Wishing You Christmas Cheer!

And I'm back with ANOTHER Christmas project! For this one, I wanted to try a shaker card. I've seen them all over lately and I have yet to try it. 

It seems like it'd be something I could take on for the challenge over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons this month! it is!
I LOVE how it turned out! The card is a standard A2 sized card. To make the shaker window, I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Photo Frames 1 Cutting File. (I did change the size of the opening a little bit within Silhouette Studio to create the size I needed.) I added some clear acetate to the opening and popped it up on some foam tape.
Inside my window I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birch Tree Trunks Cutting File. I was a little hesitant at first, because for as small as I needed them (and the fact I hadn't used my Cameo in over 5 months) I didn't know if they would cut very well. Well, look how great the Cameo did! For the sentiment and snow flakes, I used the Pretty Cute Stamps Christmas Cheer stamp set. :)

This adorable little snowman is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Sweet Snowman Cutting File. I used Silhouette Studio to hide his face so I could add a little peachy face to him!
 I added some different colored sequins from Neat & Tangled and sealed it all up!
