Pink & Main – Tidings of Comfort & Joy Shaker

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s time for some Pink & Main inspiration using the recently released Poinsettia stencil. This single stencil has all of the layers to create a gorgeously inked poinsettia flower that covers your card front. It’s so beautiful! Today I turned my inked panel into a shaker card for added fun.

I started by inking the poinsettia layers with my blending brushes and dye inks, except for the center. Once I got to that point, I spread gold Glitz Glitter Gel through for some added bling. Then I set the panel aside to dry while I cleaned up.

To create a frame for my shaker, I took an A2 size piece of kraft cardstock and ran it through my die cut machine in the Woodgrain embossing folder. Then I cut a window out using a Stitched Arch die. I saved the inside piece for another card which is an extra bonus! Then I lined it with EZ Tear Tape and added a piece of acetate. I then, lined that with foam strips, sprinkled some Holly Super Fine Glitter to my panel and adhered them together.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Pine Boughs with the new Platinum Ring embossing powder and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I popped it up with foam squares and adhered my shaker to a top folding white card base. Then, to finish off the design, I tied some twine around the top in a cute little bow.

I love the glitz and shine from the different elements, paired with the rustic feel of the woodgrain and twine wrapping.
