Die cut two large ovals from HCD1-7305 Ornate Ovals Die from white cardstock. On one of these ovals diecut an oval from the Eyelet Oval and Basics Small die set to create a frame, reserve oval. Diecut a slightly larger oval using the Eyelet Oval and Basics Large die set on clear cardstock, adhere white oval frame onto clear cardstock using Dries Clear glue.

Use a light hand to lightly shade the snow and sky with Manganese Blue ink. Adhere cabin scene oval onto Ornate Oval as the background of the shaker feature. Arrange foam strips along background oval being sure there aren’t any gaps, as this will need to securely hold the glitter we’ll place inside.
