Transparent Shaker Card

Hello Readers!

For today I am playing along with Crafty Gals Corner, If You Give a Crafter a Cookie, and Simon Says Stamp! This card is packing quite a punch tonight. Here it is, enjoy!!

The entire front panel is the shaker. I used a metal stencil and added texture
paste on the acetate.

The shaker elements are sandwiched between layers of acetate.
The shaker elements consist of punched silver
snowflakes, sequins, and glitter.
Showing through the window is the patterned paper backdrop.
I like the double white matting adding a bit of texture.
This is the shadow of the image showing through onto the patterned paper.
It features a magnificent ombre effect with a touch of texture
Usually I make a mess when creating shaker cards but in this case the force was with me (had to it!). It took a bit of thinking but in the end I think it all worked out. What saved me this time was a sticker maker I just bought. I made the foam between the layers acetate into a sticker. It proved to be much easier then traditional glue.

Well that should do it for me.. Thank you so much for spending time with me!! I do hope you enjoyed yourself and I hope to see you soon.. Take care,

All the best,
Shawna

Wow, Shawna!
It is beautiful and unusual card. I love the ombre background. Miraculously fits with the radio boxes of snows and stars. You are a great creator.

This is such a fabulous shaker card! Love that the whole front is the shaker with the background actually being the inside of the card. So many wonderful bits inside as well.

Thank you for joining us at Crafty Gals Corner for our Anything Goes challenge.
