Patriotic 4th of July Shaker Style Card

Used a CD storage pocket filled with red/white & blue glitter punch stars for this 5" x 5" card.

To make this I cut red base 5" x 10" and scored it at 5". Cut white layer 4 3/4" x 4 3/4". Cut blue 4 1/2" x 4 1/2". Assembled card by putting white & blue layers on the red base. Used Spellbinder stars die to cut thru all 3 cardstocks red/white/blue. Used negative stars to make a sentiment tag. Stamped sentiment. Cut red/white stripe scrapbook paper 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" and put inside the CD storage pocket. Punched red/white/blue glitter stars and put inside the CD storage pocket. Cut red 5" x 5" and put on backside of CD storage pocket. Attach the CD storage pocket inside behind the cut out stars with the glitter stars & strip paper showing thru the front.
