A shaker card

I'm continuing to share another assignment I made for the Wild Cards class at Online Card Classes.

It's a shaker card today.

And if you shake it up the glitter would go to the top of the snow globe:

Cute and super fun to make!

But let me share a story behind it - I was actually hoping to put water in it to make it look more realistic as a snow globe.  I went to several stores to buy the materials and made it successfully.  I set it aside while working on other "homework" from the class, then when I went back to this card to take pictures of it.  Some images are smearing.  Eek!  I can't explain if I've put in too much water, or the zip lock was not closed securely, or the zip lock was made of low quality materials that it would leak.  But at that time I couldn't care less!  I just want to salvage it to the extent possible!

I was able to save the top part of the card (everything above the acetate sheet) so I re-created the scene. I was disappointed but I didn't let it kill the joy of making a fun card.  I completed it without filling it with water.  It's still cute, isn't it?

My card is linking up to:
