Here is a card for the challenge at CAS Christmas, which is simply entitled Snowflake

For my card I decided to make a shaker card to use some beautiful jewels, sent to me as a prize. I cut the Memory Box snowflake from the front panel of my card and put a piece of OHP acetate behind the aperture. I cut two snowflakes and layered them over the acetate, into the space on the front panel. I then surrounded the shape with little dimensional pads on the reverse side of the panel and dropped the jewels into the gap.I always used to get into a pickle trying to place the window accurately onto my card front once it was filled with jewels or sequins or whatever, so now I put another piece of acetate over the shape to keep the shakey bits contained. Then I can turn it over to place accurately on the card front. I placed a piece of  a print from a stencil background I made some time ago behind the snowflake to add just a little interest!
It was a little fiddly, but fun to do!
