I really Love shaker cards and even though it takes a few extra steps...I find they are fun to make and recipients love them too!
I have been in a nautical mode for most of the summer...still thinking about the beach! This week's challenge is "In Stitches". I don't know how to sew with a sewing machine but I can make faux stitches. I used a black archival marker and with a template made black stitches all the way around the edges, on the shaker piece and on the waves of sand . For the shaker card I used the two largest A2 Frames Rectangle. Then cut it again with white foam. I used the largest rectangle in light blue and again with acetate to create the window for the beads.
I cut out the two Lighthouses in medium blue, one set of the Clouds and one set of the Birds from Bird Bath. I added a little light blue distressing ink to the birds. I diecut Ships Anchor in light blue and colored the chain with a black copic. I placed light blue and clear beads in the center of the shaker and placed the anchor on the top bottom corner. The stamp is on the outside acetate using staz-on black ink.
Here you can see all the little beads throughout!
