This is a paper bag card/album. You can't see it very well, but the background on the cover and the sheet on the inside left have some shimmer to them. They were made using a sprintzer filled with water, a couple drops of distress ink refill and some PearlEx powder (we ironed it to dry it quickly).
This one is using a new glitter substance that looks like sand. Just use glitter glue and sprinkle on the substance and "Wallah" a sandy beach.
