Horses with Shaker

     This card is inspired by a "How to Make a Sunrise Background" using masking video done by Theresa Momber. I had to use different ink colors since I didn't have any of the inks she used. My sunrise doesn't have as much red in it as Theresa's.
     I wanted to make a shaker card. I started with Melanie Muenchinger's "Branching Out" stamp set for the background. The horses and sentiment are from Theresa Momber's "Country Roads 2" stamp set. 
     I made the shaker part using two pieces of acetate. I used a fuse to make a 3 sided pocket, poured in brown PVC glitter from Michael's, then used the fuse to close the fourth side. This is the easiest shaker card I have ever made. It is flat and the shaker items to not get stuck in any adhesives or static cling to the window of the shaker.
     I made this card at a scrapping crop night. The whole time I was telling everyone that I was happy with the card, but the shaker was going to be dumb. The plan was that after I finished the card, I would immediately make another card just like it with no shaker in the window. Well, when I completed the card, I was totally happy with it and no longer felt the need to make another.
