Good Thursday morning and Happy July 4th.  Welcome to the Impression Obsession “What’s Shakin’?” design team challenge.

For my project I used the Small Fir Tree, Shaker Circle Frames, Twig Wreath (pine) and Circle Shake It Pouches.

I started by stamping the trees with peeled paint ink and sponging in the clouds using the ink blending tool and stormy sky. I hand cut the tree scene out in a large enough circle to cover the opening of the frame to seal in the glitter.

I attached ATG adhesive to the outer edge of the shaker pouch and attached the shaker frame over it. I applied ATG adhesive to the outer border of the tree scene circle, poured a generous amount of glitter on the inside of the pouch and attached the scene to the back side of the pouch sealing in the glitter.

I attached the snowflake designer paper and ground snow layer to the card base.  I attached mounting tape to the back of the frame scene and attached it on the card base.

I attached several sprigs of the pine from the twig wreath to the frame and finished with the white multi loop bow
