Lilypad Lake for May Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the May Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom. You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Anastasia Radloff's blog. Welcome one and all. 

The theme for our blog hop this month is anything "masculine" so I picked a Father's Day card.

Lilypad Lake Shaker Card Fathers Day

This Father's Day card, although it may not be readily apparent at first glance, is a shaker card, and not just any shaker card, but a peek-a-boo shaker card using the Lilypad Lake Stamp Set.  I used the 2 1/4 Circle punch and the largest Scallop Circle die to create this shaker on the front flap. I stamped and colored two (2) sets of the sail boats. One set of the boats is "inside" the shaker with Tranquil Textures Sprinkles (hurry, these are retiring). The second set is on the inside of the card! (See below)

The top layer of DSP is from the Garden Impressions 6x6 DSP. The front of the card is further embellished with the "Celebrate" die from the Celebrate You die set and wrapped with Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon and a tiny tag with the Night of Navy Medium Baker's Twine. Of course, there are several sheets of the Tranquil Textures DSP that would also work for this card, but I could not find any leftover pieces large enough to use for the front of my card. This worked just as well.
