Double the Shaker Fun

Hello crafty friends,

Made this card last night for the  Impression Obsession You're Invited Challenge, which ends on Tuesday, October 3rd at 7 p.m.Central Time:

It's a Halloween invitation using the following IO products:

  1. All Hallow's Eve #CL284
  2. Ghost die set #DIE121-E
  3. Small Circle Shake It Pouch #SHP04
  4. Large Circle Shake It Pouch #SHP02
  5. Best Party Ever #D14590 (on card's inside, sorry no photo)
I started by getting my shakers ready.  I stamped my shaker backgrounds, added the sequin and topped them with the self adhesive pouches to seal.  These pouches make creating shaker elements a fast and fun thing.  My stash of them is getting really low, so I have to remember to get some more soon.

Putting my card together was super easy.  I die cut the glitter paper piece for my larger circle shaker and positioned it on my card slightly to the left.  I die cut a thin circle frame from the same orange glitter paper for my smaller circle shaker and position the element over the larger one.  I used foam tape under the smaller circle shaker.  

My finishing touches were to add a ribbon, some Nuvo drops and three die cut ghosts.  On the inside of the card I used the Best Party Ever stamp and added my party details.  This card is going to my parents :) everyone else gets an e-invite. 

Thanks for stopping bye and wish me luck in the challenge :)
