Shaker in the snow
For the shaker area, I started by diecutting a snowflake. I took the negative leftover, cut it in a circle, and that is the bottom of the shaker area. I used a circle of fun foam to create the "box." It has blue and silver sequins in it, covered by a circle of acetate framed with a navy scalloped circle. (You know that saying about mistakes being an excuse to embellish? Yeah, I had a glue problem so I added the snowflake brad.)
The snowflake-printed strip is actually a sample of wrapping paper (stashed away since some long-ago PTA wrapping paper drive), and the silver paper behind it is recycled from some envelope. So, it's a blue card and a "green" card.
