My favorite stamp set in all of the July-December  Mini Catalog is the Wise Men Bundle, so I knew I wanted to try this for my creation this month. I am pairing this with my other top choices, Peaceful Place, Silver Foil Specialty Paper, the Merry Melody 3-D Embossing Folder, and Subtle Shimmer Sequins to make this a shaker card.

Since the intricate die for the Wise Men is very detailed and more square than rectangular in shape. I changed the size from an A-2 card to 5-1/2" x 5-1/2". It should fit in a 6" x 6" envelope. Here are the measurements for this card if you would like to try!

Basic Gray  Card Base                 5-1/2" x 5-1/2"

Silver Foil Specialty Pack            5-1/4" x 5-1/4" (Emboss with Merry Melody Embossing Folder)

Peaceful Place DSP                       4-1/4" x 4-1/2" (Cut out with the Moroccan influenced die)

Basic White                                   (Die cut the 3 wise men.  Color with Stampin' Blends of your choice.)

Basic Gray                                     5-1/4" x 5-1/4" (Inside piece)

In order to make the shaker card, I used 2 plastic sheets cut smaller than the Peaceful Place DSP. Attach one and use the adhesive foam to create your well. Add the Subtle Shimmer Sequins to the "well." Adhere the second plastic sheet. Add this piece to the layered base, as shown. Place the die cut wise men and position with Dimensionals. Create  a sentiment tag and heat emboss the star and the Wise men still seek Him. Adhere flat on top of the wise men. Glue Smoke Grey piece on the inside to allow for stamping and writing a message .
