January Card Club-Shaker Card

The card we're going to make this month is sure to help you "shake" away the winter snow! I think its a really pretty card, has a definite winter feeling, kind of like looking out of a picture window.

This card is not necessarily difficult, but it does have quite a few steps, so it is a little more involved. The technique I'm teaching is called 3D stamping, and it is SO EASY! This card will make your eyes "glitter" with stamping excitement.

Besides your regular crafting kit, here's the list of supplies you will need to bring if you have them:

Red liner tape

Double stick foam tape

White gel pen

Embossing buddy (or other anti-static bag) or slightly used dryer sheet

Tree silhouette or scene stamp

Polka dot or very small snowflake stamp

Weathered wood distress ink

White pigment ink

White liquid applique

Heat gun

Scoring tool

Clear or white ultra fine glitter

You can't really tell from the picture, and I can't make it actually "shake" for you on-line, but this is called a shaker card. Think a snowy night, with snow gently falling, and you inside all warm and cozy stamping away with a cup of hot cocoa.

If you're interested in taking this class, it is being offered at All About Pictures on January 7th from 6:30 to 9 pm, and again on January 14th at the same time. Please pay the instructor $10.00 at the beginning of class, and after class pay the store for the card kit. Openings are limited and filling up fast, so give the store a call at 319-364-4141 to reserve your spot!

I'm looking forward to crafting with you! ~Kim~
