This weeks Just Us Girls challenge is to make a shaker card. I chose to make a beachy shaker. The sand in this shaker is very special sand. My daughter used to be a Flight Attendant. On one of her trips she brought home a small jar of the pink sands of Bermuda. It's hard to see in the picture, but up close and personal you can see pink flecks in the sand. I used a Kraft card base for this card. The pink layer is GKD Innocent Pink cardstock that I have embossed with a Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles folder. I, also, scored a small section at the bottom for the greeting. The greeting has a distressed look to it. I stamped it with Memento Espresso Truffle ink. This layer was attached to a layer of GKD Powder Blue cardstock. I tied some Doodle Twine blue and white twine and a blue button above the greeting. I sponged the background of the focal image and attached a few shells. The sand castle was stamped, colored and fussy cut. Then attached to the background. I used two layers of Scor-Tape to give enough clearance for the sand to fit between the background and the clear panel. I stamped, colored and fussy cut some whirly gigs to decorate the outside of the frame. This was attached to the card front.
