Hello everyone! I have some Christmas Shaker Tags to share with you today using products from Sunny Studio Stamps! I love the size of the Scalloped Tag Circle Dies that were recently released. They’re perfect for creating a fun little scene and having room to write if need be. I combined the Scalloped Tag Circle Dies with the cute Merry Mice Stamp Set to make a few double-layer shaker tags that were inspired by some ornaments that Jennifer McGuire made a few years back. You can check out that video HERE.
To created my tags, I first cut two base layers and stamped my sentiment onto the back of each of them. I then used the large Scalloped Circle Tag Die with a basic Circle Die to create a frame of the tag. I quickly diecut about 11 of these frames for each tag and glued 5 of them together for my first layer and 5 for my second layer, leaving one frame left for the final piece to show in the front. I like to create my shaker tags this way because this allows for a very neat and uniform frame that lines up perfectly with each layer below. For the inside of the tag, I used some Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink for my background and splattered it with diluted Opaque White Paint to resemble snow. I also diecut some snow drifts and trees from white card stock using the Woodland Borders Die Set.
Because I used two layers of acetate with stacked frames in between, I was able to add more glittery embellishments than usual because it wouldn’t completely cover my images. I love how it looks like a snowy blizzard behind each mouse.
I love how the sentiment stands out on its own on the back of the tag. There is still plenty of room to write a short message. These would also make the perfect ornaments to decorate a Christmas tree if so desired.
