Winter Joy Shaker Card

This card used acetate, glitter, and foam tape to create a 3D window.

1. Cut a piece of cardstock for your card base, here white was used.

2. Cut a piece of cardstock for the background, here I use Soft Sky, then stamp a background of images onto this cardstock.

3. Cut another piece of cardstock (here I used Soft Sky again) for the window piece, cut a piece of acetate and a piece of neutral cardstock ( here I used white) slightly smaller than the window piece.

4. Then punch out a "window" in the colored cardstock, and adhere the acetate with glue or tape.

5. Cut pieces of foam tape, adhere to back side of window/acetate cardstock, be sure that all foam tape edges touch each other. You don't want the glitter to leak out when you shake the card.

6. Sprinkle glitter onto the acetate and set aside. (When placed on the finished card it will look like snow inside the window)

7. Stamp an image on the neutral cardstock so that it will show through the window. Adhere this piece of the cardstock to the foam tape to complete the "shaker window".

8. Adhere the window cardstock to the back ground cardstock.

9. Add ribbon to the completed background piece and then adhere to the cardstock card base.

10. If desired, add glitter embellishments to the finished card. I added icicles under my window and trimmed JOY in glitter.
