Joyful Stars Team November Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Joyful Stars Blog Hop :)  We are doing Holiday/Christmas theme this month.   If you are coming from Cindy's blog you are in the right place :)  

I saw some shaker cards on pinterest and my favorite card making blogs and thought I would give them a try.  I could not find my glitter so I used embossing powder, 3D foam tape, a chipboard frame and our page protectors to create this card.  

While it worked well I think there are a few adjustments I will make when recreating this card.  First I will use glitter because the embossing powder is just a little too fine.  Secondly I'm going to use Liquid Glass to make sure the adhesive is down and will not move.  I got this idea from Betty while we were cropping together today - thanks Betty :)  As it is now when I shake the card and the powder settles a little bit comes out between the cracks of the foam tape.

I used some Sparkle & Shine paper scraps and the Christmas Gift Tag & Bag gift set stamp set for this card.

You can see here in the photo that a little movement makes the card "snow".  And then when it settles it looks like there is snow on the mistletoe, birds and paper "hills".

Thanks so much for stopping by :)  Have a fabulous weekend!  
Your next stop is my friend Betty
Happy Hopping!
