Sweet Sentiment Surf's Up Retreat: Monkey Island Water Shaker

Hi Crafty Friends,
I have a fun "water" shaker card for you to make for the Sweet Sentiment Surf's Up Retreat! All you need is some hand sanitizer (which we all have gallons of left over from the pandemic right?!?!) and a zip lock baggie! The little Chill Out Monkey and Palm Tree digi are perfect for the "above" water portion of the card and all the digi Sea Creatures can be colored up and placed "underwater". See below for the step by step of how to create this bright island water shaker card.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you ever been surfing? Were you able to do it?
A: Me? No, I have never been but I would love too!

Here is it in ACTION: 

Step #1: Squeeze the Hand Sanitizer into the Ziplock bag and add sequins if you would like the extra sparkle.

Step #2: Seal the baggie tight and smoosh around the sequins so that they are all in the front where they will be seen on the card

Step #3: Place the baggie on your background paper and fold over the seat and tape tightly

Step #4: I backed my pattern paper with heavy cardstock so that it doesn't flop around and bend

Step #5: Now you get to make your background! I used a slimline card base so that I could create "above" and below the water. I glued the purple sky, water shaker piece, and island dies down to the base then framed is with the pink polka dot edge so that you can't see the seams of my background pieces

Step #6: I finished my card by gluing all the critters I colored and adding the awesome seaweed die from the Sweet Sentiment Shop to the left corner for even more underwater elements



Supplies:
Sweet Sentiment Chill Out Stamp
Sweet Sentiment Pistachio Biscotti Sequins
Sweet Sentiment Seaweed Die
Sweet Sentiment Surf's Up Digis

Hand Sanitizer
Ziplock Bag
