This little crab simply looks trapped in this shaker card. Every time I look at him, I can't help but think he is knocking on the acetate as if to get my attention. (No, I am not dillusional....much.)
I bought all my die cuts at www.creativecutsandmore.com . And found that they are starting to carry new products. I just love it!, more to play with. The shaker box is made w/ polyfoam! Yes, Poly Foam (tm) . No more trying to piece foam tape together and get a perfect seal. and then have all those ugly edges show and lose your shaker insides! This looks so neat and professional that it blows everyones minds. And the sand does not get stuck around the edges! I cannot say enough about it. I think this is a great addition. They have limited colors, but the cost was no more for the poly foam straight frame than it was for the cardstock straight frame.

I forgot to mention that the crab is popped out inside the shaker box and that the shaker box is actually on the inside of the card and appears thru the window cut in the Confetti Cream and Creamy Caramel Cardstock. This was a huge success at my weekend workshops.
