Happy weekend my friends! I’m still on the Halloween roll so I have another fun one to share with you today. It’s a shaker card featuring lots of goodies from Pretty Pink Posh – some from the new release and some older.
I started my card by die cutting the boo shaker die twice from black cardstock. Then I cut 2 pieces of vellum to fit and used liquid glue to adhere it to the back of one and front of another. Then I lined the edge with foam tape, sprinkled my shaker bits and sealed it up. This way my shaker mechanism is it’s own thing and I can move it around to decide final placement.
Next, I stamped and colored images from Halloween Pals with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I arranged them around my Shaker mechanism and used liquid glue to adhere them where possible.
Next, I decided to ink blend my background…big shocker, I know. Haha. I used seedless preserves, ripe persimmon and carved pumpkin. I spritzed it with my distress sprayer and flicked black acrylic paint on it too. After trimming the ink blended panel down, I adhered it to an A2 card base and adhered my shaker and images with a combination of foam squares and liquid glue.
Full transparency…didn’t like how plain it was and wanted another sentiment so I carefully used my MISTI and stamped Happy Halloween below the shaker. Then I stamped and heat embossed the stars in the set with glow in the dark embossing powder, die cut and adhered them with liquid glue as well. This made me super happy!
I went and hid in my closet with my card and boy did those stars glow! It was super cool and made me happy. After this was a success I went back to the craft room for finishing touches on my card.
I used black glaze pen on the critter eyes and glossy accents on their noses, hats and the pup’s hook. Then I used Stickles on the pumpkin openings for glitzy light coming through their jack-o-lanterns.
I had so much fun creating this card and hope you liked it too!
