Flourishes Christmas in July!

For my Christmas card I used Vintage Postcard and created a shaker card. I used the instructions from the SCS tutorial here. I began by stamping my image twice, first in black ink then a second time with embossing ink and embossed with gold. I cut the center out of the gold embossed image and used the frame to adhere my acetate to. I colored the other image with Copics and used that as the background. I filled the center with Martha Stewart iridescent glitter flakes and some silver microbead mix from Judikins before adhering it with dimensional adhesive tape to the frame.
The background mat was made using the Spellbinders die Fleur De Lis rectangles. I cut it out of a piece a patterned paper with stylized snowflakes on it from MME. The sentiment was stamped on a banner die cut from the Ribbon Banner set which I then ran a gold leaf pen around the edge to tie it into the frame. The card base is cardstock that looks like parchment which I’ve had in my stash for ages.
Below you can see the acetate and see how the front is popped up from the back and the glitter inside.
