Is It A Shaker Card? No It’s A Shaker Bag!

Hello everyone and big happy smiles too.

Today I am bringing you a shaker with a difference. It’s not a shaker card. It’s a shaker gift bag. Grins.

Do you love it?? I know that I do! Tee hee.

The image I used to create this awesome gift bag is called Winter Pine Grove by Dove Art Designs.  It is available from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

To bring it to life I used my white frantage powder and my copics in these shades:-

Fir Trees.

My ribbon is an old one from Crafty Ribbons and I thought it was the perfect match for this project.

The bag itself came from The Range and it originally held pot pouri inside. I very carefully opened it all out so that I could lay it flat. Then I cut my snow acetate so that it would fit nicely around the window. I glued this in place.  Then I set to creating a kraft frame to fit around my image. I created two of them and sandwiched some brown fun foam between the two.

I stuck all of the frames and foam together, added frantage to my image and then stuck the acetate window/bag on top of it all.

Today we’re showcasing the new Autumn/Winter Stamps by DoverArt Designs. These are perfect for both the novice and more experienced colourist, due to their fabulous shading.  I have a few Doveart Design Stamps and I just adore playing (ermm I mean colouring) with them!

I chose to create with Apple Branch for my card.. However, to show their versatility, I coloured them as peaches. 

The inside of the card reads “I hope your Birthday is just peachy!”

To bring these to life I used my Copics in the following shades:-

Peaches (which are really apples! Grins.)

My paper is a My Minds Eye one, from a paper pad called Cupid’s Arrow.

And that ribbon was holding a new pair of boy’s PJs together. It was the perfect colour for finishing off this card, so of course I nabbed it! Laughing.
