Snow Man Shaker Fuse card

I love snowmen... I am not a big fan of the snow in real life lol, but Snowmen are my favorite Christmas décor!!!  I fell in love with this simple Fuse Tool shaker card.  I added a stamped sentiment "Merry Christmas" from Craftin Desert Diva's (CDD) from their Happy Celebrations set which can be found by clicking here.  This is such a fabulous stamp set to have for card making through out the seasons and card giving occasions!

I didn't stamp it too straight unfortunately but oh well still love this card.  This one I adhered to a green stripe card stock and love the way it turned out making the edges look... so cute!  Reminds me of how the old postcards were.  I also added some dew drops on either side of the Merry Christmas Sentiment.

I wanted to point out that I cut down the shaker cards.....  they originally come as a trifold card but I like to cut apart all three panels so my kit stretches further.  I just use it as a card front on a regular card stock base.  The material is like a soft plastic and very flimsy... so for me not only does it need the card stock base to firm it up... but I get three card fronts out of one card!!!  Or I can use the extra fronts to cut shapes out of to add more fuse-able pieces to my other card fronts.

Here are both of the shaker cards I made with the red snowman fronts adhered onto Green Stripe Card stock bases.  The second card I used Green Brads instead of the dew drops.  There are 6 shaker card fronts in this kit... 2 each of 3 designs.  Plus 6 more regular cards, once I cut them in Half I can double it!!!  I hope you enjoyed all of my Shaker cards from this fuse kit over the last several days.  I used up all of the shaker fronts but I will be making more fuse cards soon with what is left in my Holiday kit.  I am sure I may even turn some of them into my own shaker designs!!!
