Baby, It's Cold Outside

Hi, everyone!  I saw this fun free printable yesterday and thought it was adorable so I decided to make it into a shaker card!  I love that there's a bundled-up kitty with a cup of hot cocoa!

You can find the free printable at Mein Lila Park here.  I printed it and mounted on coordinating cardstock that I embossed with Darice Snowflake Background (thank you, Lisa!). I affixed a few hot-pink snowflake sequins and added tiny stars in silver, white, and hot pink for the shaker bits.

For the shaker frame, I used Memory Box Cross-Stitched Frame Borders and added a few of my new Memory Box Twilight Snowflakes.  Although it's not visible in the photo, I pressed the snowflakes into my Versamark pad and coated them with SU Dazzling Diamond glitter so they are quite sparkly in person.  I also added Poppystamps Curious Cat (retired) in hot pink!
