...lots of glitter!

Hello everyone!
Today I want to remind you on our current challenge at the Dream Factory. This month's movie is

Snowy landscapes, forest animals, snowflakes, snowmen, reindeer, glitter, princesses...

In France, it is tradition to send New Year's greetings rather than Christmas greetings and we have until the end of January to do so. I do not follow this custom, but if I am missing Christmas cards, I sometimes have to fall back on it!

...but this time the card wasn't meant to be sent! 

In our little handicraft group it became a habit that we make cards to exchange three or four times a year. The theme for the beginning of the year was: Glittery wishes 

I've decided on a shaker card and made 8 of them.
They consist of a small, transparent pocket, which I cut out of document covers and then sewed them. Hmm - it was rather the other way round, I sewed first and then cut the pockets that were still open on one side ;)

I die-cut the sentiments and numbers from self-adhesive glitter foam and glued them inside the pockets. Then I filled them with lots of glitter, sequins, stars and many different transparent die-cuts that I had bought at some point.

Here they are!
I closed the pockets with one last seam and knotted the threads so that they would not open accidentally. I stapled the pockets to a piece of stamped card stock of the same size and then glued it to the white base card.

Hope you like it! 

You still have a fortnight to link up your glittery things! ;)
Have Fun!!
