When I saw the dark gray color in this color palette, I thought of the cute Zippy Zebras stamp set and I really wanted to use the Trendy Tag because it's just so cute.
I started by stamping and coloring the zebra with alcohol markers. Next, I did some die cutting. I die cut the zebra with its coordinating dies, cut the tag from Steel Grey card stock and the frame from Summer Splash card stock. I also cut the frame from the tag piece to get the window for my shaker element. And I die cut a stitched rectangle from white card stock for my card base.
Next, I created the shaker tag. I glued some acetate to the back of the teal frame, glued this to the gray frame and adhered the frame window I got to the tag. I used foam tape on the back of the tag to hold everything together. (Oh my, it's a bit hard to explain how to do this without a video, especially because English is not my native language. Sorry).
Next, I put some flower sequins on the stitched card base and adhered the shaker tag on top. I added foam tape to the zebra and added it on top of the shaker tag. Now, all I needed was some ribbon and a piece of twine for a little someting-something, a few flower sequins to go on the tags frame and a tiny heat embossed sentiment to finish up my card.
I hope you got inspired to play along! Join the fun and hop over to the MFT Blog for more information and inspiration.
