Peaceful Scene Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends~  It's with much sadness that I announce that I'll be stepping down from the Elizabeth Craft Designs design team.  It's been such a fun year working with ECD design team and I wanted to send a special thanks to Els & Joep, Joset and Frances for letting me be part of this amazing team for a whole year.  Life has just gotten crazy busy for me and it's taking me down a different path that doesn't allow as much time in my craft room as many of you who visit me may have noticed.    
I thought the sentiment on this card was very fitting to let everyone at Elizabeth Craft Designs know how much I'll miss them.

 I had a scrap of an ink blended background left over from a previous project that was just a little too small so I cut two snowdrifts using the snowdrift die from the Reindeer set and added Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the top edges and then adhered them to the background.

Using an A2 size piece of Christmas Holidays Paper Pack from Moda Scrap,  I cut one of the Stitched Stars out of the center, saving the cut star for a future project.

  I adhered a piece of clear acetate to the back of the cut printed paper using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  This particular acetate has a protective blue film on both sides.  It really is clear once the blue film is removed as you'll see in the following pictures.

  Using foam tape,  I made it into a shaker window by adding sequins and seed beads.
I cut one of the deer from the Reindeer set out of Kraft cardstock and added some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to the outside edges and antlers.
 I Stamped and die cut the sentiment from Sentiments 1 Celebration and Sentiments 1 Celebration Dies and mounted it to the window using foam tape.
