White Christmas

Good afternoon everyone! Have you been following Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas? He makes the most wondeful things, amongst them I saw some lovely memory capsules. He filled one of them with glitter to create a shaker pin. That inspired me for this card. As I don´t have the capsules I cut a hole with a Nestie and covered it with acetate from a veggie pack. I lined the inside border with foam pads and filled it with some glass beads (I made a first try with glitter but it was too static and covered the acetate).
The background is also cut out with a Nestie but a slightly larger size. I stamped it with a TH frame and a sentiment from Kortmakaren that says "Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year in Swedish. I also distressed it before I glued it to place at the foam pads.
The image is Magnolia and the swirl is TH, the decorpaper is Panduro, snowflake is Cuttlebug. Pearls are made with Rangers Liquid Pearls and I´ve also added Stickles for some texture.
