Dun Dun Dun Dun …….

….we all know this tune! You know – the Theme from Jaws! A fitting soundtrack for my tiny post today πŸ˜€

The other day when I posted the Acorn Shaker, Team Member Lee Cox mentioned her idea of making a shaker card from the latest collection by Bird – JawsomeΒ but she didn’t have the time for it, so she gave the idea to me. Trying my best to honor her wicked idea, here is what I came up with:


I used the shark from the Shark Window Card and made it into a shaker card by adding 7 layers behind the front layer with the acetate. I removed the teeth on the back layers to give more room for shaking and made two front layers with teeth – one in red and one in white – to give the impression of bloody teeth. I also cut out tiny fish skeletons in white pearl paper and added a bit of red ink to make them look bloody πŸ˜€

The background paper I found in the Silhouette Design Store but any sea or wave paper could do.

The card is a freebie from the Card BundlesΒ – the Pop-Up Slider Card from Card Bases. I added the green panels (they are actually the same olive green as the background) to give it a little extra and cut the text from red cardstock in a blood dripping font πŸ˜€

Finally I tied some red, white, grey and black raffia onto the slider (doesn’t show in the picture 😦 ) and added two small black pearls as eyes.

Here’s a little close-up:



Thanks for stopping by to witness the twisted and bloody mind of mine (and Lee Cox’s) and don’t forgetΒ to tell what you think of this bloody fish-eating shark card πŸ˜€

  1. I absolutely love this card! I already loved the idea of it but I also love the choice of colours you’ve used along with the patterned paper and the bloody font too. Thanks so much Helle! πŸ™‚


  2. Well this card has thrown the gauntlet down to other crafters. I love it, just brilliant.
    Thanks for explaining what it said.


  3. Since here in. Southern CA we have had many great white shark sitings, I think this twist is amazing!! Where did you find the skeletons??

  4. So much fun! LOVE it! And so would my 16 year old and all of his friends! I’m storing this idea away for a future card for one of his crew. I need a T-Rex design just like this, if you have any sway with Bird on her upcoming projects πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š
