Just to shake things up a bit, I diverged from my usual art and made this cute holiday greeting shaker card. It reminds me of vintage snow globes, and it was a fun and easy project.

Tutorial How to Make a Holiday Shaker Card
Punch out the “Let it Snow” words and snowflakes from Gypsy Soul’s Let it Snow.
Apply embossing ink to the chipboard, cover the pieces with silver embossing powder and activate with a heat gun.
Cut two 5 1/8″ squares of decorative cardstock. In the cardstock that will serve as the front of your card, cut a 3 3/4″ circle.
Adhere a 4 7/8″ square of acetate (I keep my Sizzix packaging for projects like this) to the back side of the square with the circle cut into it.
Rub the back side of the acetate with a dryer sheet to help keep the glitter from sticking to the plastic. Place small pieces of foam adhesive near the edge of the acetate–this creates a raised area in which the glitter can move freely.
On the other square of cardstock, create a scene by adhering vintage style images and the three small embossed snowflakes.
Place glitter in the center of your scene and then sandwich it by adhering the two cardstock squares together.
Cut a small base for your shaker glove from decorative cardstock and adhere to the front of the card.
Adhere the entire unit to a 5 3/8″ card blank and your card is complete!
