Craft Consortium - It's Snome Time Launch #3

Hi everyone 💜

I hope you're having a fabulous summer....with lots of warm sunshine! If you live in the UK especially the North East you will know that I'm being sarcastic, because at the moment it's cold and cloudy and just plain blah! It's more like autumn than summer. Esh! Or because I'm making Christmas cards atm it's more like winter, but because there are gnomes involved it's all ok. Lol

Anyhow today I'm sharing another card using the brand new collection from Craft Consortium 'It's Snome Time' collection (in partnership with Helz Cuppleditch). The collection has now been launch in craft shops and here and in the USA, it will be launched on Create & Craft TV in a week's time. The beautiful collection contains adorable stamps, papers and embellishments of Snomes (snowy gnomes) and their friends. For my card today I've made a shaker using the very cute Mrs Snome from the 'Mr & Mrs Snome' stamp set, which I coloured with Copics. 

The links to the new products can be found below, or you can also go to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here. Why not sign up for update to product launches while you're there.

Here's What I Did
First I created a white scalloped card blank using folded white card and a scalloped circle die. I die cut another scalloped circle this time from red card and then die cut a circle into the centre. A frame die cut from white card was glued over the front of the aperture to create a pretty edge around it. On the back of the aperture acetate was glued into place to create a window, when this was dry foam tape was added around the aperture to create a well, ensuring there were no gaps.

A circle large enough to cover the back of the foam well and aperture was die cut from blue card and snowflakes were stamped onto it in blue ink. Silver and red star sequins were poured into the foam tape well and the blue circle was placed over the top to create the shaker. The red shaker portion was lined up and attached to the white card front.

Mrs Snome was stamped and coloured in using Copic pens, then fussy cut out. Glitter was added to her hat, and she was attached to the front of the shaker card using foam pads.

To complete the card I added white pen to some of the dots on her outfit, and a sentiment cut from red card was glued to the front of the shaker window.
