Good morning! I hope you’re doing well. I’m mostly over my face cold from last week, and we survived my last-minute crafting of Halloween costumes on Saturday. And today I have a fun shaker card for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Trick or Treat challenge (the Trick or Treat challenge is Halloween or Fall cards).
My card base is Real Red, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. The designer series paper is from the Country Lane paper, and I cut the circle using a die from the Layering Circles framelits. I taped the chicken wire to the back of the paper, then added a 3-3/4″ square piece of Window Sheet behind that. I added Foam Adhesive Strips around the shaker and all around the back of the designer series paper. I added the sequins to the center of the circle, then attached a piece of Whisper White cardstock (3-3/4″ square) behind the shaker area. Then I attached the whole shaker to the card base with more foam strips and glue.
To decorate the front of the card, I cut three leaves from Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Cajun Craze cardstock using the Detailed Leaves thinlits dies. I stamped the sentiment in Crushed Curry on Whisper White cardstock, then punched the ends of the sentiment with the Banner Triple Punch. I distressed the edges of the sentiment banner with the edge of my Snips. I added the Galvanized Clip and the Braided Linen Trim for final touches.
I will have a tutorial video for this card later in the week. Make sure you head over to Stamp Ink Paper and play along with our challenge!
