SSINKspiration Fancy Fold Challenge #SSINKFF3 Shaker Cards: Lemon Zest

Good morning!  It's always a little extra fun when you get a card that's a littler interactive that you can play with and enjoy.  This months fun fold challenge over on the SSINKspiration blog is shaker cards which definitely falls into that interactive card group and even though they look hard, they're actually pretty easy.

For the today's card I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base and envelope from the Tutti-Fruitti Cards and Envelopes pack (a SAB Freebie) which has some fun patterns on both the cardbase and envelope.  Next I used the Big Shot and Layering Squares Framelits to make the piece that looks like a polaroid picture using Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Lemon Zest stamp set and stamped the greeting in Basic Black ink before making the shaker piece.  I added a piece of Window Sheet behind the window and then Foam Adhesive strips around the opening to seal in the sequins.  I used the Metallics Sequin Assortment for lots of fun colors.

To finish off the card I stamped the lemon using Daffodil Delight ink and the leaf in Lemon Lime Twist before punching them out with the coordinating Lemon Builder Punch and attached it with dimensionals.  I used some Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine to make a double bow to balance out the card.

The bright colors and sparkly sequins are sure to brighten someone's special day and I stamped a cheeky citrus saying for the inside (also from the stamp set) at add to the fun.  The other design team members are sharing some great shaker cards so go check them out for inspiration and we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.
