Flat shakers are all the rage lately – and why not?
- You get to reuse packaging, so extra points for reduce, reuse and recycle!
- Edge to edge glitter, and let’s face it, the more glitter the better.
- And they’re flat, so great for mailing.
I decided to do an emboss resist gradient background. I used the Simon Says Stamp Outline Snowflakes background stamp, stamped it with Versamark embossing ink on Strathmore Bristol paper, and then heat embossed it in white. Then I took some Distress Oxide inks and did an ink blend to create a lovely gradient over the embossed snowflakes.
I took some left over packaging from another stamp set and secured it firmly with Sookwang tape on 3 sides of the background panel. Then I filled it full of glittery goodness and secured the last side.
Finally, I cut several versions of the Simon Says Stamp Eliza Snowflake which I layered up for added dimension. The one on top I covered with fine glitter and added a sentiment strip.
