Shaking it up for JustRite week at Stamper's Dream!

JustRite week is still going on over at Stamper's Dream, so I have another card to share with you today. I adore snowmen. In fact, I have a HUGE collection! So when I saw this sweet little snow guy, my heart melted. I thought it would be fun to let him be the focal point of a shaker card. So that's just what I did. I stamped this cutie from the Old Fashioned Christmas Borders and Centers set (JR), with Black Onyx (Versafine), onto watercolor paper, and embossed him with Detailed Clear ep. I then watercolored him with my Tombow Markers.

I don't have the Spellbinders Snowflakes yet, so I made my own with Spellbinder's Fluer de lis Pendant instead. I just cut out three of them and added some Ultrafine Transparent Glitter with a Quickie Glue Pen. (just a note: one reason I love to use the Quickie Glue Pen, is because it stays tacky long enough, so I'm able to coat the entire snowflake before adding the glitter.)

The little sentiment sign is from the Merry Little Christmas Borders and Centers set. (JR). I just inked up the sentiment without the candy.

The sweet paper is My Mind's Eye's Merry Days of Christmas!! YUMMY stuff!! But, then again, I'm very partial to MME paper...it's my FAVE!!

I finished off this Holiday card with some sewing, Twill Ribbon, red Multicolored Mini Rhinestones (Zva Creative), Christmas Red Stickles, a PTI button, and some punched Snowflakes (Martha Stewart).

Now, you so need to stop by the other Dream Team blogs to see what the other girls have been up to. I'll list the schedule below again.
