Bubbly Funk Through The Letter Box

Hello Crafters.
I am back to Christmas crafting.  I knew I wouldn't last long and with the contents of Bubbly Funk Through The Letterbox its hard not to get back into Christmas mode.  The kit is full of lovely pieces to add to your festive projects.
Here is this weeks idea.
Its not Christmas without a shaker card.  I love making these.  For this one I used the bag of sequins and beads that comes in the kit.

I began by taking a square of white card and cutting an aperture in the front and sticking a piece of plastic underneath to keep your sequins inside.  Instead of using foam squares or tape I cut 5 or 6 square frames and glued them to the back.  This gives you enough depth to allow your sequins to shake.  I created the back ground by blending a few shades of ink together and created the snow drifts using a torn piece of cardstock and inked just lightly over the edge.  I then stamped my tree image in black.

I also added one of the die cut sentiments from the kit to the front of the card.
To finish I added some twine and one of these cute white jingle bells which is also found in the kit.  The little bells just add that extra bit of Christmas to your card.  When you shake the card for the sequins to move the bell will ring.
Thanks for stopping by and please check out the Bubbly Funk website and blog for more details on how to order your kit and more great ideas from the Design Team.
Have a lovely day.
