Darling Donkeys Week – Project #3

Hello! How is your week going? Yesterday afternoon I took my kids sledding on the new snow we got the night before. It was a load of fun! Here is fun pic my oldest took of my youngest and I as we prepared for our ride down the BUMPY hill! I only went down the hill 2 or 3 times but had a blast.

Today’s project is a swap card I made for my Stampahowlics team swap. These Simple Shaker Cards are my new favorite way to make shaker cards. Having to deal with foam adhesive strips, powder (so the shaker bits don’t stick to the side, and having to line everything up kept me from making shakers cards. I have made a few, but they were always too much trouble for me to get just right. This way is much easier!

The background inside of the clear envelope was run through the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder. I used Misty Moonlight 2020-2021 In Color Ribbon to wrap around the outside of the clear envelope shaker and tied in a small piece of the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

I placed the sentiment on the embossed background before I sealed it in the clear envelope with the shaker bits. That is the only glued item inside the envelope. I didn’t want to add too much that the shaker bits could get stuck on. As you can see in the picture below, the envelope has been adhered to the card base after being tightly sealed so the shaker bits cannot fall out. The ribbon is strung around the shaker part of the card before it is glued to the card base.

The remaining elements were glued to the outside of the envelope with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I know the directions for this one is all out of order due to the photos being taken after I completed the card. Please view the YouTube Video for better instructions.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Make sure to subscribe to Let It Snow Stamping so you never miss another blog post. Every week I pick a stamp set and make one project (possibly two) every weekday. As an added bonus I also make videos for new techniques. The techniques can also be found under the Technique Corner tab.
