Friday Mashup #35 - Fun In The Snow

Hello there,
Today's post is for The Friday Mashup Challenge this week to create a Shaker card and or with a Winter Scene. I have gone with both and used some different elements in my card that I have not used before.  I made my own shaker from scratch using a large piece of dimensional foam.  I cut the circle out with my Classic Circles Nestabilities and my Big Shot.  I also used White Glossy cardstock that I embossed using Embossing folders.  I saw a video by Kay Kalthoff and decided to give it a try, it creates a shiny embossed surface and I am very happy with the results.

This card Rocked the Challenge this week at The Friday Mashup.
