Thanks for stopping by again. Recently I had a coworker ask for some interactive Halloween cards for her grandkids. They are ranging in age and I thought a shaker card would be perfect for the littlest. Then I came across this awesome burst die from Avery Elle and immediately wanted to try the peek-a-boo scary pals with it!
I went with the burst shape and decided to make a square card. The final card size is 4.25×4.25 so it still mails in a standard A2 size envelope.
To make this card I splattered pearl and gold watercolor on a black panel, then die cut the burst die and the largest circle from the set out of the middle. Next, I adhered acetate to the back of the window and added three layers of foam around the edge for the shaker pocket. I took the circle that came out of the burst center and glued it down to the card front. Then scooped sequins, glitter, pearls and bubbles to the center and secured the window over the top. I had already chosen my scary pals so I stamped, colored, die cut and then glued them down. Last I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment on gold paper and glued it to the front. Finishing touches were just adding black glaze pen to the eyes and white gel pen accents to the monsters.
I love shaker cards! They are so fun to shake around and also just fun to look at. I’ve said it a million times but the peek-a-boo pals are one of my all-time favorite lines of stamps. They are so different, versatile and fun! I hope this kiddo enjoys their Halloween card.
I appreciate you sharing you time with me. Have a fabulous day!
