Shaker Ornament

Hello everyone!! I've been quiet for a few days. Life got busy and so I had to take some time. I'm here to share a shaker card that I made recently.

I had this thought on my mind for a long time - to make a card with a shaker ornament that hangs from a pine branch. But was little hesitant to try it - the shaker part was a little bit intimidating!! But after seeing one of the Blitsy live sessions, I went ahead and gave it a try (I don't have a fuse tool. I used the old school method).

I stamped the pine branches from the Inkadinkado branches set and embossed it with Stampendous Jade Pearl embossing powder and the brown part with Clear bark embossing powder. I stamped the ornament from Joanna Sheen Make A Wish set on the cardstock and embossed the holder with gold embossing powder. I cut out the ball part of the ornament. I stamped the ornament on a piece of acetate (I recycled a piece of package) and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I used tiny pieces of foam tape around the ornament and added brown, gold and green sequins inside.

The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy - Christmas Penguins Clear Stamp Set and I embossed it with the Clear bark embossing powder from Stampenduous.

This is one of the cards for the Caring Hearts card drive.

Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know your thoughts on this card.

  9. Love the shaker ornament! I had seen it also on Pinterest and have been wanting to give it a go. And I had never heard of the Fuse tool so ended up watching a video. Hmmmm.... The card details are perfect for your ornament. It looks tied to a pine tree with lovely sparkles to showcase the shaker bits. Thanks so much for including Retro Rubber in your stamping fun this week. Hope to see you play often!
