How to Make a Not So Spooky Halloween Shaker Card.
When it comes to anything Halloween, I like it more “cute” than scary. (big chicken here)
This Not So Spooky Halloween Shaker card uses Dies and Shaker Sprinkles from
The Maker’s Movement’s New Halloween Collection.

- I used the Halloween Scene from the Tricks and Treats paper pad for the base of my card. I cut off a 1/2″ off both sides of the paper, making it 5″ x 6″. (The finished card measures 5 1/4″ x 6 1/4″.)
- Die-cut a large scalloped square frame out of the purple plaid paper from the paper pad.
- Die-cut a large foam square using the foam cutter die. The foam square will fit under the scalloped square frame.
- Because I didn’t want the white sides of the foam showing in my shaker element, I used black calligraphy (chisel point) paint marker to color the outside and inside of the foam square. Place the foam square onto the card base. (as shown above)
- Add “Tricks and Treats” shaker sprinkles into the center of the foam square.
- Cut a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of clear acetate. Remove the blue protective covering from both sides of the acetate.
- Remove the top protective coating from the foam square and place the acetate onto the foam.
- Add adhesive under the purple plaid scalloped square and place it over the acetate lined up with the foam square.
- When cutting small die-cut pieces, I like to run the paper through the Xyron Create a Sticker Mini*. After die-cutting, they become little stickers. That makes applying the die-cuts a whole lot easier.
- Apply the Spider Web die-cut onto the inside corner of the shaker element.
- Add the words “Happy Halloween” onto the front of the card.
I enjoy making cards with dimension and movement.
I think this is one of the simplest shaker cards I’ve made so far.
