 I chose to create a cute shaker card using the Snowman & Gifts, and Reindeer & Birds clear stamp sets, and the die cut trees from the Reindeer die set.  Here is how the shaker card was created.

Start with a 6-inch card.

Use the Dotted Square and Fitted Square die sets to die cut seven narrow frames.  Die cut the Stitched frames them tape the Fitted frame inside leaving an even border all the way around and run through the die cutting machine again.

Die cut five large tree trunks using the Reindeer die set.   Cut 2 snow banks using the same die set.

Next you need to attach the tree trucks individually on one of the die cut square frames, attaching them so they are alternated when all the frames are attached together.

The picture above shows how you should have arranged the trees on the frames.

Die cut a blue piece of card stock using the largest die used for die cutting the frame.  All the white frames will be glued over this piece.  Use 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive to attach two of the frames that have a tree attached.  Attach one of the snowbanks, then attach two more frames with a tree, the other snow bank, then the last frame with a tree attach. 

Use the Snowman & Gifts stamp set and stamp the snowman.  Color with markers and die cut using the matching die set.  

Use the Reindeer & Birds clear stamp set and stamp the reindeeer.  Color with markers and die cut using the matching die set.

Attach the Snowman and Reindeer on top of the frames 

Pour in glitter or sequins inside the tree frame to create a shaker card.

Using the largest die used to cut the frames, die cut a piece of acetate and attach with 3mm clear double sided adhesive over the top of the frames.  

 Attach the last two  frames (that do not have trees attached) to build up the frame.

Attach the shaker square at the top of the card, using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Use the Holiday Cheer clear stamp set and stamp the sentiment using black VersaFine Ink.  Clear emboss the stamped sentiment.
