Good Morning Vic here today.
I love making fun cards and this Halloween card is great for kids to make too.
For this card I used:
- Black Plain Card 240gsm
- White Card Super Smooth 250gsm
- Dark Violet Plain Card 240gsm
- Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm
You will also need:
Halloween Stamps (My Favorite Things)
- Copic Markers
- Circle Die
- White embossing powder
- Versamark Ink
- Heat Gun
To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of Black Plain Card 240gsm to 4 1/8" x 5 7/8". I then trimmed down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm smaller than the card base and adhered this inside the card so that you can write your greeting inside.
Using some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsm stamp all your Halloween images onto the card. I used Copic markers to colour them in but feel free to use other markers. Once this is complete trim them out and place aside.
Next using a piece of Black Plain Card 240gsm trim this down to the same size as your card front and place a circle die in the middle. Run this through your die cutting machine. Turn this over and adhere acetate to the back. Next add foam tape all around the edges of the circle and to the back of the card. Fill up the center with sequins and gems. Once this is done add your card base over the top of this. Your shaker part is now complete.
Next I heat embossed the sentiment onto some Violet Plain Card 290gsm and heat set this with my heat gun. Trim down and adhere to your card.
Lastly add all your Halloween images onto the card.
Your Halloween shaker is now complete!
