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.

Trick or Treat Halloween Shaker Card

Directions:

  • 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.

Die-Cutting Tip…

  • 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.

Creepin’ it Real Halloween Card

Creepin’ it Real…

When it comes to Halloween, I’m not into scary and gore.  (I’m too big of a chicken.)

I’m all about the C-A-N-D-Y!

I love Halloween Parades and seeing the little kids in their cute costumes.

I’m into “Halloween cute”.

The Trick or Treat Stamp Set and Die Set from Maker’s Movement is “Halloween Cute”.  

Sweet little Halloween characters with just the right amount of attitude.

Welcome Trick or Treaters

When it comes to Halloween Decorating, I’m not one to go all out.

Usually a couple of jack-o-lanterns and that’s it.  (I’m pretty low-key)

How do you Welcome Trick or Treaters?

I remember the year my oldest decided that he was too old for trick or treating…

He dressed up in costume… sat in the chair on the porch with a big bowl of candy to pass out.

He sat very, very still.

All the kids thought he was a decoration.

When they’d start to reach and grab the candy he’d scare them.

As I was walking down our street from taking my daughter Trick or Treating that night,

we were warned about the house on the end of the street.

I think that might of been his favorite Halloween.
