Happy Sunday everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog creating a shiny SHAKER card.

SUPPLIES: Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Premium cardstock, Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils, Clear Designer Toner Sheets and Designer Dies, Therm O Web Deco Foils, Purple Tape and Mixed Media Adhesives, MultiCraft CraftMedley Glass Beads, Clearsnap Top Boss ink and embossing powder, unknown craft foam.

I’m still relatively new to stamping and card making. I tend to go all in and try to use as many products as I can. Thankfully, Therm O Web understands and always has amazing corresponding products that feed my need for “lots of details”.  Their Gina K. Designs Premium cardstock has been a game-changer for me; it’s smooth, high-quality finish has helped to elevate my stamping and embossing…and then they have foil – how did I ever create without foil before?

Here is how I created this very happy, shiny shaker card:
Step 1- STAMP
Stamp the sentiment, “Thanks Snow Much”.
Stamp and emboss snowflakes with Gina K. Designs Baby, it’s Cold Outside stamps. I used Clearsnap, Top Boss, ink and silver embossing powder. Christmas SHAKER card designed by Kerry Engel featuring Therm O Web | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineStep 2 – FOIL
Using a laminator add Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils to the Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates Label Border and Designer Toner Sheets (Prim Poinsettia design)  and cut out the label with the corresponding die set. I use the purple tape to hold my die in place when I run it through my die cutting machine. It holds everything in place perfectly AND it is easily removed.

Using the Gina K. Designs Decorative Label Die, cut out two pieces of craft foam and a “window” from the foiled Poinsettia Toner Sheet.
Create a sandwich from the foiled label, toner sheet window, and two layers of foam. This sandwich will hold the MultiCraft CraftMedley glass seed beads that turn this into a shaker card.  Adhere the window layers together with Mixed Media adhesive.

Attach your window filled with beads to your card front with Mixed Media adhesive. I added a snowflake die (Baby It’s Cold outside set) with a  fussy cut toner sheet poinsettia in the lower corner of the label.Christmas SHAKER card designed by Kerry Engel featuring Therm O Web | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine
Randomly adhere glass beads to the face of the card with the Mixed Media adhesive.  Mount everything on a sheet of glitter cardstock.

Wait till your adhesive dries and then shake, shake your happy card!
Merry Christmas everyone!
