"King for a Day" Shark Shaker Birthday Card

Good morning friends

For Masculine Card Monday here on my blog, I have a shaker card made with some of Karen Burniston's new dies. To create the backgrounds, I dabbed a craft mat with Distress Oxide inks then spritzed the ink with water then dipped and dragged the pieces through the puddles. I like all the different variations you can get - these inks are really something.

The card front has two openings, and the top one has an acetate topper so I could turn it into a shaker. Before adhering it all together though, I added the shark (from the new Sea Animals) with foam tape. The crown was adhered afterwards, on top of the acetate. The new Word Set Royalty is fun and I like how well it works for masculine cards.

In the second opening, I added a stitched wave from the Tropical Scene die set.

This shark die. I love this shark. It's ridiculous how much I love this shark die.

Here is a peek at the inside, where I created a little scene using the Tropical Scene die set.

I plan on giving this to our Son-In-Law for his birthday in a few days. He loves the tropics, that one.
