Sail Away

This is my post on the
Dies R Us Inspiration blog today.

I have been making lots of hearts and flower cards lately
and 'don't get me wrong, I love those' but decided to
switch it up a bit and make a fun shaker card.

This is the time of year (at least here in Michigan)
where people are thinking of maybe 'warming up'
and take a fun trip 'south!


So my card today went a bit 'south".
I used Darice Embossing Folder Shell Corner
for the base of my card.
Next Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Circle Layers
were cut for a window for my shaker.
I used the same die  (one size larger) to cut the window from clear card stock
and also the back piece, which was sponged with 
Distress Ink Salty Ocean.


I added tiny star sequins to shake,
then cut two Impression Obsession Sailboats,
one from white and one from red card stocks.
I  added a sparkly sun using Impression Obsession Sun and Moon die. 
I tied a twine bow to finish!

Visit us here Monday-Friday for more wonderful inspiration
using different dies carried in the store.

I absolutely love this! Cute and clever. Clean and fresh. The embossing folder is awesome and love the little sailboat. Great idea to do the shaker with the star sequins. And you have sun and moon dies? Well, of course you do! Everything is perfectly placed, not too much or too little. Fantastic, Diane!
