Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the Big Shot and flip-it die to cut out the card base from the double-sided printed cardstock.
Use the Big Shot to cut out the Nestabilities Labels 3 die in the third and fourth largest sizes from the 6 piece set. With the larger die size, cut one from the clear acetate and two from the coordinating double-sided printed cardstock. Take one of the cardstock pieces and center the smaller die on top. Cut out to from the window frame for the shaker card. Save the cut-out center piece.
Take the clear acetate and match up the edges with the window frame piece. Use the clear glue to attach the clear acetate behind. Let dry.
Take the remaining cardstock piece and flip it over so that is has a different print from the window frame piece. Place the stamped image on top. Glue down.
Trim the foam tape down to about 3/8” wide. Turn the window frame piece over so that the acetate is facing up. Carefully attach the foam tape around the edge of the window frame piece, following the design. Slightly overlap the ends. Leave the protective paper on the tape for now. Make sure that there are no open gaps along the edge.
Carefully add some of the micro beads onto the acetate window piece. They should be held in by the wall of foam tape. Carefully remove the protective paper on the foam tape. Take the piece with stamped image glued on, turn in over so that the stamped image is on the bottom. Align the edges and carefully attach to the window frame piece. Turn over and you will see your shaker piece.
Center and attach to the center front square of the flip –it card base. Take the cut-out center piece and stamp or write a message on top. Center and glue to the other side of the center flip-it section for the inside of the card.
