Global Design Project #058 - Ahoy, There!

Global Design Project #058 - Ahoy, There!

Another fun challenge created for us over at the Global Design Project this week!  Our goal is to create a project using this sketch:

Today's shaker card is the project I submitted this week!  Be sure to click on over and see all the projects submitted, and those done by the super creative design team!  And maybe you have a fun idea you'd like to submit,'s always fun to play along!

Step by Step

To complete this project, you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:

4-1/4" x 11" Soft Sky (card base)

4" x 5-1/4" By The Shore Designer Series Paper

2-3/4" x 3-3/4" By The Shore DSP

3-1/2" x 3-1/2" By The Shore DSP

3-1/2" x 3-1/2" Very Vanilla

3-1/4" x 3-1/4" Window Sheets

Scrap Very Vanilla for stamping greeting, fish and shells (to be cut out)

1) Because I wanted to use DSP for my frame, I wanted to make it a little sturdier so I first adhered it to a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Once it's secure, use the Big Shot and Layering Squares to cut out the center.  Adhere window sheet to back side of window.  Lay foam adhesive strips along cut edges on back side of window sheet, then add sequins.

2)  Stamp fish, greeting and shells on to scrap Very Vanilla using Dapper Denim ink.  Cut out images.

3)  Adhere 4" x 5-1/4" DSP to card base.  Adhere 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" DSP on top, and attach fish to center.  Adhere shaker piece over all, with fish centered under window.  Attach sentiment and shells to outside of shaker.

These are the products I used on this project:
