Snowman Shaker Card - Art Impressions

A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of having a "play date" at my friend Cheri's house. After meeting her three adorable dogs, we moved upstairs into her beautiful craft room. 

I had brought a ton of things to work on but when she brought out this Snowman shaker set for Art Impressions, I knew immediately I was looking at the perfect Christmas cards for my nephews. I just had to stamp a few!

My two youngest nephews live in Calgary so I won't be with them Christmas morning when they open these but I can hear them giggling now! 

I could actually hear them giggling as I worked on these cards - okay one will be giggling and the other one will be shaking his head saying "Oh Auntie Donna"... 

These fun "bums" are on a Wobbler so every time the card is moved the bells will ring - so fun!!!!

I started by colouring the snowmen with alcohol markers and fussy cutting them. They are popped up with pop dots. I glued my bells onto the shaker portion and mounted it on a Wobbler. I cut a banner die and punched a snowflake in the middle. Labels behind my image add some pattern and colour and draw a attention to the snowman. All papers are edged with antique linen distress ink. Some silver and gold glitter gumdrops finish off my cards.
