Snowman Shaker Card with Frosted Window

Hello, friends. Today, I'm sharing a winter themed shaker card featuring a frosted window technique...
Let's talk about the technique first. I cut a piece of acetate using one of THESE circle dies. I just used a piece of recycled packaging for the acetate. I adhered one of THESE stencils on top using a small piece of tape towards the bottom (since that part would be hidden). I applied some of THIS embossing paste on top with This. After it dries, it creates a frosted window look. I love how it turned out...
To create the shaker part, I cut two of the circles from the same circle die set to create a circle frame. I cut that frame several times from THIS cardstock, layered and adhered them together. I rubbed the inside with THIS powder bag to eliminate any static for the beads to stick to. I placed some clear and pearl seed beads on top of a scalloped background cut with THIS die and inked with THIS ink. I adhered the shaker part on top. 

You can see it in action over on my Instagram HERE
I die-cut this border die from white cardstock and adhered it towards the bottom of the circle to create a snowbank. I stamped a greeting from THIS stamp set on top. I stamped, colored, and cut out the snowman image from THIS set. I used THESE coordinating dies to cut out the image and also the snowman's scarf. The die actually cuts out the branch image, but I used it to create a scarf for the snowman. I added some of THIS to the snowman's eyes and buttons to make them stand out. 

I hope you give this frosted window technique a try. It's so fun. 

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stamping!
