ME STAMP HIGHLIGHT - ICONIC ORNAMENTS

 Hello and welcome to the Mama Elephant's November Stamp Highlight Series. Today the design team is highlighting the Iconic Ornament Stamp Set.

For today, I created a fun shaker card that can be used as an ornament.


To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Iconic Ornament Stamp Set and die-cut it with a die from the Stacked Circle CC to create the background panel.

The front frame/shaker window was die-cut using the scallop frame and the big circle die together from the Stacked Circle CC. After, I adhered an acetate that I die-cut with a Scallop Frame and adhered it to the front panel to close the window. 

The sentiment from the Iconic Ornament Stamp Set was heat embossed and trimmed with a die from the Sentiment Strips CC.

To assemble the card, I foam mounted the shaker window to the background panel with added glitter for the shaker element. To finish, I adhered the die-cut sentiment strip to the card front as shown.
