Shaking in the Sea

Our Polkadoodles Design Team challenge for this week was a Mermaid/Ocean card.

After printing on Neenah 110# cardstock, I used my Copic markers for the coloring. 

After cutting the cardstock to 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" for the slimline, I die cut the lattice background piece to use as the shaker front.  For this shaker, I used the cellophane bag method, adding the slimline bag to the lighter aqua background piece.  Once tightly secured, then I added the green iridescent confetti glitter (Scrapsalot) to the front of the bag.  Next I sealed the top of the shaker bag and secured it to the lattice front.  I carefully placed and secured the die cut mermaid piece to the lattice and then added this 'sandwich' to the slimline card front using 1/4" double sided tape.   

The shaker part turned out great using this method - allowing the confetti to move freely from the top to the bottom of the card.
