A Halloween Shaker Card


Today, I have a Halloween shaker card to share.
I was totally inspired by the shaker card that Betsy Veldman made and decided to make
a similar one, using some Reverse Confetti goodies.


I started by diecutting my black card stock with the rounded rectangle die
from Class Act Confetti Cuts and then trimmed it out to make a frame with my paper trimmer.
I also die cut the apple from Class Act Confetti Cuts (which I turned upside-down to make my pumpkin) and the crow from Cast A Spell Confetti Cuts.
I also die cut the end of the broomstick from Cast A Spell Confetti Cuts to make my pumpkin stem.
I die cut the larger circle from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts from some Authentique patterned paper to make my moon and the vellum clouds were die cut using
I filled my shaker with some 4mm Lemon Meringue sequins from Pretty Pink Posh
as well as some tiny black stars that were die cut using Stars Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts.
I masked one of the sentiments from Cast A Spell with washi tape before stamping it on my moon.



 



Thanks for looking!
