Good morning crafty friends

In the above magazine, issue 179, you will find a kit to make shaker cards

And, would you believe, when I picked up the magazine to check the issue number for today's blog, I realised I'd used the same papers and cat that the magazine was showing on the front cover!  I only had the kit on my worktable and magazine was in another room

The snowballs at the bottom of the window aren't included in the kit

I used a distress ink around the window and down the right side of the card.  Iced snow glitter was added to the middle and bottom of the window

The sequins are visible, mostly at the bottom

It's worth noting that the foam tape, included in the kit, left a lot to be desired.  It is so sticky  and stretches when you are trying to remove it from the cover sheet that I gave up in the end and cut my own to size.  If  you are considering buying this magazine, or have already bought it, please let me know what the tape was like for you

  • Papercraft Essentials Issue 179
  • vintage photo distress oxide ink - Ranger
  • iced snow glitter - Creative Expressions
  • snowballs - The Works
Until tomorrow

Hello everyone After much heart and soul searching I have finally made the decision to close Poppyfield Card Crafts blog and YouTube channel...
