Christmas Shaker - Shadowbox?

I have been calling this a shadowbox shaker card but maybe that isn't exactly correct.  It's a shaker with some added dimension....kind of like a shadowbox.
To see what I'm talking about you will have to watch my video...and the video includes a tutorial so you won't want to miss it.

Like my last project, I'm using Memory Box dies.  
For this card I used 2 dies that work perfectly together!
Gentle Valley Oval 
and also this stamp set from Memory Box
Merry Christmas Sentiments stamp set

I'm sorry but the stamp set with Santa and his sleigh does not have a's from an old unpackaged set.

And of course the shaker is filled with glitter and sequins.

This is my inspiration project for
