Mini Halloween Shaker Cards with Pretty Pink Posh

Saturday, September 30, 2023

I love the idea of having something non-treat related for the holiday and these tiny shaker cards are perfect for such occasions. Before starting the video, I cut my Mini Scallop Card Dies with some orangey-pink cardstock and made shaker frames with black cardstock and a generic nested square that fit nicely inside the stitched square in the die set.

I start with making the background since it needs the most time to dry. Using white cardstock, I stenciled the Spooky Sky Stencils with Distress Oxides (Lost Shadow for the clouds and Black Soot for the bats) and stencil paste. I used yellow to make the stars pop!

While the background was drying, I stamped and colored my Halloween Signs Stamp Set images with alcohol markers. I used the Halloween Signs Coordinating Dies to cut them out. With black ink, I stamped different sentiments into the signs and they are just the cutest! My background was dry enough so I splattered on some purple metallic watercolor and trimmed them down to just slightly smaller than 2.5x2.5”.

I assembled the shaker panels with acetate and thick foam tape, you can see each step in today’s video! I then adhered the panel to my orangey-pink mini cards as well as white square on the inside with a Halloween sentiment stamped in purple. I hope you like these mini notecards and they inspire you to make some cute mini cards for Halloween!
