Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Mama Elephant Mini Messages Stamp Set and coordinating Mini Tags Dies. I paired these cute tags with a Lunar Animals puppy and the All Prettied Up Creative Cuts Dies to create a Christmas shaker card.
To create the shaker, I die cut a window panel using the scalloped rectangle and scalloped circle from smooth white cardstock using the All Prettied Up Creative Cuts Dies. I die cut a rectangle from a transparency and from a piece of watercolor cardstock as well. I adhered the window to the transparency with a strong adhesive.
On the rectangle cut from watercolor cardstock, I applied Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink using Mini Ink Blending tools, then I spritzed the paper with water from a Mini Mister. I set the paper aside to air dry.
I die cut the cardboard box from Simon Says Stamp Khaki Cardstock using the All Prettied Up Creative Cuts Die. I inked up the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and tucked the "box" into the front of the window on the shaker.
The puppy from the Lunar Animals Stamp Set and the santa hat from the Arctic Penguins Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored in the images with Copic Markers and die cut the images with the coordinating Lunar Animals Die and Arctic Penguins Dies. I adhered the imaged "inside" the cardboard box.
I die cut the tags from Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock using the Mini Tags Dies and stamped greetings from the Mama Elephant Mini Messages Stamp Set on each tag using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed each greeting tag with a different embossing powder for variety. I tied each tag with thin string and secured the tags to the front panel of the shaker.
I adhered two layers of foam tape to the back of the shaker and filled the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Seed Beads and Marshmallow Seed Beads. I removed the backing from the foam tape and attached the watercolored background panel to the shaker. I adhered the shaker to a top fold card base to complete the design.
