Fall is my favorite season and it is that time of the year when I start creating Halloween cards to send to my friends. Is orange the new pink during Halloween? haha! I’m back today with this very simple Halloween shaker card, showcasing the Toil & Trouble stamp set with matching dies. This stamp set was released last year but they are still available at the shop.
I started out by stamping my cat image on some white card stock using shades of gray and black inks. Even though this image has a coordinating die, I went ahead to fussy-cut the image.
I die-cut and dry-embossed some white card stock with an embossing folder from my stash. The middle part cuts out so I colored those pieces with my Copic markers. I adhered this piece onto my card base, and added some 6 mm Black Flat Flower Sequins and Metallic Silver Solid Star Confetti with my Nuvo Craft Spoon.
I adhered some acetate and added foam adhesive to create my shaker well. I adhered my embossed card panel onto my card base.
To finish my design I adhered the cat and added the Witch’s hat and the black bats, then stamped the sentiment next to the cat. I also added some color to the cat’s ears with my Copic markers. Here’s a little close-up:
I love the simplicity of this card. I also used my white gel pen to add some details to the witches hat. I love how this card turned out.
