The best part about the shaped shakers from the Fright Fest kit is that they create a central focal point for a card and not much more is needed to create an eye-catching design.
One shaker with some patterned paper and a sentiment is pretty much all you need to create an impact.
Of course you could add some additional embellishments too! Sometimes I like to add the little toppings normally used INSIDE the shakers, right on the card itself.
You can glue the toppings down individually or for the teeny tiny stars, you can add a drop of liquid adhesive and sprinkle some on top.
Or, if you really want to wow your recipient, why not try adding TWO shakers to your card?
Many of the shaped shakers are the perfect size to fit two on a standard A2 sized card and some (like the witch’s shoe) seem perfect with two rather than one. The only thing to remember when die cutting something like the witch’s leg out of patterned paper is to flip the paper over for the second leg. Otherwise you will have two right legs!!
Even a simple shape like the Boo shaker can be used two on one card.
I cut the boo out of two different colors of patterned paper from the Mat Stack and then used that same patterned paper flip flopped under the shaker. So, my blue boo was on the orange background and the orange boo was on the blue background. I broke up these two parts with a white heat embossed sentiment on black cardstock.
I love all the Fright Fest shapes so much! Whether you use one or two shakers on your card, you are sure to create a show stopper! Check out this video to see how I used all 7 different shapes on 7 different cards and get to see the elements of the kit up close!
