Die Cutting Heat Embossing Water Coloring

Sleigh Ride Shaker Card with GIVEAWAY

Make sure you continue to check out the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see what the rest of the design team made featuring these products. Each day, we are showcasing new items from the release!

I made a shaker card today using the Sleighride & Sleigh stamp set and coordinating Sleigh Fri-die. To start, I stamped one of the images from the Starlequin stamp set is a very light ink. I wanted the background to be quite subtle.  Then it was time to create my shaker.  I stamped all the images with Versamark ink and heat set it with my favorite gold embossing powder. I used the inside of the sleigh die cut to cut out the inside so I could easily create this shaker! I lined the shaker with vellum instead of a clear panel. I just prefer to the way vellum shakers look! 🙂 The rest of the images were colored with MissionGold watercolors. I adore this stamp set!!!!! There is so much you can do with this!
