I've seen shaker cards all over the Internet for the last few weeks, so I thought I'd make my Christmas window a shaker card. I cut a panel of white card slightly smaller than the base and cut out the window shape (I've kept the white window frame for use later). I put the panel onto the card base and lightly traced round the inside of the window frame. I also cut a frame in grey which I attached to the white panel with double sided tape. I cut a piece of acetate larger than the window and attached it to the tape. I cut some snowy design paper to size and adhered it to the card base and stamped the trees. On white card I stamped the little house, embossed with clear powder, cut it out and coloured the windows and doors. I adhered this flat to the card. Next I cut a white hill and adhered that flat. I finished off with a large tree right in the foreground. I put dimensional tape all the way round the stamped image (making sure there were no gaps) and finished by adding some glitter and sequins. I put some dimensional tape at the corners of the window panel and a placed it on top of the foam ring. And the shaker card works!!!! Yea! On the inside I cut a mat layer of grey and stamped some more trees and a sentiment on the white panel. Here's a close up of the window - you can really see the sparkle and shimmer of the glitter and sequins.
