#1  Cut all your layers and die cut pieces.

#2  Adhere your silver layer to card front.

#3  Rub a used dryer sheet or anti-static pouch to both sides of your acetate sheet and attach to back of star cut-out layer with double-sided tape.

#4 Using foam strips, outline the edges of acetate and around the star shapes.  Peel backing off the strips and add shaker elements inside your 3 sections.

#5  With your silver snowflake paper, pattern side down, carefully center it over your star layer, matching up the edges best you can and adhere.

#6  Turn shaker layer right side up and attach to card front.

#7  Color your polar bears and attach all die cut elements to card front as shown.
