Gingerbread Shaker

I treated myself to an Xcut gingerbread man die set whilst I was away on holiday, I couldn't resist when I saw it in a craft shop as it's so cute.  It even has clothes and accessories to dress the gingerbread figures up in!  Here's the first project I've made using my new dies, an on trend shaker card (I'm seeing them everywhere at the moment).
 The jolly paper came free with a magazine many moons ago and seemed perfect for this card.  I added some claret card for matting and acetate for the shaker window, raising the whole front panel up on shaker tape.  On the lower level, I stamped a sentiment with a Papermania stamp and added my shaker elements, which in this case were die cuts sweets, cut with dies from my Spellbinders Gingerbread House die set, punched Christmas trees, gold sequins, red micro beads, and glitter.
The gingerbread man, as mentioned above, was made with Xcut dies.
