Halloween Shaker Card | Picket Fence Studios - July 2021 Release


Hey there!

This may be one of my favorite cards to date and I had so much fun making it! And surprisingly enough, it wasn't really that difficult (or time consuming) to make! Just some ink blending and die cutting and all came together!

All of the inked panels were spritzed with water and spattered with gold metallic watercolors. 
Here is the list of the panels I ink blended:

1) Slimline card base with an arched die cut top - Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink blended at the top
2) Slimline card front with arched die cut top and the NEW "Witch - Slim Line Die Cutting System Insert" die cut from the center - Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot DOI's
3) NEW "Halloween Graveyard Cover Plate Die" Panel - Squeezed Lemonade and Peeled Paint DOI's
4) Pumpkin row panel from the NEW "Scarecrow Cover Plate Die" - Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot DOI's
5) NEW "Happy Fall Y'all" Word Topper Die - Black Soot

After all of the inked panels were die cut, I assembled the card front by gluing the graveyard scene to the purple background. The pumpkin row was attached on top with foam tape for a bit of dimension and the die cut sentiment was glued on last. The witch was die cut one more time from black card stock, fussy cut around the broom/hat, spattered with gold paint and glued onto the window image.

The front panel window was backed with a piece of acetate and foam tape was added to the entire piece to create the shaker element. I piled the shaker pieces from the NEW "Trick or Treaters" Sequins Mix Plus onto the card base and CAREFULLY attached the front on top! Whew! Attaching the front onto the card base was the hardest part of making this card!

Thanks so much for joining me and for taking the time to comment!

Happy crafting and have a great day!
