Hi, there. It’s been kind of quiet here lately, I’ve been busy at work and I also prioritized getting my international holiday cards out in the mail. I still have the domestic ones to go, but there’s still time to send those, so I’m not too worried. I created this fun gift tag/ornament for my sister and her husband for Christmas, featuring the brand new Gingerbread Couple from Rachelle Anne Miller.
I colored the gingerbread cookies with my Copics and used a circle die to turn it into a circle. I die cut another circle from patterned paper from Papirdesign and used a die from the Glassic Snow Globe die set from My Favorite Things to cut a window from the same piece. I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad AS below the window and added a shaker pouch from My Favorite Things that I filled with the Icicle Sequin mix from Hero Arts.
I die cut another circle from the same patterned paper that I used on the front and white heat embossed a to/from stamp from Norsk Stempelblad AS in the center. After adhering all the pieces together, I cut a hole at the top, reinforcing it with an eyelet before pulling string through. This shaker gift tag can definitely be used as an ornament too, and I’m hoping that’s what will happen.
Simple image and simple colors for this one.
