Boo Shaker Card | Tim Holtz Sizzix Halloween

Boo! Hey friends! It may be the 4th of July here in the US, but I'm in a Halloween crafting mood myself! I'm back today to share a Halloween Boo Shaker Card I created using some of the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 3 Dies. You may have seen this project featured during Tim's Facebook Live. If you missed it, you can view it over on Tim's blog. I invite you to it check it out to see this and loads of other Halloween crafting inspiration from all the amazing makers.

For this card I used the new Spider Web and Alphanumeric Upper Shadow Thinlits.

Now let's see how this shaker card came together! To get started, I took a piece of white Bristol paper (you can also use Mixed Media Heavystock) cut to 4 x 5.25" and die cut an opening in the center of it. I used one of the frames from the Curio Box Bigz Die, but any of the Stacked Thinlits would also work.


After creating the opening, I ink blended the paper using a combination of Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves.


I then inked the edges with a bit of Black Soot Distress Oxide, gave the entire piece a spritzing of water with my Distress Sprayer and dabbed it dry.


After the inking was completed, I cut a piece of acetate and adhered it behind the opening. (I got the acetate from a Bigz Die packaging.) I then cut pieces of craft foam and adhered them around the opening. The adhesive of choice...Distress Collage Medium!


The background behind the shaker opening was created used the smoosh technique with a combination of Black Soot, Seedless Preserves and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink. I then adhered a spider web from the Spider Web Thinlits that I die cut from silver Metallic Kraftstock.

As for the shaker filler, I colored Distress Mica Flakes using Purple Twilight Alcohol Ink. I also die cut some spiders from the new Spider Web Thinlits, trimmed off the webbing, and added them to the mix as well. When creating shaker cards, I like to pour the filler onto the background to get a feel on whether I have enough filler or not. I then adhered the shaker box on top.


To decorate the front of the card, I die cut a couple of webs from black cardstock using the Spider Web Thinlits.

I then added the sentiment by die cutting silver Metallic Craftstock using the Alphanumeric Shadow Upper Thinlits. As you can see, I didn't use the shadow part of the die. I love the versatility of this die set...you can use it with or without the shadow to achieve a variety of looks! I also lightly sanded the letters to give them a slightly distressed look. To finish off the card, I layered the entire shaker onto a piece of black cardstock.
