Halloween Shaker Card | Pink & Main - "Hello Bootiful"



I've got a terrific trio of happy spirits shaking it up for you! These little ghosts from the NEW "Hello Bootiful" Stamp Set are sure to put you in the Halloween spirit and I've loaded them into this shaker card for the perfect treat!

I began by ink blending a panel with "Wilted Violet", "Chipped Sapphire", "Prize Ribbon" and "Black Soot" Distress Oxide inks. I added the "Deco" Stencil design in a random pattern with just the "Black Soot", sprayed it with a couple of pearl mist colors and spattered it with purple paint. The panel was set aside to dry in a heavy book and afterwards die cut with the largest "Layered Slim Line Rectangle Die" (8.5" x 3.5"). I stamped, colored and die cut the three single ghosts from the "Hello Bootiful" Set.

The background panel was attached to a slimline card base, my frame was cut three times from heavy weight black card stock using dies from the same "Layered Slim Line Rectangle" Die Set and I glued/stacked them together. A piece of acetate was attached to the back of the frame and thin strips of double-thick foam tape were added just under the frame. The three ghosts were glued onto the ink-blended panel, I added all of my shaker bits into the center and carefully peeled the release paper on the foam tape halfway on each side. The acetate frame was gently placed on top until I aligned everything correctly and pressed it into the final position, peeling off the release paper pieces.

Using the "Thin Alpha Dies", I cut the word "BOO!" from dark purple glitter paper and attached it to the front of the acetate window with small bits of dotted tape runner. I just love that little ghost at the bottom, sitting in that beautiful sequin pile! This is such a cute stamp set and I can't wait to use it again! Head over to the Pink & Main Shop to see all of the other fantastic fall & Halloween products!
