Arcade Game Shaker Card

 Most people wouldn't guess that my husband is super skillful at arcade games in Japan. He's won a bunch of giant stuffed animals for me; it was my job to figure out how to get them home...heeheehee! When I saw this Lawn Fawn 'You're Clawsome' die set at HM Ben Franklin crafts, I knew that I had to have it to make cards for my arcade game superstar husband.  This card started with a sheet of Bo Bunny printed cardstock from a paper pad.  I sized it to fit a Snippets yellow card (with matching envelope from a 3 pack).  I stamped the arcade game image on the printed card stock and used a craft knife to cut out the opening.  I stamped the game image on blue cardstock, stamped the words at the top and colored in the knobs and buttons with a grey Copic pen.  I fussy cut the blue parts and glued them to the matching parts of the first stamped game image. In the back of the cut out window I glued  a clear acetate sheet.
 Onto a piece of white card stock I stamped the game image and colored it in before centering it on the yellow card front behind the window. The die cut unicorn and claw were glued to the window with Glossy Accents.  To form the shaker portion I simply folded lengthwise four strips of card stock and adhered them behind the card front, outside the edges of the window. Using double stick tape the whole front piece of the card was put into position after a few pinches of flower sequins were centered in the card.

For the inside of the card I stamped some of the typewriter print words and sparkled up a few bears with  glitter before adhering them with foam pop dots.
I think this arcade game shaker card turned out almost exactly as planned...that's always nice!  I enjoyed using these Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets so much that I'm sure I'll make more cards and tags with them.  Maybe I'll use them to make a photo frame for pictures of me hugging giant stuffed Rikkumas and Pompompurin. LOL!
