Hello!  Jenny here today with my card for the this week's At the Beach challenge. This is another shaker card. I love making shakers, especially with little scenes inside.

I began by cutting the main ring with two Spellbinders circle dies. I glued a piece of clear plastic from packaging, on the back of the ring. Then I constructed the little scene. I cut a circle out of a darker blue paper, and glued a ripped a piece of Kraft card stock on top for sand.

The clouds are from my stash, but there is a similar Memory Box Puffy Clouds die in stock at the Classy Cards store. All of the dies used inside the shaker are from Impression Obsession:  Sea Birds, Shore Birds, Grass and even the fence.  After the scene was glued in place I adhered Joy foam pads all around the circle and added some bugle beads from my stash before taking the backing off the foam adhesive and closing up the little shaker scene.

I used a grayish-tan card stock for the A2 card base, added a light blue card stock on top, and then glued the shaker to the card.  A little bird from the Impression Obsession Shore Birds and another cloud, were glued to the outside of the shaker.  Last I added the Enjoy die cut.  It's from Cheery Lynn.  Unfortunately it's no longer in stock, but all Cheery Lynn dies are 50% off at Classy Cards with coupon CLD50.

Thanks for visiting!

We hope you come back every day to see two new cards posted daily that the design team has created not only for the weekly challenge, but we also post two regular cards daily, later in the week, to give you even more inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!!! Until next time...
