Holly Jolly Shaker Card

I have been having fun with new dies from Memory Box and a new obsession with shaker cards. I have never had much success with shaker cards, but I think I have it figured out now. I used two layers of thin cuts of mounting tape around the square frame cut with QuicKutz dies. The "holly jolly Christmas" die cut sentiment from Memory Box was attached to acetate with glue and the jewels. I added "Vintage Glass Glitter Shards" from Art Institute Glitter for sparkly shakers. Here is a closer look at the shaker glass shards:
I am entering this card in the Merry & Bright challenge at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge and the Holiday challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room.
