Let It Snow Shaker

We have our group meeting this weekend so I am starting my swaps! This is an ATC (Artist Trading Card). It is a mini shaker!
All supplies are Stampin' Up! except for the transparencies and the double sided foam tape. I stamped the image from Big on Christmas onto Shimmery White cardstock with Basic Black ink and then just the face portion again onto a piece of scrap of the same paper. I used the 3/4" circle punch to cut out the face portion of the snowman. I used snail adhesive and adhered a small square of transparency behind the opening. I used my SU markers to color in the Image and did just the nose on the scrap piece. I then stamped all over the main image with Pixie Pink Classic ink with Itty Bitty Backgrounds. I used the Ticket Corner punch on all four corners. I applied snail adhesive to the scrap piece and held it up against the main image to get it lined up right, and then pressed it down onto the main card of Pixie Pink Cardstock. I cut pieces of double sided foam tape and put it around the scrap image. Put a bit of Micro beads inside, added some more foam tape to the corners of the top piece and lined up over the scrap piece and pressed down to seal. I hope this makes sense you! If not, let me know! And you can get 10 trading cards from one sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock! Here's how!!!!! Cut two strips at 2.5" on the 11" side, and one strip at 3.5". Then cut the 2.5" strips at 3.5", and the 3.5" strip at 2.5". Easy huh!!!! And if you are layering, just trim your top layer 1/4" smaller!

I wish I could see the picture better. It looks so cute but I can't tell what you mean about the micro beads. TFS. ;)

Shannon said she wished she could see the picture better. Sorry...this is my new watermark and I am trying to get it to go to the bottom of the photo but am having problems! If you look at the one photo of the individual ATC, you can see the micro beads right under my watermark. The beads shake in the snowman's face!
