What inspired this card? Well that's a long story........but the short answer is research! That's what I tell my husband I'm doing when I hide away in my craft room and watch videos of various project tutorials!
I was watching this video by Vicky at Clips n Cuts and loved the idea of a shaker cup card! Then I remembered this video by Gabrielle at Such a Pretty Mess and wanted to do the tag idea. Then I saw the sketch at Atlantic Hearts and the idea is born! Now I have to make a small confession. I am a bit dyslexic. I looked at this picture several times and walked back to the table where I work and reversed the small rectangles with the long ones. I mean to tell you within a matter of seconds my brain can reverse things. Now, here's the fun part. I actually went back and looked at it several times to be sure I was doing it like the sketch image! Oh well, I am who I am!
I started with papers from CTMH Yuletide Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go. I love to purchase those. Like I said before, I never make what is there, but I use everything in the package! It's a great bargain for me.
The Ruby CS was run through the embosser and lightly sanded.
The tag was cut from Joys of the Season. It was stamped with miscellaneous stamps from CTMH Love Life, Universal Backgrounds, and Curlicue Frames. I "sliced" a heart from a square shape in Cricut Explore to back the tag. I glued the acetate behind that and adhered 3-D foam tape around the heart cut. The shaker ingredients are cut gold sequins from the WOTG and gold glitter.
