This month my cousin’s daughter turned four. And of course she loooovvvveees Frozen. She is a princess through and through, this child.
For her birthday I decided I wanted to make her a card with images from the movie. I also decided to make my first shaker card. I thought it would be great to have some ‘snow’ to shake around.
I used Silhouette’s print and cut feature to make the card.
I used foam pads to pop out the characters. I made two copies of the background and cut a square out of one.
However, I neglected to place a spacer between the levels, so the stuff inside doesn’t really ‘shake’.
But, it was my first shaker card, and I didn’t actually read any directions on how to make one…
The Birthday Girl loved the card, so it was a win in my book!
I also wanted to make something using the sketch feature.
So I made her this picture and mounted it on canvas for her room.
I didn’t like the way the words at the top looked just sketched out, so I gave them more dimension and added some layers.
I added some snowflake brads and some adhesive jewels. I printed out the small snowflakes on the paper before beginning the sketching process.
I also used my embossing ink pen in the Silhouette and went over the sketch lines for the large snowflakes, her hair and the silver in her dress. I then used a transparent opal embossing powder, because glitter makes everything better.
I used a combination of pen types; Sharpies, Silhouette Sketch Pens, and Bic Mark-It ink pens.
It took a few passes to get everything right, and I had the hardest time figuring out how I wanted the eyes.
This project was really fun and I can’t wait to find something else to sketch!
