Winter Shaker Card (by Anne)

Good morning. Today I am sharing another of my recent show samples using one of the lovely seasonal ladies – Winter Dawn. I just had to go over the top with sparkle and bling for this one – tee hee.

This one does make a nice Christmas card (sorry to use the ‘C’ word) - but it could just as equally make a nice winter birthday card too.


How to make it:

  1. Stamp the image with Versamark and emboss with the silver powder. Colour with pencils and use fine tipped black pen to darken eyes. Use the white pen to enhance highlights. Add glitter glue to snowflakes. You could stop at this stage and simply mat and layer onto the card front.
  2. Cut a frame from holographic card. Using texture paste add the lettering through the stencil. Quickly coat with loose glitter. When dry enhance the lettering by drawing on a drop shadow with black pen.
  3. Trim the acetate to fit behind the frame. Add snowflakes using Kristall and applying through the stencil. When dry glue to the back of the frame with strong tape. Apply the framed window to the card with 3D foam tape ensuring that there are no gaps. Before sticking down add a pile of crystal glitter to the middle of the card.
  4. Finish with die cut snowflakes.


  1. Beautiful work. I can almost feel the frost. This set of stamps is so versatile.

  2. Stunning card Anne, love the icy look and all that sparkle, gorgeous colours too, thanks for the how to do, Kate x

  3. I love CAS-cards and this 2nd one is a beauty in that style!

  4. I love the cool, Wintery feel of the card which comes from that icy blue and the sequins bring another dimension, which would be just perfect for Christmas, it's gorgeous. Sandra x
