Halloween Card | Whimsy Stamps - "UFO" & "Boo" Die Sets



Here's a spooky shaker card that's out of this world featuring a UFO beaming up all of the ghosts in the graveyard! This design started with four distress oxide ink-blended backgrounds - 1) the lemony green full background panel 2) the orange sky with a beam die cut omit from the "UFO Die Set" 3) the spooky trees w/gravestones "Haunted Graveyard Border Die" and 4) the larger gravestone foreground panel using the "Howling Night Die Set".

Each piece was ink blended, spritzed with a shimmer mist, spattered with pearlized paints and trimmed to fit a 4 x 9" shaker card base.

The UFO was cut from heavy weight black card stock glitter, special holographic papers and assembled. Another UFO outline was cut from acetate and attached to the back of the piece. Three of the ghosts from the "BOO Die Set" were cut from heavy weight white card stock and one was attached behind the acetate "glass" window of the UFO.

The lemon panel was glued onto a slimline card base. The orange sky panel was backed with a piece of acetate to create the shaker window and popped up with foam tape. I used the window to determine where my ghosts should be positioned and glued them to the lemon panel. 

The spooky tree panel was positioned to cover the bottom of the light beam and adhered on top. Once I determined where the dark foreground panel should go, I heat embossed the sentiment ("Spirited Sentiments Clear Stamps") with Ranger's "Princess Gold" Embossing Powder and glued it into place on the card front. The final item to be adhered was the UFO die cut at the top of the light beam.

With the entire front window panel complete, I piled my shaker bits (This Calls For Confetti - Candy Corn Mix 2.0)  onto the ghosts, peeled off all of the release paper from the foam tape and very carefully pressed the top panel into place! I just love those mini candy corn pieces in this confetti mix! They are perfect for Halloween shaker cards!
