Cut a Sam E. Snowman Shaker Die  out of each:  card stock, acetate sheet and craft foam. 
Tip: I layer the card stock and craft foam and cut together for a perfect fit.
Cut hat, nose, scarf and hat band out of desired colored card stock ~ I chose the Holly for his hat (other options come with this die set)  I used the Tranquil Tree Die for the arms.

Add sequins then layer backing on top of the sequin/foam sandwich.   I used a light blue paper for the back of the shaker to show off the white sequins.

 Create the background I used Simply Snowflakes Stamp Set  and clear embossed with Ranger Ink Embossing Ink and Clear Embossing Powder onto navy card stock cut using the largest Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop Die, and then I used Distress Spray Stain in Picket Fence onto the Dainty Dots Background Builder Stamp, stamped onto the card stock then dried with the heat gun to give the effect of little snowflakes.
