Shaker displays and shake those Tic Tacs!!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm so happy to be sharing some new Christmas sets from Art Impressions with you!
The first set I used is called Christmas Cheer Set (Sku#4666).

Over at Art Impressions there's a fun challenge going on...

I made a fun shaker card perfect for any adult or child!  My first step was to cut the pieces for the Easel to hold it up and the front frame and background. Square Easel Die (Sku#4699)

Next I added the acetate to hold in my "shake" items.  I glued and taped it to be sure nothing snuck out. 

I added a triple layer of Scotch foam tape.  I need to make sure there was enough room between the acetate and background that all the little shake items could move around.

Then I added the beads and removed the tape backing.

I affixed the background paper and had this...ready to add my adorable Art Impressions image and sentiment. 

Look at those beautiful beads, sequins and baubles.

I colored the penguin and added foam dimensional tape to pop him up.

Here's the easel die that will support my sweet little Christmas scene.

Look at all those fun baubles that the CUTE, CUTE penguin has behind him.

I recently discovered the Marvy markers at Ai.  I'm loving them for adding detail to my copic coloring.


The other set I use was Holly Jolly Set (Sku#4667).
I saw something similar to this on Pinterest.  They took the snowman's tummy out to show the Tic Tacs.  What a cute little gift, right?
