Merry Christmas Shaker Card

Today I have a card featured over at A Blog Named Hero. They are hosting a month long Christmas celebration with lots of guest designers and prizes too.
To join in the celebrations, I thought I'd create a super sparkly shaker card filled with sequins.
To create my card, I used Hero Arts Fancy Cuts Christmas dies, cutting the words from some pretty Bo Bunny patterned paper which I had already die cut with my favourite stitched frame die. After backing this with some acetate, I filled the window with a ton of silver and clear sequins, then adhered it over some glitter paper. The result - a super sparkly interactive card that's perfect for a lover of shiny things. :)

This was so quick and easy to create - you could definitely throw together a pile of these in an afternoon! And what a fun afternoon it would be. :)

Be sure to head on over to A Blog Named Hero to check out the prizes on offer from Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp and enter the giveaway.
Bye for now.
I've had a couple of people ask for more detailed instructions. Hope this makes it clearer:
Die cut a frame from the pink paper.
Die cut 'Merry Christmas' from the pink paper.
Stick acetate to the back of the pink paper.
Stick the little tiny pieces from the letters 'e' and 'a' onto the top of the acetate.
Turn the pink paper over onto your work surface.
Put foam tape on the back of the pink paper to create a window.
Put sequins into the window.
Stick the glitter card on top.
Does this help??

So pretty, Lucy! I was wondering how you managed to create a shaker with the die cut sentiment. You're a crafty genius!

I love this card, and I really want to make it, but I have read through your description at least 20 times, and I cannot figure it out. Could you be a little bit more specific about which paper you cut the letters from, where you put the acetate, if you glued the letters onto the acetate. I am horribly confused, and hate to admit it.
