Well, it's Monday once again and that means it is MM time over at CA&Friends. This week the delightful miss Joy is hosting and her challenge is to create a shaker card!
Now I have seen some amazingly fabulous shakers out there... I'm even lucky enough to have one of Mama's beauties gracing my work space but I won't lie, when Joy emailed me about her challenge I felt a small sense of dread because I just don't do many of these creative, more involved, kinds of cards. I kept putting off working on it until an idea finally struck... what if I used an old plastic clam shell packaging from some embellishments to create a Halloween treat shaker? So that's exactly what I did... I like to think of it as the "lazy man's shaker card", LOL! ;)
Cheating or not, I really had fun putting this together and best of all it was still quick and easy! All I did was alter Creeper Friday by wiping away her headphones with a baby wipe before stamping then drawing hair back in to the empty space. Once that was done I put her head on Creeper Tuesday's body. I also added the witch's hat from the Spooktacular set to complete her new witchy look. Her li'l sidekick, Jacko is also part of the Spooktacular set. To finish it all off I added gems for stars and a rub-on sentiment to the outside of the plastic container.
Here's a close-up of the shaker part of the card, I filled it up with mini M&M candies... yum! :)
I've got to say that if I can make a shaker card, anyone can. And I really hope to see you all play along this week too!
