It’s my day again over on the Top Dog Dies blog, and today I’m sharing another Halloween card for you all. With Halloween just around the corner I have been creating lots of fun and spooky cards, and today I have a shaker card to share with you all.
When I first saw the Sugar Skull Die Set set I knew it would be perfect for creating Halloween shaker cards.
To create my shaker card I started with a panel of cardstock the same size as my card base and die cut the skull outline from it. I then also lined up and die cut the Halloween sentiment from the Halloween Die Set and stamped the word “Happy” just above it.
Next I die cut the eyes, nose and teeth elements for the skull from some white glitter cardstock, and stuck it down onto some clear acetate which I glued behind the skull die cut to create my shaker window. I then die cut another Halloween sentiment from some black glitter cardstock which I inlaid into the matching sentiment I cut from my panel. I then added some adhesive foam to the back of my panel before pouring in some Halloween mixed sequins, and sticking my card base to the back. Finally I embellished the front with some black enamel dots.
Here is a front on view showing the sequins scattered all around the skull:
I hope this has inspired you today. Have a wonderful weekend.
