Shimmery Shaker Ornament
by Sherry Hester

Hello everyone!  Sherry here with a fun shaker card for you today!  Shaker cards are such a blast to make, and this one comes with lots of glitter and glam!

Blue Shaker 3

I wanted a shimmery background for this card, so I decided to use the Starry Night Background die.  I cut a piece of card stock to 5" x 3.75", die cut the background, and then layered it onto a piece of double sided tape, which exposed the "sticky" on the open stars.  I poured light blue Glitter Ritz on the openings, achieving the shimmer I was looking for.  I then die cut the second largest ornament from the Drop Ornament Layers from the glittered piece.  The ornament that is cut out can be used for another card.

I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the glitter piece, then die cut another ornament from fun foam that was cut to slightly smaller than the glittered piece, and adhered that to the back of the that piece.  I gathered my sprinkles of beads, glass glitter and sequins, into the center of the card base, and then adhered the assembled front over the sprinkles to create the shaker portion.  I die cut all three of the Shimmering Snowflakes, plus one extra of the small one, from double sided tape, peeled off the top later, and covered the flakes with dark blue and gold glitter.  I did the same with the "Joy", and positioned them as shown.
