It Sure Doesn't Feel Like Winter. It Must Be the Christmas In July Blog Hop, Day 3

Welcome back for Day 3 of the Christmas in July Hop hosted by Lisa of Scrapping with Lisa handmade with love. If you came from April of Curls and Grins, then you are in the right spot.

Here is today's project:
I made this shaker card, which is a first for me. I bought the plastic window frames a few months ago and I haven't used them until now. Directions didn't even come with the package, so I have created my card from scratch.

I wanted to keep the cuts very simple and focus on enclosing the materials in the shaker window without the glitter escaping. 

I have figured it out! Now I can share with you!
I will do a pictorial later this week with step-by-step directions.  

I used Wild Card cartridge and cut the "stitched" card base at 4 3/4". The angel was cut at 1 1/4" and the stars were cut at 1 1/2". Both cuts were from Joys of the Season.
 Can you see the gold glitter inside the window?
 I cut a liner to help seal the shaker window.

  17. Hi, Georgianna! I thought I left a comment here earlier but I didn't see it -- maybe I forgot to type in that confirmation word or something; I sometimes find I do forget about that.
