Witches Brew Halloween Shaker Card: Authentique Twilight
Hello, Friends! Double, double, toil and trouble….this Witches Brew Halloween Shaker Card made with Authentique Twilight papers makes me grin every time I see it!
Looks like this witch had a few sips too many of that witches brew and fell off her broomstick, doesn’t it? Good thing her black cat is the designated driver! LOL I confess, I spent way too much time making this whimsical card, but I was having too much fun to quit! The shaker box is framed with Becca Feeken’s frightfully fabulous Cannetille Rectangle Die. Simply back it with clear cardstock, then use Darice Foam Strips to build the elevation. (It sounds so easy on paper…but it does take a little time, patience and a few incantations to get it right!)
Fill the frame with tiny star and gold sequins along with a few small buttons for a really fun shaker mix.
TIP: Before adhering the shaker box to the card base, paint the sides with black chalk paint to help it blend in with the card.
Witches Brew Halloween Shaker Card: The Embellishments
Embellishing this card was where I had the most fun. The broomstick is actually a miniature mop that I dipped into glimmer mist. Next, brush it with Black Soot Distress Stickles and sprinkle on some Platinum Distress Glitter. Finally, wrap the handle with a scrap of designer paper.
Die cut a rosette an top with the clock cabochon. Then mat the BOO sticker on some Black Jack and Orange Blossom cardstock and tuck behind the rosette. Tie a double loop bow with 3/8″ black satin ribbon. Use the tips of your scissors to push it into a little glue puddle behind the rosette.
TIP: Run a straight pin through the back side of the BOO sign, then insert the pin into the rosette. This holds it secure in just the right spot.
Die cut the witch hat and legs from designer paper. Cut the legs from the Twilight stripe, then cut the boots a second time from the black bones paper and adhere on top. I’ve brushed the witch hat, boots and bats with more Black Soot Stickles. It doesn’t show up very well in the photo, but it looks awesome in real life.
Witches Brew Halloween Shaker Card: A Peek Inside
This card folio does double duty as a mini photo album. The top half is actually a 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ accordion fold pull out page.
The pocket on the bottom of the card holds a little treat wallet.
Write your ghostly greeting here, tuck in a tasty chocolate treat and then put it in the pocket!
I’m having the best time with this Spook-tacular paper collection. I have more ideas to share with you later this month, so be on the lookout. And remember…don’t drink witches brew and then fly, or you might fall off your broomstick!
