Hello, Friends! I am getting ready to visit my parents for a few days and should be packing. So naturally I decided to make a quick Halloween card using a new die that got delivered yesterday. I am also using several products that I got last year but haven’t used before. Sometimes it takes something new to inspire you to use something old, right?
Memory Box – Boo Posh Script Die
The Stamp Market – Happy Halloween Stamps
The Stamp Market – Happy Halloween Dies
The Stamp Market – Hocus Pocus 6×8 Paper
Trinity Stamps – Slimline Rooftop Border Die
Memory Box – Black Glossy Card Stock
Making the Card
This was a very quick card to put together, mainly because I had very little time! This patterned paper from The Stamp Market helped a lot because I didn’t have to make my own background. I used the Slimline Rooftop Border Die to cut a piece of black card stock and just cut part of it off since I only needed to fill the width of an A2 card. I adhered some gray card stock behind it so that you couldn’t see through the windows to my background and then glued that to the bottom of the patterned paper panel.
I stamped the ghost onto vellum (three times) with VersaMark ink and then white heat embossed it. I cut each ghost out with the matching die and popped them up on the card panel with thin foam squares. I stamped the first layer of each bat with gray ink, stamped the second layer with black pigment ink and then heat embossed that layer with clear embossing powder. Those got popped up on foam squares, as well.
I used glossy black card stock to cut the “Boo to You” words and mounted that on a white shadow. I have many other sentiments similar to this from Memory Box – I just love the look of them. I finished the card with a few sequins from my stash.
I know it’s a simple one, but I hope this card puts a smile on your face! I haven’t really been much into Halloween cards in the past, but the fun sentiments are pulling me in. Leave a comment to let me know if you enjoy making Halloween cards every year. Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Wishing you all a crafty day,
