31 Nights of Halloween Night 31 - Hourglass and Winners Announced!

It's my favorite day of the year, and I'm excited to announce all of the winners from our 31 Nights of Halloween event!
 THANK YOU to all our awesome customers who entered, shared, and participated in our spooktacular festivities. 

And what better day to share with my fellow Halloweeners one of my favorite cards.
 Keep reading to the end for a link to all the winners from our 31 Nights of Halloween Give-a-ways!

This card came together super easy using the slimline SurREALLY Cool Halloween papers, and the killer cool new slimline Hourglass die

I trimmed the (girl) SurReally Cool Halloween paper down to 2.75 x 8.25 and added it to a black card base. Prepping for my shaker card, I trimmed the sunburst paper down to 3.25 x 8.25 and used the slimline Hourglass die to cut out the hour glass shape from the center. Then added clear acetate to the back and then foam tape all the way around the hourglass shaped opening, making sure there were no gaps/openings that would allow any shaker pieces to escape.

I die cut the black spindles, the hourglass topper, and the hourglass base pieces twice each and glued the matching pieces together to make them each two layers thick. I like the stability and dimension of stacking dies and I typically do that with all my die cut pieces often even more than two layers.

 Once I had them stacked I added some foam tape to the back of all the pieces (except the two feet). For the two feet I just kept those a single piece each because I didn't need the dimension for those.  

(*I fully assembled the hourglass before adding it to the card front.)

On the card base I added the Sprinkletz shaker pieces that I wanted toward the bottom of the girl, then placed the foam backed sunburst hourglass piece on top. Then carefully placed the fully assembled black hourglass to the front. 

My final step was to add the black feet using tweezers to easily tuck them underneath the base. 

This is just one of the many ways to assemble/use the Slimline Hourglass die, there are so many cool options for this die, I hope you find it as fun and easy as I do. And I hope you have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Until next year my friends...Mwaaaahahahaaa!
