Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop: Snowman Shaker Card
Hello, Friends! Don’t you just love this Snowman Shaker Card? It’s my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop. Welcome to the hop! You should be coming here from Ginny’s gorgeous blog. The Winter Woodland Ribbon Assortment is extra gorgeous this month. I liked them all so much that I ended up using three selections on this sweet Snowman Shaker Card. Take a peek:
Would You Like to Build a Snowman Shaker Card?
This 5″ x 7″ top fold shaker card is basically one layer of Stamperia’s Classic Christmas paper layered with ribbons and topped with a Reneabouquets Snowflake Frame and Beautiful Board. Here’s how to build the card front:
- First, create a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base from kraft cardstock.
- Then machine stitch a 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ panel of Stamperia paper to a slightly larger panel of deep red cardstock.
- Place 1/2″ Scor-tape along the bottom edge of this panel, then adhere Sherry Diamond Satin Ribbon over it.
- Next, place a 1/4″ strip of Scor-tape in the center of the Sherry Diamond Satin Ribbon and adhere a strip of the 3/8″ Bird Print Satin over it.
- Now heat emboss the Reneabouquets Decorative Snowflake Frame with WOW! Dazzling Diamonds Embossing Powder.
- Then die cut a circle from clear cardstock and adhere to the back of the frame.
- Next, place 3 rows of 1/8″ foam strips on the back of the frame.
- Place your sequin mix in the area where you plan to adhere the frame. Then remove the tape liner and press the frame in place.
- Place foam tape on the back of Jack’s Snowman Beautiful Board and adhere to the shaker frame.
The Bow Cluster
Use your Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to tie a 3″ double loop bow from Sherry Diamond Satin Ribbon. Adhere in the left hand corner of the snowflake frame. Tie jingle bells together with White Iridescent Metallic string and adhere to the knot of the bow. Then tie a double loop bow with the string and adhere over it. Top with a poinsettia and holly leaves.
Finish the card by adhering a chipboard sentiment over the ribbon border. Then adhere flat back pearls around the snowflake frame.
A Peek Inside
I was on the tail end of this pretty paper collection, so I had to do some creative paper piecing inside this card. This led to a new style of pocket on the top and a layered pocket flap on the bottom.
Here’s a look at the goodies inside this pretty card.

What a gorgeous holiday card Kathy. Love the beautiful design papers and that gorgeous flower and bow cluster. Have a very Merry Christmas!
You make the best Shaker Cards Ever!! I want to build a Snowman!!
Kathy, without fail I look forward to viewing your blog for the RRR hops charming entries; they always take my breath away. This one is a Christmas card with all of the happiness of Christmas being expressed. Such a feeling of nostalgia with the Reneabouquets’ Jack’s Snowman and isn’t it funny the weather forecast is for a Nor’easter. Now folks some of you on the East coast will have a chance to make this scene in real life!
Oh My Goodness, What an adorable shaker card. The image is so sweet and I love that snowflake frame. Beautiful work my friend.
Loving this sweet folio. The snowflake die cut frame is perfect to frame the snowman! I like that you used a variety of ribbons and stretched your paper by creating a different pocket. I’m always impressed by your creativity!
shaker cards are so fun. i love the image
and who doesent love goodies….much love to yo
Gorgeous shaker card! I love the embellishment on the front with the bow and greenery, and the buttons are awesome for the shaker! Love that idea… I have lots of buttons!
Your card is fantastic!
This is incredible! I love the little bells and the snowman! WOW
So gorgeous! Love your shaker card. Actually it is a gift. Great use of the ribbons. Edwina Brown
Love your shaker card! tigo
Your shaker card really is stunning and I love the way you showcased the ribbons. Anyone would be honored to receive this gorgeous card. Happy Holidays!
Please add me to your Christmas card list…LOL Such a lovely little treat package, Kathy. LOVE that deep Crimson ribbon from the assortment.
Everything you do is so very special, Kathy, and simply a joy to look at (can’t even imagine how the recipient must feel! lol). Shakers have always been my favorite type of card and this one is so cute with the button shaker mix. Love the birdies and snowman – two more of my favorite things. The snowflake frame is really stunning. And then there’s the gorgeous ribbon & all the pretty layers. Beautiful perfection! Have a very Merry Christmas!!
You’ve created a lovely snapshot of a vintage Christmas. LOVE the pieced pockets…very festive look and a very creative way to use those scrap pieces! “Necessity is the mother of invention”…so true!! I’m definitely going to purchase more of this Stamperia collection before they stop printing it. That little post card is so pretty!! Stitching adds another wonderful detail to this vintage project. Nice decision to layer kraft and that deep red. Only recently have I come to appreciate shades of turquoise and red together…have no idea what took me so long. Whenever I add jingle bells to a project, I imagine the mail person breaking into a smile as the card is placed in the mailbox! Looks like this gorgeous RRR collection was designed to coordinate with this paper collection…nice! Beautifully designed and constructed project, Kathy!
I would say you outdid yourself, Kathy, but you keep doing that!! So so so pretty! I have some winter birthday people to send a card to inspired by this one! Thank you!
So festive. Merry Christmas Kathy. Your lovely creations have made getting through this plague must easier. Be merry, be bright and above all be safe. Things will be better next Christmas. xxx
So beautiful! I am always impressed with your creativity and skill. You never disappoint! The ribbon set this month has a vintage slant that complements your style beautifully. Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your posts all year.
Fabulous shaker card. Love your bow . I am getting a bow it all for Christmas. Now to learn how to use it.
The beauty of a winter scene captured here. I’ve used this same paper to make your slim-line card box. Gosh, Kathy, you delight me every day. Thank you 🙂 Charlotte
What a delightful card, Kathy! The RRR for this month is so wintery…your card (and these ribbons) are just the thing for post-Christmas winter season cards. I’m thinking January and February birthdays (have a few in my family). Something special like your card is what is needed during these stressful times. tfs-stay well. Hugs.
Kathy, you showcase the RRR so well.
I love the warmth and simplicity of this card! The farmyard/barn just draw you in, and the ribbon brings it all together. Another card that encourages me to spin off of it. I don’t have snowman, but can think of other focal pieces that would work…just love your ideas Kathy!
Yet another masterpiece Kathy. Love the shaker with all the buttons. I am getting pretty tired of the rains up here and wouldn’t mind making a snowman. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your amazing talents.
So cute. Love the vintage images, ribbon cluster and buttons in the shaker.
Absolutely beautiful! You are such an inspiration.
Such a darling fun card! I luv the nostalgia it represents! Adorable outside and inside! You always know what to put where …as you can tell …I luv it ….RRR, bows, shaker and all! Gorgeous papers! Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Suzy Q
Another stunning make Kathy – I love love this layout very much and the bow is stunning along with the all bits and bobs you added to your art! Bravo! TFS
Kathy, this is such a darling shaker card! Who doesn’t love a snowman? That precious little girl building her snowman is so sweet. This paper collection is hands down one of the prettiest ever and it goes so well with the RRR! The inside of your card is so beautiful with all of those nostalgic images. I LOVE it! Thank you for sharing! Hugs
So so cute – have never made a shaker card!
I love how the shaker isn’t the whole card! It’s incorporated into the card. Love that!! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!!
