Christmas Jar Shaker

I stamped these adorable little jars from Clearly Besotted and sort of got caught up in the flow of creative vibes and before I knew it I had a Christmas shaker card. It had started out intending to be 3 gift tags.....

There is a video on my YouTube Channel. Mrs H's Crafty Corner It is another video using the new format of voice over so please let me have your options, it is all constructive, do not feel you have to hold back.

Cardmaking Supplies
Clearly Besotted Festive Filler Stamps
Paper Discovery Build A Card Panel Dies
Foam Tape
Coloured Sequins
Green card
Red Card base A4
Torn Rectangle Nesting Dies
Distress ink in Chipped Sapphire, Mowed Lawn, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries

Cardmaking Tutorial 

Using the paper Discovery die set I cut the large rectangle in the green card, I then cut the panel down the middle. But the cut outs to one side as you need them later.

Cut a second large rectangle the same size as the first in cream card.
I then laid the green one on top.of the cream one and glued the green panels you saved from earlier onto the cream card, lining up with the gaps they were cut from. Every 5th hole I left blank. 

Acetate was then adhered to the green panel, covering the holes.

Using foam tape I covered the cream panel to form 3 pockets. Using the space from the 5th panel which you have not used.

Each pocket was filled with different colour sequins.

The front was then glued onto the base. The two remaining die cuts were glued onto the acetate on the front of the card so that you can not see the foam tape below.
See the picture below

Using a torn rectangle nesting die, 3 panels of white card were cut and 2 jars stamped on each piece.

These were masked and each one coloured by blending distress ink, one is Festive Berries, one Mowed Lawn and the final one is Spiced Marmalade 
The images were then coloured with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

The shaker panel.was glued onto the red card base which had been cut too, 6 1/2 Inch by 9 1/4 Inch.
The 3 coloured panel were adhered with foam squares. 
A tiny torn rectangle was stamped used Chipped Sapphire and reads BE MERRY

Nuvo drops in Silver Moonlight and Ruby Slippers gives the card its finishing touches, along with some some flake stickers
