a frozen olaf

if you are a mother of little girls 
then you are like me 
and know all the words to "let it go" 
my kids (yes even the man-cub) 
have enjoyed frozen 
and love watching snippets of it on you tube
especially olaf
he is the best :)
 here is my ode to olaf.
i have done a shaker card 
with seed beads, snow flakes 
and sequins in the middle
 olaf is made using a variety of circles and ovals 
with the bird punch for his arms
 around the edges i have 
used some snowflake chain i had 
plus some buttons from my stash.
 the top i used some white ribbon with a heart charm and bakers twine 
and used an itty bitty banner framelit 
with a hand written sentiment 
(because i didn't have one small enough to fit in it that i liked lol)
 i embossed the window sheet 
with a snow flake design 
and used the leftovers as embellishments 
for the corners 
and added some pearls and diamantes to them
here's the shaker element of the card 
with an embossed cover and seed beads, 
sequins and snowflakes inside 
and in a large scallop circle shape

the idea for a shaker card was inspired by the challenge set by the just add ink girls 
and i figured it was quite a cool element 
to add to my olaf card

cheers ears

This is so much fun Clare - you've captured Oaf perfectly and the shaker adds the perfect fun element. Love all your layers of snowflakes. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

What a fabulous Olaf punch art! Great card - the embossed window sheet with the snowflakes suits your card perfectly. The colourful sequins look great too in the shaker! My daughter loves the movie Frozen and often breaks out in song which then gets the song stuck in my head.. let it go.. let it go.. (lucky for you - you don’t get to hear my actual singing!).
