Hello fellow crafters, I am in the process of making about four trillion holiday cards and tags…well maybe not quite that many, but let me tell you it is A LOT. So with no further adieu, here is today's holiday card. I used You Light Me Up set/images by Sunsational Stamps. I love how "Merry & Bright" these adorable holiday lights are!
I wanted to make another shaker card because they are so dang fun! This one I watercolored the background with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Next I stamped the sentiment on acetate with StazOn. I sponged Evergreen Bough Distress Ink onto the little frame I die cut, then attached the acetate to the backside of the frame then on the watercolor background I made a pile of shaker elements…snowflakes, sequins and large glitter flakes by WOW. I added foam tape to the back of the frame and adhered it over the watercolor background. Then I added CTMH thick twine in Fern, making little loop-de-loops and adhering them down with Glossy Accents. I wanted it to appear like a wonky sting of lights. I printed out the bulb images then cut them out and adhered them to the frame/string. I glued all that down to a card base that I embossed with a swirly pattern.
