Hey everybody! Happy Friday – I hope you’re having an awesome week! I’ve popped in this morning to share another Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project with you! I know I’ve shared many times that I absolutely love shakers – so instead of a ‘message in a bottle’, we have a ‘scene in a bottle’ which is one of the many relatively new products in the store. In addition to this Christmas Scene in a Bottle Shaker Card Kit, I used the Christmas Gnomes Stamp Set, Friendship Greetings Stamp Set, 3mm Sparkling Clear Droplets and 4mm Sparkling Clear Droplets to create this Christmas card with an inked background! So fun!
I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. Next, I DTP-inked a panel of Strathmore Bristol 100# Smooth with Ranger stormy sky, faded jeans, prize ribbon and villainous potion distress inks. When it was completely dry, I flicked water on it and blotted it with paper towel, and adhered it to the card base.
I colored the cork on the end with a brown Tombow marker and added some CutCardStock Brown Bag Kraft paper to resemble cork. Next, I used brown, red, gold and green Tombow markers to color the scene in the bottle, and applied Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to the trees and ground for the snow.
I assembled the shaker, laid down 3mm Sparkling Clear Droplets and 4mm Sparkling Clear Droplets onto the background, and adhered the shaker over top of them. I adhered a few more clear droplets on the background and added a stamped and trimmed sentiment from the Christmas Gnomes stamp set, which completed the card front.
I cut the inside panel from #80 Solar White cardstock, stamped a sentiment from the Friendship Greetings stamp set, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Basis Medium Blue cardstock.
