Our talented friend Adelina Starace is sharing her holiday shaker gift tag featuring the new Essentials by Ellen Holiday Shopper Lady!
For today’s post I’m sharing a shaker gift tag I made using the Holiday Shopper Lady, Ugly Sweater Accessories and the Winter Window die. I really like the versatility of the new Winter Window die. The pieces included in the die set allow you to cut a window frame to create a card scene with snow and trees or just cut the window opening on the front of your card so you can have images peeking through.
I die cut the window opening onto a tag to create this shaker. Then I die cut the same shape out of a double-sided adhesive foam sheet. I wanted each window opening to be an isolated shaker so that the sequins and glitter wouldn’t gather at the bottom of the tag. It drives me nuts when that happens because I feel like the sequins are not as visible and I’ve put so much work into the project! *LOL*
I stamped and die cut the Holiday Shopper Lady, a few of her accessories and a couple of images from the Ugly Sweater Accessories. I colored them using some Copic Markers (you can see the colors I use listed in my photo) and added some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer to the wrapped gifts. When I had everything colored and cut, I started adhering everything onto the tag front.
The Winter Window die comes with three trees and I thought it would be fun to have those peeking through the window. I adhered them in place to the base tag. Then I added a mix of white sequins, some glitter and tiny clear stars into each of the visible window openings.
I finished off the project with some black and white twine and a narrow tag with a simple sentiment! Happy Holidays!
