MHK Designs - Christmas Frames

     Christmas Frames from MHK Designs are just that, Christmas Frames, this makes them ideal for shaker cards.
     I prefer to make shaker boxes, I think they look neater because you can't see the foam and nothing can escape.
     The Wintry Scene was printed on white card, the edges measured and scored ready for the box and the centre cut out. The greeting was printed on another sheet of card ready to back the shaker.
     An acetate sheet was put over the opening and then foam tape was put all around close to the opening, with a small piece in each corner for support.
     A mixture of snowflake sequins, shaved glitter and micro beads was added to the well created over the acetate before the backing was carefully lowered on top to seal the shaker aperture.
  Once the greeting backing was in place the sides were folder over to form the box. To make it all neat and tidy another backing was put on and a small stand to keep the card upright.
     Finishing touches were to colour the door and windows of the house and add a little sparkle to the snow.
