Summer Shakers.....

Hey crafty friends, I'm here with a couple new cards using the Summer Shakers!

This first card was created using that adorable Palm Tree shaker box and....real sand!

I lined the bottom of the card with Scor-Tape and then dunked it right in a tub of sandbox sand.  I did this a long long time ago for a card and I knew I had to try it again for this summer scene.  I added in some clouds in the background, the palm tree shaker box, a little sunshine die, of course, some cool summer drinks and a sentiment.  The sentiment comes in the Summer Shaker kit and is perfect for your summer cards.

The flip flops in the kit were calling my name so I created this clean and simple card...

First, I added in a very light landscape of sand with a brown ink and then added in some light clouds to ground the flip flops.  I die cut them next and added them to the card front using some foam tape for dimension.  Last, I heat embossed the sentiment on a vellum banner and did a little sewing along the top.  I added the card front to a Coral card base to finish if off.

These flip flops?  Aren't they just adorable!?

So that is it for me today.  I hope you are having a great day!  Thanks so much for stopping in!
