Halloween Shaker Card Tutorial

Hi Crafters! Valerie here today, and I decided to create a fun Halloween shaker card for today’s post!

The Colorful Halloween Background

I started by making a very colorful background with three Distress Oxide inks (Carved Pumpkin, Lucky Clover, and Seedless Preserves). When I got my desired colors blended, I added a thin layer of Hickory Smoke Distress Ink over the paper.

Next, I got all my die cutting done:

Here is where I used my E-Z Runner Grand Dispenser to attach the black base to the top of the card, and then the colorful background piece centered on top of the black base:

Make the Shaker

First, I used my E-Z Dots Permanent Dispenser to attach the very bottom piece of the shaker unit to the card front:

I used the same adhesive to adhere this purple piece on top of the black one:

And I was thrilled to see my beloved E-Z Dots Permanent Dispenser also worked on this foam piece:Halloween Shaker Card Tutorial by Valerie Ward for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This piece goes on top of the purple piece and the black piece and will hold the shaker pieces.

I used various Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Once again I pulled out and used my trusty E-Z Dots Permanent Dispenser on top of the foam frame piece.Halloween Shaker Card Tutorial by Valerie Ward for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

And here is where I put down the transparent piece.

Add the Finishing Touches

For the colored images that will lay flat on the card, I used my E-Z Dots Permanent Dispenser.

There are pieces that will need to be raised up because they will partially be attached to the raised shaker portion, so I added 3D Foam Circles Black Mix to them:

I decided to add some sequins to the front of the card and to do that I used Adhesive Dots Micro.

I like to put the Adhesive Dots Micro directly onto the card, and then attach the sequins on top of them:

Now the card is complete, and these are the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products I used on this project:
