Let It Snow Shaker Card

 This is my very first shaker card, and it wasn't as complicated as I thought it would be!
 I paper embossed the background (blue) with the Sledding embossing folder, and colored the snowman's nose, eyes, mouth and arms with markers.  Using a sponge I lightly rubbed a very light blue ink over the paper to highlight the embossed ridges.
I embossed a transparency sheet with the Snowflakes embossing folder. I used a narrow strip of long foam tape around the edge of the blue paper, and then placed the embossed transparency sheet over it...leaving a small opening to pour the snow glitter/powder and snowflakes.

The finishing touch was the negative of the Top Note die cut using snowy glittered card stock, and a a metallic snowflake to boot!
I hope that by now my swap partner has received it and likes it!

We are all like a 
Snowflake
all different in our own
Beautiful Way!
