Another Summer Shaker

I did tell you there'd be another one didn't I! I mean, another shaker card using Summer Driggs freebies. A little different than the card below as it opens up the other I didn't do that by accident! Just thought it looked better that way seeing I made the frame a tiny bit smaller! (I couldn't actually make it any bigger as the Crunchy Nut Cornflakes packet, which I used to make the frame, still had some Crunchy Nuts Cornflakes in it!)
It's almost the same as the card below, only as you can see, I used the green dotty paper instead of the blue (I'm definitely going to use the blue dotty paper for Christmas cards, it'll make great snow! Christmas!?? I'm thinking Christmas in June!! That must be a first! (Added Edition: Gez had a great idea of adding snowflakes in a Christmas Shaker....not real snowflakes....)
I used a Penny Black Stickeroo again, stuck him on acetate first, then fixed him to the card with a dollop of silicone glue. Added a smidgen of Stickles Glitter, oh and rounded off the corners with my corner punch. Good little tool, one I recommend, a corner punch! I bought mine locally but they are easily found on line. You can get them with different pattens, but I haven't got one of those.
Short post today, as I'm in the middle of making my Mum's Birthday Card. "Happy Birthday Mum!!" And we're all going out to celebrate! Catch you all later, thanks for stopping by!
