Happy Saturday and hello Sunny Studio Fans! It's Juliana with you today and I'm so happy to be guesting again here on the Sunny Studio blog. Today I'm sharing a Playful Polar Bear Christmas shaker card I created using some new stamps and dies from the Winter Release.

To create the snowy background for this card, begin with the Snow Flurries stamp. With the help of a stamp positioning tool, such as the MISTI, stamp the image with Versamark Embossing Ink 3 times across a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 inch white cardstock.  Slide the cardstock over 1.75 inches each time until the image is stamped across the paper. Sprinkle it with white embossing powder and heat set it using a heat gun.

Next, use an ink blending tool to apply Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers over the stamped and heat embossed snowflakes. This will help the snowflakes show up and pop against the blue background.

Die cut 5 frames from white cardstock and glue them together to create the shaker box frame. Cut a piece of transparency to the same size and glue it on top of the box.

To add a snowy hill for the polar bear to sled on, die cut one from white cardstock and adhere it on the bottom of the stamped snowflakes background.

Die cut another frame from white cardstock. Then die cut another snowy hill, stamp the sentiment on it from the Festive Greetings stamp set and trim it to fit behind the die cut frame. Adhere these together and then adhere them on top of the shaker box.

Next, die cut and trim 5 more snowy hills to match the one you stamped the sentiment on, adhere them together inside the shaker box frame. By adding these inside the shaker box, it will keep the sequins from falling behind the hill in front. I chose to put the sentiment on the outside because with it being placed at the bottom, the sequins would have covered it up and made it difficult to read. You are now ready to fill the shaker box with your favorite sequins and beads. After you do this, adhere the snowflake background to the back side of the shaker box.

For the final touch stamp, color and die cut the polar bear and sled images from the Playful Polar Bears stamp and coordinating dies. Attach them to the hill on the front of the card and your shaker card is complete!
