Holly shaker card

Hello there. It is Amy here again. This month I decided that I would show as best I could with pictures this easy shaker card. I usually do not like to work with glitter because I usually make a huge mess with it, but I wanted to try my hand at this card.  I painted the Sheena Paint Fusion - Holly and then cut it out. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I cut out a 5x5 inch card, rounded the edges with my corner chomper, and inked the edges of the card with Fired Red Distress Ink.  Then I cut the striped background at 4.5 inches and adhered it to the red card. I cute out the holly card stock at 5 inches.

I tried to show you how the "shaker" card works but it doesn't look as pretty in the picture. I cut the acetate at 4.5 inches and the holly paper at 5 inches. I then applied some foam tape to the edges of the holly paper. I added some Martha Stewart glitter on top of the Holly inside the card. Then I put the whole card together. I made sure that the glitter was secure in the card and would not make a mess everywhere. It actually worked and I could not believe it. This is the first time I have ever done this and I think I might make some more. I hope you like it and you should try it. It really is easy.
