Woohoo my very first shaker card. Actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. I had a set of  triple panel cards that had a window, but still had the flaps so I just cut them off. I put a clear plastic piece that did have gems stuck to it, attached it to the window. Then I added foam mounting tape tightly around the window. Added some lilac paper to the back panel, and an image from Pixie Dust Studio. I then added some chunky glitter to the inside and closed the panel to seal it in. I put in too much glitter but its my first time so whatever lol. This glitter will be great for a Christmas card, cant wait to try that. The ticket is from Hobby Paleis
