Hello Summer - Sizzix Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to my happy place! I hope you're having a wonderful and creative day.

For today I have a new card made with the awesome die set from the new release from Sizzix UK, called Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 17PK - Summer Time, designed by My Life Handmade and the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 5PK - Stacked Baroque, designed by Tim Holtz!

I started my card by preparing a white card base and a white panel with the same size as the base. 
Then I created a watercolor background using vibrant and summery colors and adhered it to the card base.

Next I die cut a window in the center of the white panel using one of the baroque dies, added an acetate piece and foam tape behind the panel, creating the window for the shaker. I die cut two pairs of flip flops and glued them behind the window, peeking from the margins.

I filled the shaker with a beautiful sequins mix and glued it to the card base. 
Next I die cut a frame from yellow cardstock using two of the baroque dies and framed the shaker window. 
I added a third pair of flip flops on the card and I die cut the hello word die included in the Summer Time die set. 
I also white embossed the summer word on a black strip of cardstock to complete the sentiment for my card and my summery project was done.
