Well, I know it’s only the middle of August, but I made this DIY Happy Halloween Shaker Card last week, and I wanted to share it with you.
How many of you love Halloween? Halloween is my most favorite holiday, and I plan to make lots of cards this year, just because!!
So, I have a sequin fetish and love making shaker cards. Therefore, I will continue creating them for a long time to come. I think a lot of people out there like shaker cards. I really enjoy creating them.
This DIY Happy Halloween shaker card was made with the Cricut Joy. The only thing I didn’t cut out with the Joy, because it was too big, was the card base. Instead, I cut that with a paper trimmer.
All you need is cardstock, some Halloween colored sequins, a piece of acetate and some glue. My go to glue is Art Glitter Glue (it doesn’t have glitter in it), which you can get from Amazon.
You can cut the whole thing out with your Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 if you don’t want to cut out the card base with a paper trimmer.
I cut out seven layers of the shaker part of the card, so I could layer the pieces together to form a well deep enough for the sequins. I layered the acetate between layers six and seven. The easiest way to add the sequins to the individual wells is to use a small spoon.
I have this file in my free Resource Library that you can get below. I’m going to make another one of these, so I can give one to each of my nephews. The second one I make I will use black cardstock for the Happy Halloween.
Leave me a comment below and let me know if you make one of these (or several!!).
Until next time…
