To get started, I cut a piece of cardstock to a square shape and die cut the center of it with the largest die from the Stunning Snowflake Thinlits. This left me with a large negative opening, perfect for a shaker card and I saved the actual die cut shapes for another project. I then added some machine stitching and inked the edges.


I then cut a piece of acetate just slightly smaller than the cardstock square and adhered it to the back side of the paper.


To create the shaker box I adhered strips of foam adhesive to the backside making sure there were no spaces or openings where the strips met. This ensures that the shaker filler won't be able to escape from the shaker box.


For the shaker filler, I used Distress Mica Flakes. These are perfect for adding a little shimmer and shine. Other options to use could be sequins, tiny jewels or seed beads.  To create the backside of the shaker, I stamped the word stamp from the Stripes and Holiday stamp set onto black cardstock with embossing ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then adhered this to the shaker box filled with the mica flakes.


After completing the shaker box portion of the card, I layered it onto two pieces of patterned paper from the 2019 Christmas 8x8 Paper Stash.

To create the sentiment, I used the Alphanumeric Shadow Upper Thinlits and die cut each of the letters three times from the gold metallic paper in the Metallic Kraft Stock. I then adhered the letters using double sided foam adhesive to give it a little dimension. Using the Stripes and Holiday Stamp Set I stamped and fussy cut "joy to the world" and layered it onto of the die cut letters.
