Challenge up your life: Challenge #27 Shaker Card

Hello Crafters,

isn't it amazing how time flies? It's almost Halloween. I've been crafting a lot lately, only no cards. My girls and I are having a Halloween party this year, so we had a lot of preparation to so. But right now it's Challenge time again, over at

These two weeks it's all about Shaker cards!

Challenge #27 Shaker card

I got those stars at the dollar store, I wanted to use. And as I was still very busy with Halloween decorations, I wanted something quick and - well - messy. So I created a background with some distress inks and the ink smooching technique.

Then I heat embossed the sentiment and die cut the stars. Instead of foam tape I used non-dimensional adhesive this time, so the stars don#t move as much. In hindsight, I think I would have liked it better with foam. I adhered it all to a black card base, because I thought that would bring out the silver stars more.

So, go haunt your craft space and show us some shaker cards!

Wishing you all a creepy Halloween!
