Crabby Beach Shaker

Good morning and welcome to my blog!
Today I'm up on the The Rabbit Hole Designs blog with my
second guest designer project for March.
 I had a lot of fun creating a beachy card for you with some
actual Florida sand and one very tired crab!

For my card I used the newly released Caffeinated Crab stamp.
How cute is he with that coffee cup in one hand and a doughnut in the other!
Here are the steps to create this card:

  1. First I stamped my crab in black ink and colored him in with my Zig markers, then cut him out with my Scan n Cut machine and put him aside.
  2. For my background I took a piece of smooth card stock and blended 3 colors of Distress Oxide inks over the Water Ripples stencil from La-La Land Crafts. Broken China, Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass.
  3. Once the background was complete I took the largest Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle die and the next size smaller to cut out a panel and a frame at the same time. I adhered acetate to the frame portion and built it up the edges with foam tape.
  4. Next step was to skip work and spend the day at the beach🏖☀️⛵️⚓️Well how else was I going to collect sand for my shaker card???  
  5. Pour authentic Jupiter beach sand and some beautiful Frozen II sequin mix on to base of card.  I also glued some sequins to the top of the base so they would stay in view when the shaker was shaking!😂 (Kat Scrappiness literally has hundreds of sequins and mixes to choose from!)                                                                                                                                                                       
  6. Cover base with shaker guts in place with prepared acetate backed frame.
  7. Last step was to send that tired crab to the beach for some much needed R & R! I added a sand castle for him to sleep in and a beach ball so he could play with his friends!                                                                                                                                                                                                 
  8. Oh yeah one more thing....... shake card for all family members to see and hear until they're annoyed and tell you to go away.🤦🏼‍♀️🙅🏼‍♂️🙅🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♂️

I'm super happy with my little beachy card and I hope you'll
try out a shaker card with some fun elements too!
Tell your boss Lisa said it's ok to skip work and go to the beach!
