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.

Snowman Season Gift Duo

Snowman Season

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.)
