For March, our theme is This Pun's For You!  I had been eying this stamp set from My Favorite Things for a while and was thrilled to have a good excuse to purchase it!
I wanted to show you all that you can make a more elaborate card but still make it Clean and Simple.  So I put together this shaker card for you.  It will be an awesome interactive card for someone!

I started off with a piece of white cardstock cut to 4" X 5.25", just slightly smaller than an actual card.  I used some low tack tape to keep my Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and the MFT Linked Chain Circle Frame die in place so I could put it through my Big Shot.  I was careful to use a clean, unmarked plate next to the front of my card to avoid transferring any debris or previous cuts in to the front of my card.
I flipped the card over and taped the circle back in to the card as an inlay using some regular tape.  I then used some Lawn Fawn glue to attach a piece of acetate to the back of the panel.
I turned the panel back over so that the front was facing me.  I cut out a second chain circle die in dark green cardstock and then I used more Lawn Fawn glue in little teeny dots on the back of the chain circle die and inlaid it on top of the acetate (I buy overhead projector sheets for laser printers at Staples).  I added the interiors from the white chain circle with more glue.  My little tweezers helped me a lot with those little pieces!
I took my roll of double sided foam adhesive and folded it in half along itself to create the raised circle around the window cut out.  By having it doubled I have more room for the stuff in the shaker and by folding it in half to make it skinny the tape is easier to work around the circle shape.  I added more pieces of doubled up double sided foam tape around the back of the card so that it was all well supported on the card.  What you don't see is that this is where I added some clear hole-less beads and sequins from my stash to the interior of the circle.  I added a little glue to the double sided tape to allow me a little more "move" time to get my card attached to this front since I was doing it blind... the glue allowed some play time.  I also lined up the card front on my grid paper and stood up so I was looking directly down on it to place my card.
I stamped the great TRex image from the MFT You're Rawr-some stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured it with two colour blending using my YG17 and YG23 Copics.  I used the die set and my Big Shot to cut it all out.  I stamped the sentiment in black Versafine Ink and cut it out to create the flag edge and taped it to the front of the card before laying the dinosaur over top of it.  To finish off the card I added some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen to the dinosaur and some bling from my stash to the front of the card.
