Colorful Christmas Tree Shaker Card

Hi everyone! :o)

My third post today... If you missed previous two, just scroll down or follow direct links here and here. This is also my 400 post! :o)

My second card today is this Colorful Christmas Tree Shaker Card.

For this card, I went with a same design as on my card I shared earlier today, here.

I cut a designer paper panel slightly smaller than a card base, cut out a triangle window on it and glued acetate sheet on the window.

I made my own shaker mix from various sequins and droplets, filled the window with the shaker mix and glued the panel on the card base.

Lastly, I glued a white panel inside the card to make it thicker and more stable, because front of the card was quite heavy and card couldn't stand.

Card dimensions: 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4")

List of supplies:
  • Create a Smile 'Snow Dance' kit
    • designer paper
    • sequins
  • droplets from Create a Smile 'Beach Party' kit
  • green sequins (unknown manufacturer)
  • white cardstock paper
  • acetate sheet
  • foam sheet 3 mm thick
  • double sided strong adhesive tape
  • Fiskars High Precision Personal Paper Trimmer
  • acrylic block (102 mm x 102 mm)
  • bone folder
  • ruller
  • eraser
