Lawnscaping Challenge #97

Lawnscaping Challenge #97 is Winter Themed Mood Board

Sooo love winter themed cards and the weather here has been pretty winter-y!  Really cold temps and lots of snow, which is a big contrast from last week!!

I made this card.
I love shaker cards but have never liked the bulk that comes along with them.  This card has none of that! If you want to see a demonstration, click here Jennifer McGuire No Bulk Shaker Card video.   This is the process.  Cut two pieces of acetate a little larger than the shaker window.  Adhere one to the card in the back of the window, put in your beads or sequins, they have to be smaller and not too thick. Adhere the second piece of acetate you have cut to the first piece to enclose the sequins/beads, and there it is NO bulk!! Your adhesive has to be pretty strong so nothing falls out, but the video explains it really well.   The beads/sequins don't move as much but I actually like that better. :)  I used Lawn Fawn Peace Joy Love, Milo's ABC's and Winter in the Park  for all the images.  The snow on the card base is embossed with texture paste using the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  I stamped, colored and cut out the images and adhered them directly on the front of the acetate window and used white enamel accents to create the 'snow' on the window.  I did add a piece of Lawn Fawn paper to the back of the window inside and  framed it in so it would look good when the card was opened.

Ha this is kind of  a long post for me, but I was a little excited, could you tell?  Thanks for coming by and I'll see you next time. 

This is a new technique so I am also going to enter into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Something New.
