Santa Stache - Shaker card

Hello again!

For my second last post for this year I would like to share my very first shaker card! It was easier than I thought and the effect is to say the least... DAZZLING!

I am going to list the products that I used and then show the steps in photographs! Enjoy!

106578 Real Red A4 cardstock (card base), AC, p180
106576 Old Olive A4 cardstock (layering), AC, p180
135821 Santa & Co. DSP (some more layering), HC, p29
135035 Santa Stache stamp set ( stamp twice, one to die cut the mustache and one to colour and fussy cut the whole image), HC, p18
106549 Whisper White A4 cardstock (inside and stamping), AC, p183
121688 Basic Black A4 cardstock (frame around circle), AC, p183
132178 Silver Foil sheets (star)
132708 Memento Ink Tuxedo Black ( for image and sentiment) VERY important to use this with Blendabilities)
130995 Cherry Cobbler Assortment Blendabilities (hat) AC, p212
129370 Skin Tone Assortment Blendabilities (face), AC, p212
102283 Versamark ink, AC, p210
101930 Iridescent Ice embossing powder (for hat trimmings, beard and moustache), AC, p213
114323 Window Sheets , AC, p192 Cut two 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" pieces
133723 Star Framelits, AC, p231 
130911 Circle Framelits, AC, p231, I used the 2 3/4" circle and the 3 1/4" ( the bigger one for the black frame)
133741 Mustache Framelit AC, p230

Layer the DSP and Old Olive and cut a circle from the center with circle framelits.

Mark with a pencil on the card base where the circle should be cut (centered on the card base) and the cut.

Cut circle using Circle framelits.

Do not adhere yet! First the shaker must be assembled.

Adhere 1 of the window sheet pieces with  2-Way Glue Pen (100425)on the inside of the layered DSP and Old Olive.

Use Double sided foam tape around the circle on top of the first Window sheet layer.

Add some glitter and Sequins ( any will do) and then adherte the second piece of Window sheet over the glitter and sequins. This piece is adhered to the foam tape.

Add some foam tape to the corners and adhere to your card front.

 Add your Basic Black circle frame and your finished Santa.
 Stamp your sentiment on the inside.

I hope this all makes sense! Let me know!

Thank you for passing by!
