Hi everyone, it's JULIE here and today I am sharing some Christmas inspiration using our wonderful Shaker Dies on a gift bag measuring 8" x 10" approx excluding the handles, which I have decorated. So let me take you through the techniques on my die cuts.
I used the Lattice Valance Border at the sides of my bag gluing onto a red strip of card and then mounting onto my cream cardstock, finishing with a border of Red Stickles.
I started my centrepiece by cutting my large Snowflake in half and accenting behind my stacker layer. My Shaker Bells were heat Embossed with an Antique Copper, rubbing a little black Archival ink at the edges to age them. I filled one with Shaker Confetti listed below, small beads and Micro beads, mounting the other to the side as an accent of bells ringing.
My Poinsettia's were cut out in cream cardstock inking at the edges and adding a mix of Micro beads to the centres. My Robin was shaded with Distress ink and black Liquid Pearls added for his eye.
I added a lot of foliage onto my design and finished off with some Liquid Snow and Glass Glitter for a frosty look that glistens so lovely when it catches the light.
My Merry Christmas was heat embossed with Red Tinsel Embossing Powder for more sparkle. Finishing my bag off with a pretty bow and an accent of lace.
