Beautiful Beach Day

     Well I must say the creative juices are flowing.  I have had so many request for a beach shaker card with the Stampin Up sets, so I finally tackled the request.  The only problem was that once I started I could not stop.  These are the cards that I came up with,  I truly hope that they inspire you to either do a card very similar to this, or go to the beach to relax.  I am always inspired by nature.  I love that the weather is getting nicer so I get to go to the Beach as often as I can catch a break in my schedule.  As always please feel free to leave a comment or a question and I will answer as soon as I see it.

  1. LOVE the Wetlands one the best!

  2. Just spotted your Wetlands card on Pinterest .... what a WOW card! Your design is just beautiful!!

  3. How did you glue the sand? Beautiful card - I hope you don't mind but I would like to case this one. Spectacular - best I have seen in this set!

  4. I didn't glue the sand to the card it is your typical shaker card. I used a window sheet the sand was the filler.

  5. I love this card, and am trying to case it but struggling with the step by step. Any helpful hints

    1. Christi I sent you and email on you blog I would be happy to give you a step by step to the best of my abilities but I was not sure which card it was you were interested in.
