A Tropical Hello with Elizabeth Craft Designs



Hi Everyone, Kristina here getting my tropical on! I love these huge leaves and hibiscus flower dies from Elizabeth Craft, I have so many plans with them, but today I kept it simple. I used the leaves and flower to embellish the front of an infinity shaker. The whole thing was actually quick & simple to put together! 


The Process

  • I started by creating a background from some light green card stock, a background stamp, and a slightly darker green ink. 
  • I inserted the panel into the bottom of a stamp storage pocket to start my shaker. Once you panel is inside, trim off all but about an inch of the excess plastic, and cut off the corners to create a flap. Add your sequins, and fold over and adhere the flap with strong adhesive. I used scor-tape. 
  • Next I die cut the leaves and hibiscus, adding a little ink blending around the edges of the hibiscus to give it a more realistic two toned look.
  • To finish I stamped a sentiment on a matching piece of card stock, and glued everything down to the front of the shaker with a strong liquid adhesive. 


And there ya have it! Thanks for stopping by today.
