Let It Snow! Shaker Card

Frosted Designs Card Sketch Challenge # 9
Today marks another Frosted Designs Tuesday Card Sketch Challenge!  Thank you for stopping by to see my contribution as part of the design team.  Please visit Frosted Designs to see the other designer's cards and to play along for a chance to win a great prize!  You have almost two weeks to create a card following the great sketch below by Diana Gonzalez!

Diana Gonzalez's Sketch
This sketch made me think of a shaker card.  Sandwiched in-between two layers of acetate (transparency film) I poured a mixture of craft-supply "snow".
The "snow" is made with Flower Soft Polar White and Stampendous Silver Crushed Glass Glitter.  I added the glitter because it was heavier then the Flower Soft and I thought it may make the card "shake" better.

Looking through the window of snow to the stamped sentiment
The paper diecuts are from a few Silhouette Cameo shapes, a Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch and a Martha Stewart Snowflake Edger Punch.  I cut out the center of the two large snowflakes for the window using a circle template shape with the Coluzzle.  How I wish that hadn't been discontinued!  I am hoarding a couple of the blades to use only for special occasions, like this card. :-)

Snowflakes layered under a CTMH Shimmer Brad 
The papers are all from CTMH:  Crystal Blue, Grey Flannel, White Daisy and Wonderland B & T.  The inks are Crystal Blue and Black.

First and Second Generation Stamping using CTMH Snowflakes Stamp Set
The snowflakes on the inside of the card were embellished with Silver Glitz Glitter Gel.  On the front of the card there is a Spellbinders snowflake that I cut out of a sheet of double sided adhesive and sprinkled glitter all over it.  That is layered under a bunch of paper snowflakes shown in the photograph below.

Lots of layers of snowflakes!

CTMH Clear Sparkles adorn many of the Snowflakes and Brads
