Shaking Up Some Cheer

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I am playing along with this weeks challenge Sparkle and Shine. I have created a shaker card with the circle stackers and Horizon Circle set! 

I love how easy it is to cut a frame for your shaker I simply lined up a smaller circle inside my Horizon die, secured them with some washi tape, and cut them together in my machine.
I cut all of my snowflake pieces in white which was a little stark compared to the rest of my paper. I used pearl mists to add gold and pearl shimmer to my snowflakes and dull the stark white card stock.

For the shaker I cut a circle for the background and a circle out of clear acetate. I adhered the acetate to the frame with a clear lacquer.

I then added foam tape to the back of the frame to give my sequins and sparkles a space in which to move. If you desire chunkier shakings use another layer or two of foam tape. Make sure you have all of your pieces touching so there are no holes for shakings to escape!

I stack my shakings in the middle before adhering the frame. Here I used sequins, snowflake glitter and some crystals.

When you adhere the frame, make sure all sides are secure and then give it a shake to make sure it works! 

I added my shimmer snowflakes to the frame and then used a clear gem as a spacer for a smaller snowflake to be placed on top. It added just the right height and was clear so could not interfere with the top layer of snowflake

As a final touch I added crystals here and there to centers and along the flurry strip!
