This kits arrive with EVERYTHING you need to complete a number of projects, so it’s a great option for beginner stampers or busy crafters who like when everything arrives ready to make!

When I saw the exclusive stamp set that arrived in this Ho Ho Ho kit, I was so happy! The Santa sleigh and reindeer silhouette is useful in so many ways, but I know I wanted to add some snow.

Adding snow can be done with stamps and ink, or a few embellishments, or even some wink of Stella! These are all great choices and can make a holiday card look fantastic!

Additionally, adding snow can be done by making a shaker card where the “snow” can actually shake around! Of course this is what I chose for this card, ha ha — I LOVE shakers. (Click here to see the tutorials of a few other shakers I’ve made).

How to make this Santa Snow Shaker Card with your October 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit:

Stamp your elements:

  • With the blue card base in the kit, repeatedly stamp “ho ho ho” with the included ink for a fun background.
  • Next, stamp the Santa sleigh silhouette at the top of the starry die-cut. Adhere this to the center of your card front.
  • Use the same included ink to stamp the sentiment on the die-cut with subtle blue stitching and set this aside.

Make the Snow Shaker:

  • Cut your window sheet to the size of the white square outline (approximately 3-1/8” x 3-1/2”). Stick them together with glue dots. Trim to fit.
  • On the back of this window sheet, apply strips of foam adhesive strips.
  • Sprinkle some sequins and/or glitter in the center of the santa piece. Then pull off the adhesive covers on the foam adhesive strips and press down over the santa piece.

TIP: When making a shaker card, apply foam adhesive strips with the corners touching and overlapping. This keep your sequins and glitter inside the shaker!

Add some details:

  • Adhere the red striped die-cut to the bottom of your shaker element. Then add your stamped sentiment above it.
  • Lastly, add a few snowflakes using glue dots.
