Waving Hello

Today I have an under the sea present shaker card to share.

I began by die cutting four squares from a piece of white card. On the reverse side, I added a piece of acetate behind the windows. Then I layered foam tape to create upper and lower shaker sections to the present. 

I put more foam tape all over the back of the card, then added some Neat & Tangled Mermaid Tail sequins in the shaker areas. To seal the shaker, I used a piece of blue watercolour paper.

I added the shaker to a white card base. To create the look of a present, I used some twine between the shaker windows and a twine bow at the top.

Finally, I coloured and cut out some images from the Lawn Fawn Mermaid For You stamp set. I added these to the card, along with a sentiment from the same set.

Thanks for joining me today.
