My Very First Shaker Card - Merry Christmas

This card was created for a fun challenge over at Cut it Up to use both non traditional Christmas colors and a shaped card other than a square or rectangle! Which was super fun because I'm a fan of the non traditional christmas colors, my white tree is decorated with pinks, blues, green and oranges! This was also my first attempt at a shaker card!! I didn't have any foam, which is traditionally used, so I just made a multi-layered frame with cardstock, here's what I did.

First I designed and cut out this image from miss kate cuttables. I cut out three background layers, two white and one transparency. I used the cricut design space to size and create the little frames to layer the shaker portion of the card. 5 layers worked for me. You could also just cut out one frame from some fun foam. And then cut the top chevron pattern.

On the white background layer I stamped some fun snowflakes and sentiments, before assembling the shaker card together with sequins and some flaked glitter. I then mounted the front of the card, onto a back white background layer by scoring and folding a flap on the back piece and adhering to the card.
