Hi everybody! Leslie here, sharing a pretty Wintery scene depicting a couple kitties looking out the window at a full moon in the starry sky, sparkling tall trees and snow banks! Since we still have a little bit of the cold stuff ahead of us, I created a Winter shaker note card featuring our Mini Shaker Window as well as our 4x6 Stars Stencil which I used for the night sky.
I cut a standard A2 size card base from white cardstock and adhered a panel of patterned paper to it. I cut a panel of blue cardstock slightly larger than the shaker window, applied white paint over the 4x6 Stars Stencil with a dauber, then added a strip of glitter tall tree washi tape and two layers of snowbanks created from torn white cardstock. I traced the shape of the Mini Shaker Window on the panel, cut it out and adhered it to the back layer of the shaker. I always work from the bottom up when assembling shakers. I adhered the next two chipboard forms, then the acrylic layer (protective film removed), added white seed beads, and then adhered the top chipboard form which I colored with an alcohol marker.
I adhered a narrow strip of brown cardstock around the outside edge of the shaker to conceal the chipboard layers prior to adhering it to the card base. I adhered two die cut cats in front of the window, a vertical computer-generated sentiment down the left side and a very thin white cardstock strip down the right side to complete the card front.
I cut the inside panel from white cardstock and embellished it with the patterned paper used on the front as well as a narrow strip of brown cardstock. Since this is a note card, I left the panel blank leaving plenty of room for a handwritten note, and layered it on brown cardstock.
