Christmas Shaker Tag


I'm sharing one of my fav shaker creations so far - a holiday shaker tag :)

The main shaker panel is diecut using Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Circles and Gina Marie Stitched Circles dies. At the back of the shaker panel, I added a mandala diecut from MFT Mesmerizing Mandala. This die is so beautiful and the gold cardstock from Dress My Craft is just awesome for it! I got a lovely snowflake effect for the tag!

I then stamped the Santa from Gerda Steiner Designs' Reindeer and a Tree stampset, onto watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink. It is colored using Faber Castell watercolor pencils and I've also added some shimmer using Wink of Stella glitter brush. The Santa is adhered to the outer acetate panel of the shaker element.

It is hard to capture all the shine and glitter, so I didn't mind a pic with the flash!

For the shaker part, I've used a mix of gold sequins in different shapes, iridescent sequins and glitter dust. I love the gold and white elegant combination!

The mandala die provides a beautiful loop to thread the baker's twine and that completes the tag :) It can be used as an ornament too! :)
