Quick DIY Halloween Shaker Cards

Jennifer Snyder here with some last minute Halloween shaker cards.  
Halloween is coming quickly and I still have some cards to mail out.  Good thing the cards are all mad and ready to share with you.  They feature Creative Embellishments new bat shaker and witch hat shaker designs.
Below are the images of the shakers.  Totally darling and large enough to be the statement piece on your card.  These are also great to keep in mind when you start scrapping those adorable  Halloween photos.  Yep, they make great embellishments on a scrapbook page.

What makes the chipboard shakers from Creative Embellishments so fabulous is the pre-cut acrylic piece that comes with each shaker set.  That’s very important.  The acrylic window is always the most stressful part of creating the shaker.  CE took that stress off the table and made crafting with the shaker a totally enjoyable and easy process. 

The shakers didn’t need much treatment.  The Bat shaker – I painted all the pieces of the bat with black acrylic paint and set aside to dry.  I also painted the edges of each piece.  The Witch Hat Shaker  – I decided not to paint black, but to use black distress ink to darken the base and top layer of the shaker.  I thought the distress ink matched well  with the Authentique patterned paper used. 

As mentioned above, the papers chosen are from Authentique’s Twilight 12×12 collection.
