I'm here today with a shaker card I made for my sister's friend and her new husband - they were married (by my sister!!!) on the beach in Mexico. My sis brought back some beach sand and I knew it'd make the perfect shaker filler!
**Excuse the poor iPhone photos. I was in a hurry to get it to my sister and didn't have time to pull out my good camera!
The shaker portion is from the Sprinkles & Shakers set from PTI. I printed out a verse from their ceremony on vellum and layered it over some ocean print patterned paper. The filler is sand and microbeads as well as a few small shells. Since the shaker was the main focus, the only additional things I added were the gold strip down the side of the card and the embossed front panel.
I hope they enjoy the card - it was fun to make something that included a special memory for them!
