There's A Whole Lot of 'Shakin" Going On

Hi All.

I hope you all had a pleasant and safe 4th of July.
Ours was uneventful except we had "drop ins"
all 3 days the hubby was home.
I was a bit annoyed by some of it as I have a ton to do
not only for design teams, but for a family cookout I am
hosting next Saturday...I mean it was crazy busy here!

So that brings me to my card I made today for
This week it is Christmas In July.
I made a shaker snow globe...that actually was very quick and easy.
I had to use the PDF file and cut it by hand.....
I just haven't had a minute to use/learn my Cricut Explore,
but Regina has great information on it on her site.
I plan to spend an entire day learning it after the cookout!
But. lucky for me, these files not only come in SVG, but PDF as well!

I used  Impression Obsession dies
DIE217-E for the pine trees
Die117-C for the deer
 for the inside, 
along with a bit of "snow" glitter.
Can't you just imagine how many different scenes you can create with this?
I can hardly wait to make more!
The cut file comes with an entire set of files to make
a mitten, tree, snowman, the snowglobe, gift box , stocking, bulb, and bell.
It is called Christmas Shape Shaker Cards Set.....
you can also purchase them individual.

on the 7th all the designers will have their Christmas In July projects
all in one place to inspire you!
Just by leaving a comment, you could win 3 cut files of your choice!

Entering the following challenges:
Impression Obsession .... Christmas In July
Craft-Dee Bowz ....ATG With A Handmade Bow
Ooh La La #184 .... All That Glitters
Perfectly Rustic #51 .... Something That Moves
Sparkle N Sprinkle  ....ATG/Glitter

That's the cutest snow globe shaker card! Love the scene inside and your little accent on the ribbon is a great finish. I love folks dropping in but it's hard when you've got your time all planned out to the last minute and, believe me, I sure know how that is! Good luck getting ready for your cookout!
