Snowflake Splendor Shaker Card

I’m showing you how to make a Snowflake Splendor Shaker Card. See the directions and video below.

Snowflake Splendor Shaker Card

Let it snow! Today’s shaker card makes that happen. Sometimes, shaker cards seem difficult to make. But this new technique is easy. It uses one of Stampin’ Up!’s Clear Envelopes. (I grabbed this idea from one of the presenters at our demonstrator gathering and made it my own.)

My class attendees loved making this card.

  • It starts with a Night of Navy card stock base.
  • The Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper is cut at 5 x 3 3/4.
  • Sentiment — stamped in Night of Navy — comes from Snowman Season stamp set.
  • Used Snowflake Sequins and retired Dazzling Diamond for the snow. (I saw another demonstrator use course sea salt as snow.)
  • 20 inches of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
  • Coordinating bling from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Be sure to watch the video for a step-by-step presentation of how this card goes together.


Extended through Wednesday, November 25, Stampin’ Up! is holding its Online Extravaganza. Almost everything in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is 10 percent off. Some exclusions (seventy-four items) apply, but that leaves a whole of card stock, ink, stamp sets, bundles, embossing folders, and more on sale. Click here to shop online.

Please let me know if you have questions about this card or any other paper crafting projects. If you’re not currently working with a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I’d love to help you in your crafting journey.

Stampin’ Up’s catalogs feature a great variety of stamps, dies, punches, ribbons, and Designer Series Paper to create your handmade holiday. I can’t choose a favorite — too many to list! But I do appreciate the sets with coordinating punches. The Snowman Season photopolymer set and the coordinating Snowman Builder Punch make crafting easy and fun. (I love that the punch includes segments for hat and stick arms!)

Snowman Season

This card uses Night of Navy card stock and the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. (I based this card off of a sketch our team is using for a challenge this month.)

How To Create a Seasonal Frame

Learn how to create a seasonal frame! Keep reading to view a video tutorial on making this fun fall home decor item.

How to Create a Fall Seasonal Frame

Stampin’ Up! products lend themselves perfectly to card making, memory keeping projects, treat packages, and even home decor. I created this fall seasonal frame to use as a decoration in my home.

(See this additional post featuring holiday frames. Do you prefer the traditional or whimsical?)

Here are some of the details about this fall-themed frame. Purchased at Ikea, the frame holds a 5 x 7 insert.

  • The bottom layer of Mango Melody card stock measures 5 x 7.
  • Next layer of Basic Black card stock measures 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches.
  • The patterned paper — Plaid Tidings — measures 4 x 6. (Note: This 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is 15 percent off through October 31, 2020.)
  • Leaves cut with die from Gathered Leaves Dies in coordinating colors of (left to right): Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Mango Melody, and Cajun Craze.
  • Letters die cut in Basic Black card stock with Playful Alphabet Dies.
  • Ribbon is a 7-inch piece of Black Glittered Organdy.
  • Embellishments are the Holiday Rhinestones.

Think about all of the different holidays where you could create a seasonal frame!

Maui Achievers October 2020 Blog Hop Projects

I love many things about Stampin’ Up! products. I love the color coordination. The card stock matches the ink matches the markers matches the ribbon matches the ribbon. You get the idea! But I also appreciate the product versatility. The stamps, ink, paper, and accessories lend themselves to a variety of projects, in addition to greeting cards and memory keeping. I enjoy creating home decor with my Stampin’ Up! goodies.

Today, I’m sharing two holiday themed framed projects — one a bit more traditional and the other whimsical. Which  is your favorite?

The “Joy” frame uses the the Red Velvet 12 x 12 paper from Stampin’ Up!’s August-December Mini Catalog, as well as the Playful Alphabets Dies and the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
