Throwback Thursday Lovely Lemons Shaker Card Tutorial
Hello, Friends! Because summer and citrus go together I’m offering up a Lovely Lemons Shaker Card Tutorial. Yes, friends, it’s Throwback Thursday again at long last! It’s been a busy summer, and I have fallen behind in work, in housekeeping, in answering mail and responding to comments on the blog. How life gets so busy, I’ll never know. But I was determined to get a Throwback Thursday tutorial out to you this week. And I did it! Phew!
Lovely Lemons and Buzzing Bees
This throwback Thursday takes us back to 2019 when Prima Marketing released their luscious Fruit Paradise collection. Oh, how I love the fruit images and summer color palette of these papers!
I’ve paired the papers up with some scrumptious Lemon Beautiful Board, summery blossoms and Bee embellishments from Reneabouquets. Every time I look at this card, all I can think about is lemon meringue pie!
Did you spy the little shaker window on the right hand side of the card? You will learn how to make that with the Spellbinders June 2021 Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month. It’s a quick and fairly easy way to make a shaker element.
This busy bee is drawn to the flowers like….well bees to honey, I suppose! I’ll link the flowers in the supply list at the end of this post.
A Peek Inside
The lemon theme carries over to the inside of the card…which doubles as a gift.
There’s a gift card pocket on the top of the card along with a little note card and room to add a photo…or a recipe for something lemony and delicious!
The box pocket has a tea wallet, honey stick, vintage spoon and cookie packet. When the treats are consumed, you could store your favorite lemon recipes in the pocket. Then display the card in your kitchen as part of your home décor.

Please note: Throwback Thursday posts are designed to encourage you to dig into your stash of lovely older paper collections. Sometimes the products I use are no longer available for purchase. If I do not link a product, it’s because I could not find it for you. Thanks for understanding!
- Prima Fruit Paradise Collection
- this is all I could find left of the collection online. I used 12×12 foiled papers, but you could get similar results with the A4 pad. I also used chipboard and the 3×4 journal cards.
