Option add-on products include:


The sheets come in two different sizes, and are perfect for your shaker card creations, and anything else your creative heart thinks of! Each pack contains 20 sheets, and are available in either 5 x 6  or 3 x 4.75 sizes.

I know, right?!  TONS of goodness but remember, the Main Kit is available for a limited time only…when it’s gone, it is gone! 

I have 2 cards to share with you today:
I had so much fun crafting up a storm with all the goodies.  Let’s start with the shaker card:
We’ll start from the bottom and work our way up!  The base is from the Midnight Mixed Layering Paper pack.  The celdon is from the Foliage Mixed Layering Paper pack.  I used the Snowglobe die, Acetate sheet + Buttons Galore Shaker mix from the Main kit.  GENIUS to add the Acetate Sheets!!!  The base has been cut using Birch paper and I wrapped some twine around it.  All the stamping and die cutting is from the optional add-on, Winter Time Fun stamps + Frame Cuts.  The sentiment has been embossed in Hero Arts White.

That little raccoon is just so stinkin’ CUTE.

Next up is my Let it Snow card:
The cardstock is from the Midnight Mixed Layering Paper pack.  Aren’t the Skylines Fancy Dies awesome?!  I cut the bridge with Birch paper…love the added texture it adds to the overall design.  The sentiment is from the the Main Kit.
