love them, but admit it; every time you get a shaker card you sit and shake it for fun, right? Shiny snowflakes sequins in this shaker card make it that much prettier!
I’ve always been a fan of making shakers (see below for other examples and tutorials), and these snow globe shaker domes have really made it easier to step up the shaker card game!
Coincidentally, I mixed two fun stamp sets together. That sledding raccoon loves being in the snowglobe!
TIP: if you ever find you are at a lack for project inspiration, pull out two stamp sets, and consider how they can be paired together!
See below to see how to put together this fun snow shaker!
How to make a Subtle Snow Shaker Card:
Cut your Cardstock:
- Highland Heather: 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored and folded at 4 1/4”.
- Balmy Blue: 5 1/4” x 4”.
- Whisper White: 3 3/4” x 3 3/4”
Stamp the inside of the snowglobe:
- On the white piece, stamp the snowglobe glass using black ink.
- Next, create the scene with a few trees and snow. Color it in using stampin’ markers — I recommend Mint Macaron for the trees.
Stamp your card front:
- Die cut the globe from the blue piece.
- Stamp snowflakes and your sentiment using black ink.
- Create the snow globe base by die-cutting out the base and inlay. Glue together, then adhere it below the globe die-cut.
Create the snowglobe shaker:
- On a scrap of white, stamp the raccoon and color it in. I used highland heather, balmy blue, and smoky slate blends for the body.
- Next, attach it in front of your snowy scene using dimensionals.
- Sprinkle some sequins over the raccoon scene, keeping it within the bounds of the stamped snowglobe glass.
- To finish creating the snowglobe, peel off the BACK of the snow globe dome and attach it over your scene.
Put it all together!
- Peel off the FRONT of the snow globe dome, and push it through the globe hole from the back and ensure it’s attached.
- Lastly, attach this layer (blue with a shaker dome) onto your purple card base. SHAKE!
