When we were kids, snow days were the best days weren't they? It seems like we could pack more fun in one snow day than almost any other day of the year.
On many snow days, we would go down to a nearby, frozen pond to ice skate with all the other neighborhood kids. Thinking back now, it was very much like the ice skating scene with all the children playing, and ice skating on the pond in the beautiful, classic Christmas movie "It's a Wonderful Life".
This was my inspiration for my little "Foxy Skater" shaker card.
I first printed my image on white card stock and colored him with Copic Markers and watercolors (supply list below).
I used Distress Oxide inks to create a background for my card and spritzed it lightly with water to create a distant snowfall.
I also die cut a shape out for the icey frozen lake that I would place my "Foxy Skater" on. I distressed the shape and lightly spritzed it with water as well.
I die cut a couple of snow drifts and a few winter branches to place inside the window frame of the shaker part of my card.
I added a few sparkles, gems and snow and sealed it with a a few stitched frames and a piece of clear acetate to hold it all together.
For the base of my card I printed out one of my "Buffalo Flannels" Pattern Digi Papers and placed it on my Kraft card.
Then I attached my winter shaker window and placed it on top of my card base and added my "Foxy Skater", a couple of die cut trees, and a snowflake..
I printed and die cut my sentiment and added it to the upper left of my card. I added a glittery enamel dot, some snow to my trees and my card was finished.
