A BOO-tacular Halloween Shaker Card!

img_0284Hello Everyone!  Stephanie here with a fun Halloween shaker card featuring the most adorable Ghost Dies by Gina Marie Designs.  I just had to pair these dies with Kat’s BOO-tacular Sequin Mix, just look at those adorable shaker bits shaped like ghosts!  They’re so cute and they coordinate with the ghost dies perfectly!  I used this sequin mix as my color inspiration and created my own chevron pattern to match, using a fun (and surprisingly easy) technique that I’ll share with you below.

 

 

 

I started out crimg_0281eating my chevron pattern by cutting 1/4″ strips of paper to match my color scheme.  I adhered them to an A2 card base using a double sided adhesive in a diagonal pattern.  You really could just leave it like this and it would be beautiful, but if you’d like to take it a step further it’s not hard to create the chevron design.  I simply made a second panel, this time with the diagonal going in the opposite direction.  I then cut both of the panels into 1/4″ strips and alternated them to create the chevron design.  I think the results are worth the extra effort.

 

img_0282I used the smallest circle in the Double Stitched Circle Dies by Kat Scrappiness to cut two shaker windows out of some white cardstock.   I also added a Stitched Scalloped Border along one edge for added detail.  To add some color to the inside of the shaker windows, I blended some Mowed Lawn and Wilted Violet Distress Inks to the stitched circles.

I decided to add a little extra sparkle to the background, so I adhered a thin strip of black glitter cardstock from my stash to the left edge of my background panel.  Now it’s time to start assembling the card.  I added a piece of acetate and double sided foam tape to the back of my white panel and added the BOO-tacular sequin mix before adhering it to my background.

img_0275Next I added my ghosts, along with some die cut letters to spell out the word BOO!  If you don’t have letter die cuts I also think these Thickers would be really cute.  Of course I had to finish off the card with a bakers twine bow and some sequins from the same B00-tacular mix I used inside the shaker.

That completes my card for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by!
