SSC221 Vintage Gift Givers Girl

I finally finished a card for the Stamping 411 Sketches on the same week so I can provide a link.  Yeah!  Above is the card I made from the Saturday Sketch Challenge #221.   

This is my first Shaker Card; I had to use the Gift Givers Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I just love the image of the little girl...I think it is snow.  I can't believe I am thinking of snow already.  The color combo of Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist, Soft Suede, and Naturals White. 

The card base is Natural White and with a layer of Pink Pirouette that was run through the Big Shot with the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I picked the Marina Mist pattern from the Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper for the next layer, I think it gives it a nice vintage feel; I backed it with a layer of Soft Suede.  Oh course all these were sponged with Soft Suede Ink.  Before attaching the pieces I sprayed with the Homemade Shimmer Mist made with the Frost White Shimmer Paint.  To give the pieces a little extra shimmer, it is snow right? 

Have you not made a shaker card?  Not sure how?  Let me know by posting a comment and I will get some pictures done to show you.  I am still working on a tutorial on the Fabric Flowers headbands. 

Thanks for looking,
