Happy Haunting Shaker Tag

Well, I just have a quick post to share today with a fast and easy Halloween shaker tag.  I love crafting for Halloween, so it came together just as I had envisioned it.  Don't you love it when that happens?

I started with some of my favorite REVERSE CONFETTI stamps and dies:

After creating the basic shaker tag, I just embellished it with the ribbons and button, and finished it off with the strip of white that I added the sentiment to and the spooky bat for lots of dimension.  Since I curved the sentiments strip, and then placed the bat on top, he sits a good 1/2" away from the tag itself.  

I did try something I hadn't done in the past.  I used a foam "pop dot" solid sheet for my outside edge.  I actually cut it using the Web Tag Layer, and just trimmed out the inside of it (the web part), basically cutting the web part out and just leaving the "frame" of the tag layer.  It worked out pretty nice!  Next time, I'd rather use some black pop dot sheet just because of the colors I chose for my tag.  I ended up coloring the outside of my foam edge that showed with a black sharpie.  I highly don't recommend that.  It took forever to dry and I still have black ink all over my hands!
