Festival of Trees Shaker Card - a CASE

This is a case from a card I saw on Pinterest which was originally posted on Stampin' Connection.  I haven't made a shaker card for a while so it was a lot of trial and error, but I finally got it.





After embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the On Point folder, I used a circle framelit to die cut a circle in the upper middle of the paper.
I made a larger circle for the image, which was in Whisper White. One tree was stamped using Garden Green ink before  the sky was created using Marina Mist and Pacific Point. Dazzling diamonds created snow on the ground.
On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, another tree was stamped and punched out using the coordinating tree punch.  This tree was attached slightly lower and overlapping the other tree.
I used 1/4" framing tape to build up the shaker, placed some stars (punchies from star border punch) in the middle, and attached a piece of window sheet on top.  The shaker unit was inserted in the "hole" in the front piece and a ring of dazzling diamond glimmer paper was glued to the top.

Stamps: Festival of Trees, Wondrous Wreath
Inks: Garden Green, Marina Mist, Pacific Point, White Acrylic Paint (non SU) for the snow
Papers: Garden Green, Whisper white, Dazzling diamonds glimmer paper
Accessories: On Point folder, Circles framelit, Window sheet, Small star punch, Tree punch, 1/4" framing tape (non SU)
