Halloween Shaker Cards with Vinyl
Updated: Apr 23, 2021
I love a good shaker card, they are so fun to make and also to open and shake away! I paired shaker cards with vinyl and they are a match made in heaven! I used my NEW paper collection Haunt It! to give all these cards a little cutie spooky Halloween vibe.

I made a 2 types of card shapes, one set is square, and one is an rectangle A2 size. Let's start with the A2 cards.
Check out the video to learn how to make these plus see the full collection release!
I used my Haunt It! Collection to make these A2 shaker card with my papers and SVG files. I just love these papers, they so fun and cute, my favorite is the skeletons, but I also love the bats - man I really have a hard time picking just one! Check out the paper collection here.
I paired the papers with the SVG files that I cut out on my Cricut on StyleTechCraft transparent vinyl. I have a TON of fun SVG files that you can cut on any electronic cutting machine. Check out out below.
For these cards I used the BOO! and EKK files. I cut the BOO! in orange and the EKK in green. I sized the file to fit the acetate shaker top and transfer it over using the StyleTechCraft transfer tape. I love that I see the shaker bit and even the papers below since the vinyl is transparent!
I also made some cute mini square cards with a shaker elements on top, because who does not like a cute little card!!
Check out my video to see how I made these cute cards!
I started by building the the base of the card, my cards are 4x4 inch squares. I used the Maker's Movement Witch Please and Spooky Scary stamp and die sets that are make to shaker cards, they are so easy to make cards and super cute too! Once the base of the card was build with the Haunt It! papers I added in the shaker paer cut out with double sided foam. I also cut out transparent vinyl in clear and glitter from StyleTechCraft for the bubbles and the frothy over bubble of the cauldron.
I added some of the vinyl cut bubbles inside the shaker part with the shaker sprinkles.
Then I cut out the top part of the shaker in acetate and placed it on top to seal it and then added the top layer of the cauldron in black and made it a stick with my Xyron sticker maker.
I added the transparent vinyl to the top of the cauldron with the transfer tape and the paper just above, plus a couple bubbles on the top of the acetate. The transparent works great because to can see the shaker bits below!
I just love the look of these cauldron cards with my Haunt It! papers.
I love the bat shaker sprinkles inside the coffin cards. And die cutting out the skeleton in the white vinyl is so easy, best part it is already a sticker so super easy to attach to the acetate shaker top!
For the skeleton card I used white Craft Vinyl to make the bones look a little more white paired with my skeleton papers and I used grey and sliver transparent glitter vinyl on my purple bat paper.
Inside the cards I used my square cards. They are the perfect little inserts for cards, especially square cards!
Each card has it own insert matted on a black background, I love fast and easy card and these square card printables make it so easy!
