Crafter's Companion #11

As usual this time on the Crafter's Companion blog challenge there is a sketch but also a few requirements.

The card must have the colours blue/silver/white and some ribbon as well as a shaker element.

Now the colours and ribbon were ok but i've never tried a shaker card before. This is my second attempt as the first wasn't quite right somehow.I've used a large 8inch square white card and covered it with matt silver paper. The star panels are from the Cute Companions Cd and have been layered with the same silver paper. Silver ribbon overlaid with white lace with a touch of silver has been placed over these.
The shaker element uses an image from the Popcorn Christmas Cd printed onto card and layered onto the same 2 backing papers. The top of the shaker is acetate held in place with a ring of blue pearlescent card. Inside are holographic silver snowflakes.
A peel-off greeting and snowflake cut with Nesties topped with a white brad complete the card, which is for my Grandson's first Christmas.

I just have to make 2 girly versions now for my Grandaughters!
