Happy Holidays Series | From Santa Shaker ft. Lawn Fawn
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
It's the fifth day in my Happy Holidays Series for 2017, and today I wanted to share a super fun card all dressed up like a gift with a shaker tag.
You may have noticed that many of these cards are based on Lawn Fawn products. You aren't wrong. Not only does Lawn Fawn take up easily half of my stash, these stamps are so interchangeable that it's hard NOT to use them.
To begin, I used the tag die from "Tag, You're It" to cut out two tags from from 110lb Copic friendly cardstock. I then used a small rectangle die from Spellbinders to cut a window in one of them. On the back tag, I stamped the pine tree from "Critters in the Forest" and added a few decorations. Then coloured that with Copics.
On a scrap of paper I partially stamped the Gnome from "Gnome Sweet Gnome" and added the Santa hat from "Hats off to you". I cut him out using the Brother 2 Scan N Cut and coloured him with Copics.
I used Mowed Lawn Distress ink to add green to the frame of the top tag and then added my acetate to the back. I used a single layer of foam tape and filled my shaker with chunky glitter from Recollections.
For the back panel, I wrapped a piece of cardstock with some Christmas wrapping paper and added the ribbon. I adhered that to the front of a standard A2 sized card base then adhered my tag in place. Finally, to finish off the card I added a bow with a length of the same ribbon.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
