Christmas Shaker Card

I was browsing Instagram for some fun ideas for shaker cards and I stumbled across this beautiful card and I knew I wanted to re-create it for Christmas. Using the software for my Brother Scan'N'Cut I created an appropriate number of squares, positioned them and added my letters. I've made a German and English version and if you like them you can download them below.

I cut the panels out of white cardstock and adhered a large piece of acetate behind the windows (you don't want to know how many cards I had to throw away because I 1) didn't include acetate and only noticed it after I applied tons of foam tape and 2) applied in on the wrong side...). Then I used a ton of foam tape to put around the whole window frame so nothing can fall out. Because I wanted to have several shaker windows I also put foam horizontally between the windows. 

And then it was time to fill the shakers. I had a lot of tiny stars that I bought last year around Christmas and I was happy to have found something to put them to use.
