Frosty Palette Shaker Card

Icy Blue, Pale Pink and Snow White

They may not be traditional holiday colors, but the frosted pastels in the Holly Jolly paper collection have inspired me to put together a snow themed card with Candy Apple accents.  This card has a lot going for it with color, texture, pattern and shine.  Even so, I decided to really go all out and add an interactive shaker element.  I can’t wait to show you how easy it is to put this impressive card together!
