pumpkin shaker

today i'm sharing my last halloween card created with the new essentials by ellen got candy? stamps and dies. i love these sets and i'm sure there will be more halloween cards in my future, after all it is only august, but next week, fall!

i created this non-traditional round shaker card with the help of two different size circle from the lawn fawn circle stackables die set to create rings.

to create the shaker pocket, i cut apart a 9-pocket page and filled it with sequins and small star die cuts from the essentials by ellen home & hearth die cut.

to secure my shaker pocket i used a permanent marker to draw a line where i should stitch, i stitched the top and then cut off the excess.

i sandwiched my shaker pocket between the two rings i die cut. and then i stamped and die cut a pumpkin from the got candy set? and a sentiment. i watercolored the pumpkin with spiced marmalade distress ink. and i added a few embossed stars to the front with versamark and detail white powder.

i'm guessing i'll have to write a message on the back of the ring, it will be short but it will be fun to send!

thanks for stopping by!

xo,
carly
