Snowman Shaker Shabby Chic Xmas Card

It is easy to make shaped cards using a Spellbinder die. For this Shaped Christmas Card I cut cardstock, scored the cardstock, folded the card at the score line. Placed Spellbinder die with part off the edge of the fold. Used Sizzix to cut by placing the top plate so that it was not over the edge ran it thru and cut.

The cardstock, paper, bow die as a sentiment tag & a touch of glitter with the glitter sequins in the shaker part used gives this a shabby chic look.

Decided to make this a shaker style card.

Followed a sketch for this which you can see below.
