 Every time I make a shaker card, it's snow themed. I just can't seem to think past SNOW! So here it is my snow shaker card! I used the Handmade Snowflakes set to heat emboss the white snowflake in the center of the shaker. 

 I found some pretty white ribbon in my stash... if I colored just the back of it with the Copic, the white criss cross embellishment remained white. 

The sentiment is from the Star of Bethlehem set, and was the perfect thing for my snow card! I did use a pre-packaged shaker pouch instead of creating my own from scratch. I used Martha Stewart's Tinsel Glitter to fill the pouch.
