Ghost Shaker Card

I really liked this spooky tree frame stamp that I purchased from TAJ Clubhouse in Ward Warehouse. I thought that it would make a great shaker card so I stamped it on some brown card stock and extra thick brown foam. I cut out the inside of the frame of both the card stock and foam. I glued (Beacon 3 in 1) an acetate sheet behind the card stock frame before gluing the foam frame behind it. This made the shaker frame and it was easy work  to snip the shanks off some Dress It Up Halloween buttons. The house with the moon was glued down to a purple top folding card blank and the ghosts with some sequins were placed under the window before the frame was glued down.
Here is the TAJ sentiment that I stamped inside the card.  I added two cute TAJ images and some Doodlebug washi tape (from HM Ben Franklin Crafts) inside and on the front for a punch of color.
 I truly love making and shaking shaker cards. This one was especially fun because I used the ghost buttons instead of just sequins.  (Remember: You will need a thick foam sheet to make the window or the ghosts will not move.)  Go and check out all the fun Halloween stuff at BFC....lots of buttons and washi tapes. Halloween crafting will definitely make you happy!
