Happy New Year~ MCT Made in Minutes

Good Morning everyone!!! 
It is time for another My Creative Time~ Made in Minutes!
With Christmas over for 2015 :(
 I thought I would share a quick and easy 
New Years shaker card....
To make my card I grabbed a piece of MME~Fancy That designer paper that had the pretty gold "polka dots" already on the page. I thought it looked like confetti and perfect for a New Years card. Since we are ringing in 2016, I grabbed the number dies from the Stitched 4x6 Journal Die and die cut them into the designer paper. Next I stamped the sentiment using the Happy Everything set. Before filling my shaker, I did die cut the banner and stamp the "happy" sentiment using the Chocolate Greetings set and placed that aside until I was ready to assemble my card.  And like I start all of my cards, I did use the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die for the card mat.
Now moving onto the shaker part....I am kinda obsessed with using glitter in my shakers lately! I was able to grab some Christmas gold/silver chunky mix from Michaels on clearance that was perfect for my new years card. It is so fun to add to shakers that have small spaces and moves so freely without getting caught in the sides like sequins can.
To make the shaker part, I used one of the More Stitched Rectangular Dies and lined it up with the numbers so I could die cut it into some Fun Foam. I attached it to the back on the card, after covering the numbers with a piece of acetate. Next I poured some glitter into the rectangular space and then sealed it all up again with another piece of acetate. 
My card is all ready to be attached to the kraft cardstock base. One final step~ adding the sentiment banner to the front. I did that by taking the banner and tucking it inside the #2 to then lay across the rest of the numbers.

My card seems like it took longer to make than it actually did...maybe from start to finish 10 minutes?? 
It is a perfect card to mass produce and is sure to WOW anyone receiving it!

So there is my Made in Minutes card. Make sure to check out more inspiration over on the
