Ghost in the Camera Halloween Shaker Card with APG October Die of the Month Club
Hello, Friends! Halloween Hijinks are afoot in this Ghost in the Camera Shaker Card! First I paired up Authentique Paper’s Masquerade Collection with the Amazing Paper Grace October 2020 Die of the Month. Then I invited Reneabouquets Beautiful Board, Buttons Galore Novelty Buttons, and Really Reasonable Ribbon to this Ghostly Masquerade party. Those mischievous little ghosts employed a little hocus pocus to trap a masked couple inside the lens of this spooky little camera.

Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Vignette Camera: Poof! You’re a Shaker Element
The Vintage Vignette Camera Die is designed to function as a pop up element. But you can easily turn it into a shaker element. Here’s how:
- First die cut the camera body from black cardstock. Place the largest and next to the larges lens circles inside the aperture of the camera.
- Then cut the camera body again just as you did with the black cardstock. But this time use patterned paper.
- Now remove the lenses from the aperture and die cut from patterned paper again. This will be the back of the shaker element.
- Next, Die cut the little camera body again from clear cardstock (acetate). Be sure to take the lenses out! We need a solid piece of acetate.
- Now die cut the top of the camera from both black cardstock and a complementary pattern.
- Use the camera lens to cut the masquerade couple from a 3×4 card
- Layer the pieces in this order:
- Patterned camera body with aperture
- Black camera body with aperture (stagger this so the black border shows)
- Clear cardstock.
- 3 rows of 1/8″ foam strips on the back of this assembly
- Patterned paper camera body without the aperture
- center the die cut couple on this piece so that the line up with the aperture on the other piece.
- Now fill the body of the shaker frame with some sequins.
- Then attach the solid back to the back of the camera.
Now you are ready to decorate your card! That’s always the fun part for me.
Create your own embellishment by layering the Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board witch over the laser cut pumpkin. I treated the pumpkin with Seth Apter Taos Sunset Baked Enamel.
A Peek Inside
Create a little inside the easel. Then die cut a few of the tabbed photo mounts that come in the kit. Tuck these into a decorative little folio and store in the pocket. This is the perfect place to add some pics of your favorite ghouls and goblins.
