Aren’t those mini fish inside cute?

I cut out the fish with my Big Shot and Sea of Textures Framelits

in the four colors, I picked from the DSP!

Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide, and Fresh Fig.

The sea grass, inside the shaker is the Tranquil Tide color, the Mint Macaron

sea grass, I adhered to the front of the window!

 

Here is the inside of the Card!

I went ahead and used the cut outs for the window backing.

I also used the sea grass cut outs in Tranquil Tide and Soft Sea Foam

on the lower left bottom of theĀ sentiment page!

 

Here is a picture of the items used to make the Card!

Overall I am pleased how the card turned out! Love those Mini fish!

Mr. Hubster really liked the Card! He couldn’t understand how I was

going to use the fishing line…if you tip the card on it’s side, the brass fish

will slide back and forth on the fishing line!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Shaker Fun to you ALL!

  1. Another super clever card, Cheryl! Using the fish as your shaker elements is so terrific! I didn’t realize there was a fishing line holding the brass fish… I bet seeing it in motion is a ” wow” factor on this already great card! Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday’s shaker card challenge! -Donna
