Sending the Advent Calendar on the Road - Day 12

Shake, shake --- shake your snowman....LOL. Today I made a shaker card. Lots of fun to play with. Shake this way - shake that way...shaka-shaka, watch the snow falla. :) A bit more difficult to actually see the shaky part in a still photograph. Soooooo, scroll to the bottom for a little video clip of the shaking part.

(Ooooh, so bummer....I had the directions all typed up and FireFox crashed before I could save and grrrr...they are all gone., let me know if it's missing stuff because on the repeat I may have thought I did it, but it didn't get back in...sorry.)

Cricut Cartridge: Wild Card
liquid glue

♦ With the Wild Card cartridge in the Cricut, cut out the Birthday card (page 40) at 8.25" (you will need a 10" x 11" card stock)
♦ Use the Clover Meadow Ink to stamp the dots just under the window, the trees towards the bottom of the card, and the message inside the card.
♦ Cut the White Daisy CS 1/8" bigger than the opening. Stamp the Elf/snowman (line it up in the window to make sure you don't have any open edges showing; all you should see is the white from the image CS, not the green from the inside of the card) -- color in desired colors.
♦ Cut Transparency about 1/8" bigger than the opening. Line up with opening making sure it completely covers the opening, use a small piece of tape on one edge to hold in place for the next step; the tape is not staying.
♦ Using the VersaMark and the small snowflakes -- randomly stamp the snowflakes on the top part of the card letting a couple hit the transparency. Sprinkle with the snowflake glitter. Now remove the transparency from the card being careful not to touch the embossing powder -- you will need to heat emboss separate from the card as the card will tolerate more heat. Heat emboss the card, then holding the heat tool at a distance and moving often heat the transparency. If it warps, turn it over and heat a little more to help it reshape or while it's still warm press under some heavy books.
♦ Match the edges of the transparency to the window area and the overlapped stamped snowflakes. Use the Terrifically tacky Tape on the FRONT to hold in place (the best stuff to use for this).
♦ Now place a small amount of chunky glitter in the center.
♦ Put the Terrifically Tacky Tape on the FRONT of the CS with the image on it; line up your edges, and make sure your image looks the way you want, and then seal in place.
♦ Decorate the trees with the sparkles/glitz and add a bow -- Shake-away!
