Loved all the shaker cards that Betsy Veldman created for her blog today with the new PTI dies that will be released on the 15th.  So decided to try to make a pumpkin shaker from a PTI die from several years ago. 

After cutting from some orange card, I reshaped the outline part by cutting off the outer sides.  Adhered that to a piece of acetate and then fit and adhered the outer sections back in, leaving the center clear.  Added foam tape to the back, dropped in the sparkly bits and backed it with a piece of orange glitter paper to put it all together.  Mounted this on a piece of HA black layering paper (4"x51/4"), added the "happy" and Wink of Stella - done.  It's really very sparkling and fun in real life!  Now that I have this figured out maybe I'll make a few more - or maybe just buy the new pumpkin shaker die which would be bit easier!!

PTI has a challenge called "Create Along With Us" using inspiration from their team so am entering this card.

Thanks for stopping by today and your kind comments.  Betty


  1. This is so festive Betty! Great idea to leave out the center of this pumpkin die and create a shaker. So creative and fun!

  2. Oh, so cute! I love anything with a pumpkin!!

  3. What a cute idea! All those sparkles inside the pumpkin make for a really pretty, unexpected pop of fun! I can't believe it's already the time of year to make fall cards!

  4. This is SO cute Betty! I love all the sparkly goodness in the center, and that you even used orange sparkle paper behind the pumpkin! Definitely an adorable shaker card!! :0)

  5. Love this pumpkin shaker card Betty! What a fun idea to leave the center out.

  6. Love your pumpkin shaker card, Betty! So sparkly and fun, and I love how you cut out the center to create the shaker component! Very clever :)
