Shaker Card with a Difference

A friend showed me a card that she had made from an idea seen in a magazine.  I am sorry that I don't know who to thank for the original idea but I love this shaker card with a difference.
Trim a piece of mixed media card to 14cm x 14cm. Using the 7th largest nested circles picot die from Claritystamp, cut an aperture from the centre.
Stamp the four smaller Clarity snowflakes in different shades of blue onto the front of a 6” x 6” card blank.
Add Noel from Jayne’s Postcard Framer set in Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Using the four teeny weenie snowflakes from the Candle and Snow Globe Outline stamp sets, add stamping to opposite corners of the frame in Versamark ink and heat emboss in detail silver embossing powder.
Add foam tape onto the back as shown.
Using transparent sewing thread, add eight silver bugle beads to the thread with a small seed bead of the same colour in between. Add the string of beads across the centre of the aperture and hold each end in place with the foam tape. Ensure the thread is taught. Repeat each side at a distance of 2cm from the central thread.
Remove the backing from the foam tape and add the frame to the front of the card.
Stamp Noel in the top left corner in Versafine ink.
To finish, die cut and emboss one of the Sue Wilson winter Trees from dark blue glitter card and add it to the bottom right corner of the frame.
