Create Your Own Photo Card; DIY Christmas Shaker Cards

Create Your Own Photo Card -

If you want to create your own photo card why not try some DIY Christmas Shaker cards? The Still Scenes Stamp Set and the Snow Globe Scenes Dies are perfect for creating your snow globe holiday cards.

With Stampin' Up!'s shaker card supplies it's really quite easy to come up with your own Christmas shaker card idea.

For Christmas photo greeting cards of course you'll need a photo. Be sure and resize it if necessary to fit the focal image inside the Snow Globe Shaker Dome.

You'll Need Something to Shake

Next you can lay out some shaker pieces in the center of the photo before attaching the shaker dome. I didn't put too much in because I didn't want those adorable faces to be covered. 🙂 I used some of the clear gems from the Flowers For Every Season Gems. and also some retired Ice Stampin' Glitter.

After your shaker gems and glitter are in place, remove the adhesive to the back of the shaker dome and attach it over the photo and shaker pieces. Press firmly all around the outside edges.

Beautiful Papers Can Go a Long Way

Next you'll want to select your papers for the layers and the globe stand and Christmas card sentiment. This paper for the background layer came from the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper collection. I glued the layers together to create the snow globe base after cutting them using the Snow Globe Scenes Dies. The opening for the snow globe also used a die from this set. Remove the adhesive from the TOP edge of the snow globe and then lay the paper over it, with the globe popping up through the opening.

The patterns in this paper collection really give off a wonderful winter feel. I decided on Highland Heather Card Stock for the snow globe base.

The Final Touches

A greeting from the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set was embossed in white onto a strip of Highland Heather Card Stock.

The whole thing was layered onto a larger piece Highland Heather. I then attached it to a card front made of Whisper White Thick Card Stock. Using the thicker card stock was important to keep the heavier front from pulling the card over.

Here's a simple snowman shaker card you can make for Christmas.
