Snowing Shaker Cards with tutorial

Hi Crafters

Today I have some shaker cards I made for my craft stall last week.

I used globe cards and pictures from
craftwork cards, circle dies, gems, sentiments,
Warren and Lola collection
These shake card have been
featured on Craftwork cards Julie's Love on craftwork Cards Blog, link here
Thank you

My cards

My tutorial
(If you use this tutorial please knowledge where you saw it please)

How I made my shaker cards

Step One
Using two circle dies one 9.5 cms and 7.5 cms sizes
Place one inside the other and cut out by white card
by using your die cutting machine.
Also cut using the large size die with acetate

 Step Two
Stick the circle acetate to the inside of the
white card circle with glue
(you may need to use anti static sack on the
acetate to stop static with the shaved ice)

On the inside edge on top of the glued down  acetate add
the foam pads very tightly together
Place the foam pads all around the whole circle

Step Three
Add the shaved ice
(about teaspoon or 4-5 pinches of shaved ice)
Remove the foam pad tab to show the sticky part
Place the picture face down onto the foam circle

Step Four
As you can see below the picture now has it's snowing appearance
Shake it to distribute the shave ice
(you may have some stuck in the centre)
shake and tap to move around.
Stick this down onto your card or like below on the globe card

Complete your card has you wish
I have added gems, trees embellishment and sentiment
