Clean and Simple Ink-Blended Christmas Shaker
Good morning! Jess here with a clean and simple ink-blended Christmas shaker! As we're headed into Christmas card crunch time, I thought I'd share a way to quickly create an interactive card!
I started by blending Soft Pink, Stone Wash, and Navy ink onto Hero Hues Dove White cardstock with a blending brush. I kept my hand light for a soft background. I let it dry completely and then stamped a few silhouette images from Snowy Town with Embossing & Watermark ink and heat-embossed it with Black Embossing Powder.
Next I die-cut the Rolling Hills Window Die from an A2 panel of Hero Hues Dove White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Snowy Town with Embossing & Watermark ink and heat-embossed it with Black Embossing Powder. Next I adhered a piece of acetate behind the window and then added a double layer of foam mounting tape around the opening. I filled it with clear confetti and sparkly beads and then sealed it with the blended panel. I really love creating shaker cards but you could keep it even simpler and skip the shaker part if you're short on time! ;) You could also just die-cut a window with the Nesting Circle Infinity dies or the Paper Layering Window Shutters die to change up the design a bit!
And that's it! Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful rest of your week!
