Tomorrow is Halloween so I thought I’d put up a fun card that I made for my sister’s friend’s party invite.
I started with a Basic Black base cut to 11 x 4 1/4. I folded it in half and then folded the top down about 1″ to make the pocket. I then added some sticky strip to the inside edges to keep it all together.
For the front, I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and on it stamped the large splatter from Extreme Elements (I love this set!). I roughed up the edges and added a strip of Old Olive cardstock in behind it. I punched this with the spiral punch and again roughed it up. I used the hostess set Holiday Best for the sentiment. I decided with the dark colours to stamp it in Basic Black craft ink for a more rich look.
I used the stamp set Twick or Tweet and stamped the little bird in black. I coloured him in using my Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango markers. I punched him out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch, layered him on a 1 3/8″ Basic Black circle and then on an Old Olive scallop circle. Once I decided to add a bit of black gingham, I was ready to add the little guy on with dimensionals.
Lastly, I rounded the corners of the card base and the insert piece, which is Crushed Curry.
Thanks for stopping in and Happy Halloween!
