Fab Friday 103

As soon as I saw the sketch at Fab Friday, I knew I had to play it. So many ideas came to mind but I went with the one that let me play with a recently neglected set, Seaside Shore.

I seldom make shaker cards. In fact, this is only the second one I've ever made. It seemed the right approach with this set and this sketch. So, here it is...

I took a tip from Jennifer McGuire and glued a few sequins in place inside the shaker, just in case everything fell to the bottom. The Calypso Coral button was leftover from a previous year's Sale-a-bration deal.

On the inside...

In the end, a card that would suit male or female. I like that it retains a clean look, despite the use of patterned paper and a lot of layers.

Card: Dapper Denim, Very Vanilla, DSP from By the Shore, Window sheet
Stamps: Seaside Shore, Big on Birthdays
Inks: Dapper Denim, Soft Sky, Mint Macaron, Calypso Coral
Other: Seaside Textured embossing folder, foam strips, Square framelits, Calypso Coral button, Linen twine, sequins from the sewing cupboard.


  1. LOVE this shaker! What a great tip to place some of the sequins with glue, too, I'll have to start doing that! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  2. What a great idea to use our squares in the sketch for a shaker card! Looks great and the iridescent sequins remind me of bubbles in the water! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  3. Very clever idea for this sketch! Colors are great and I love the glued sequins, I always forget to do that! Thanks for playing at Fab Friday!
