1st Halloween Shaker Card

When I first saw this DINO UNICORN STAMP it reminded me of those pics of cute babies in fuzzy Halloween costumes and knew I needed to make a card for a baby’s first Halloween!  This digital stamp is part of Craftin Desert Divas September release this week!

This card was a pretty quick one to make.  I started by resizing, printing, and coloring the DINO UNICORN DIGITAL STAMP.  I also created the sentiment, 1st halloween, and printed from my computer.  For the the background, I trimmed white cardstock and inked with fossilized amber & wild honey oxide inks over the beach scene stencil to create the circles.  I actually didn’t mean to ink the top corner but a smudge of oxide ink got up there and I had to cover it.  Don’t you love “Happy Mistakes” as Bob Ross says?!

To make the shaker, I die cut white cardstock and double sided adhesive foam sheet with inside scalloped circle dies and acetate from stitched in circles dies and trimmed the scallops off.  One trick I found is to use tissue paper when you run acetate thru your die cutter, it helps to keep the scratches off!  Next, I adhered the die cut foam circle down and filled with sequins.  Then I layered the acetate on the adhesive foam and then glued the white scalloped die on top.  I added the colored DINO UNICORN to the side.

For the sentiment, I die cut it from flag banner dies and inked with squeezed lemonade & fossilized amber.  I die cut the sweet from my cameo silhouette using green glitter paper and adhered above the banner.  For my final touch I added one more sequin.

If you love Halloween as much as I do, it is the beginning of fall, and the holidays, you can get the whole September digital release for a great price by joining the Digi Club at Craftin Desert Divas.
