Shaker Shadowbox Card - Christmas in July

Continuing with Crafter's Castle challenge OPTONAL theme of Christmas in July, sponsored by SheepSki Designs, I have used this adorable image "Snow Happy" to make a shaker shadowbox card.


If this style shadowbox card looks familiar it is because I did a tutorial on making it back in January (link below).  But I wanted to make a shaker card so I came up with a way to combine the two and I love how it came out.

Center Pop-Up Card - Tutorial

Center Pop-Up Card Tutorial
I have been wanting to make one of these for a long, long time!  It was inspired by some old cards I have for holding Polaroid pictures (I know....vintage right...LOL).  But after some measuring and a little trial and error, I finally got it!!!

These cards measure 5 1/2" wide and 4 1/4" high 
when folded so they fit perfectly in an A2 size envelope.



I have a YouTube video tutorial on how to make this style card and you can watch it by CLICKING HERE 

In the near future I will be making a tutorial on the same style card 
BUT it will be 4 1/4" wide and 5 1/2" high.

Winnie the Pooh die cuts where made with Cricut Cartridge "Pooh and Friends".  All die cuts on the other card were made with unnamed dies and my Cuttlebug.

If you like this card please watch the video and leave me a comment and a thumbs up :)
