Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the Festive Mice Stamp Set and coordinating Festive Mice Dies. One of my favorite things to do this season is to create gift tags that can be used as ornaments after the gift has been opened! I combined the Festive Mice images with the Pizazz Pieces Dies for this fun shaker tag!
I die cut the shaker frame and back from smooth white cardstock using the Pizazz Pieces Creative Cuts Dies. I die cut another banner from a transparency.
From the circle die cut from the banner/tag front, I applied Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink to the circle using a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I stamped the music notes from the Festive Mice Stamp Set on the circle with Yeti Pigment Ink and adhered the circle to the shaker tag back.
The transparency was adhered to the back of the shaker tag front and then another circle was die cut from smooth white cardstock and a "snowy border" was created by die cutting a small hill using a Borderlines Trio Die. The "snow" was adhered to the front of the transparency.
I stamped a mouse from the Festive Mice Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored in the image with Copic Markers and then die cut the image with the coordinating Festive Mice Dies. I added texture and dimension to the trim and pompom on the hat with the Marvy Snow Marker and heated it until it puffed up. I adhered the mouse to the front of the shaker window.
I adhered foam adhesive around the opening of the window on the back of the shaker tag and filled the shaker with Silver Circle Confetti and Sparkling Clear 4mm Sequins. I adhered the shaker back to the front.
I die cut some Mini Tags from Black Cardstock and stamped messages from the Mini Messages Stamp Set on the tags using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I threaded the tags through red twine and through the holes in the banner/tag and tied the ends in a knot.
