Card Making: Easter Card #2 and Shaker Box Tutorial

I liked my first shaker card so much that I decided to make another one, I'm so glad you liked it too girls!
Here's the finished card:
And the little bunny in the spotlight! (LOL)
So let's start:
1) I prepared the parts of the card, that is I cut a window in my card (after coloring it with distress inks, stamping on the inside and spraying the front with the water-Perfect Pearls mix, you know, the works). I also cut an oval shape about 1/4 of an inch larger than my focal image (freeby bunny that I printed and colored with my copics) and cut the acetate piece also at 1/4 of an inch larger than my focal image. I also cut a scallop frame.

2) Tip #1: I found this mesh like thing at Jumbo and I tried to use it with distress inks (on a piece of pattern cardstock I had already cut with the MS Trellis border punch) in order to make a pattern, really cool result!
 3) Then I cut tiny thick foam pads in half and adhered them around the acetate piece, thank god I remembered to remove the protective sheet first! (LOL)
4) Tip #2. Do you like chunky glitter? I do nowdays but don't have any. So I made some!!! This is how:
I used two small leftovers from the acetate piece I had cut and covered them with Ranger's Glossy Accents. Then I covered the one with green Flowersoft and the other with glitter and did the same on the other side too. I left them to dry for half and hour and then cut them randomly in tiny pieces. How cool is that??? Especially the gliter ones are awesome in real life!

5) I put them inside the acetate frame and then adhered on top the colored image facing down, sealing the tiny pieces inside the shaker box.

6) Next step, I adhered it on the card window using Ranger's Glossy Accents on the perimeter and I colored the back so as to be more uniform with the inside of the card.
Finally I adhered the borders and the flowery Happy Easter and...ready!
