Yup, another shaker card....lol!  This one is a little different!  The shaker is on the front of the card, but the scene is on the inside!  These little flamingoes are just too cute! It's put together pretty much the same way, only there is acetate on both front and back so that it is see through!
Here is the inside with a beach scene.

Welcome Krafty Friends to Day FOUR of our JUNE Krafty Previews!
Today we are previewing TWO MORE summer designs to inspire you this month from artist, Annie Rodrigue!
First, we have a fabulous new background stamp that will go with all your summer creations!! You can use it on it's own as the focal point of your design or combine it with other splish-splashy images!! This new 4x4 clear set is called AT THE BEACH and it also includes two fun sentiments!


Next up is DOLLY DIVER who is having some underwater fun! Looks like she's also picked up a squiddly little hitchhiker too! This new 4x4 clear set includes the main image plus SIX fin-tastic sentiments!

I don't know if you've noticed, but I love making shaker cards!!  This stamp was perfect for one!  After I colored it with Copics I fussy cut the image out and layered her onto the background paper.  Then I added some grass/ferns.  I like to place a piece of acetate on top of the image before I add the sequins/beads.  I find it moves/shakes better.  Once I did that I added more grass and rocks to give a 3D effect.  This shaker card is deeper than what I usually do.  The designer paper is from the Doodlebug - Under The Sea paper pad.  The dies are from YNS.  Thanks for stopping by!
