Halloween Birthday Card
Here is a card I made for one of my daughter's friends. It is his birthday tomorrow and my daughter wanted to use the skull embellishement that I had made awhile ago and just had never used.
I turned the skull cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge into a "shaker embellishment" I was pretty pleased with how it turned out but hadn't found a use for it until now.
"Shaker cards" are really easy to make and they pack a lot of WOW factor.
To make this card; - Cutout the skull from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge - Attach a piece of acetate (Old protective covers for the cricut mats work great!) to the back of your skull so it covers the eye and nose openings -Use the Outside Edge pieces of your Stampin Up dimensionals (Foam tape would work too) to create a "box" of dimensionals around the eyes and nose of the skull. Make sure you don't leave any spaces otherwise your glitter will fall out. -Fill your "box" about 1/2 to 2/3 full of chunky glitter -Adhere pop dots to the extremities of your cricut cut -Take the paper backing off of your pop dots -Adhere a piece of black cardstock to your cricut cut -Turn your skull cut over. Freehand cut a shadow around your skull. -Now your piece is ready to add to your card front or scrapbook layout.
Recipe: Paper- Basic Grey patterend cardstock (not sure of the name), Stampin Up black cardstock for the shadow, white textured cardstock from DCWV for skull, cream card base from Micheal's, Orange cardstock from Creative Memories for the insert.
Ink- Jumbo Java versa magic chalk ink
Accessories- Making Memories Tiny Alphas in black and white, Paper Doll Dress Up cricut cartridge for the skull, Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge (Jack Sprat), Chunky gold glitter, Gold eyelets, Stampin Up dimensionals, acetate
