Lawn Fawn Year SEVEN double window shaker!

I instantly fell in love with the Year SEVEN stamp set. When Lawn Fawn started the Lawn Fawnatics challenge with a birthday theme to celebrate their 7th birthday, this card just had to happen.
I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers, then I stamped the pinata again with the MFT mirror stamp so I could adhere them back to back. This way when the card is open you can see the other side of the pinata. The shaker bits are created with the candy stamps I cut them with the coordinating dies and luckily they are symmetrical and two pieces could be easily adhered back to back!
(I did not take a picture of the mirror image side before I put the card together but below you can see two different options of coloring I considered)
I cut a window in the card base and used foam tape to add dimension before adding the frame I suspended the two pinata images sandwiched with the green embroidery floss. I then added my shaker bits and closed it up. The plaid papers in the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6" x 6" pack were perfect for the finishing touch. 
I had to use the rest of that plaid paper so I used it for the inside frame too.  I finished the inside with the sentiment from the set and a few candy pieces colored to match.
Thanks for stopping by!
