Today I would like to share with you a Halloween card I made for a dear friend. I hope you like it! Some of my friends said I should post it on the blog, so here it is!HAUNTED" paper collection and vinyl stickers from My Mind's Eye to coordinate with the card stock. This paper collection is from 2010, but is still available online. I like it because both the front and back of each paper is so beautiful and so versatile!
And, it's flocked! How cool is that?!
"Joy!"brand die I purchased, placed them on the moon, and lightly sprayed Cocoa Bean Copper mist over them.
When the spray was dry, I removed the flourishes, and distressed the moon with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. By spraying the moon (and flourishes) with Cocoa Brown Copper mist (from Lindy's Stamp Gang), then inking the edges of the moon, I was able to achieve the depth and texture I desired. The flourishes were so pretty after they were sprayed that I used them on the card too!
The next step was to cut a 4.5"x 5" piece of card stock from the HAUNTED paper collection for the background. I chose the patterned paper called "Flying Witch". I inked the edges of the paper and adhered it to the front of the card. Once the background was in place, I sprayed the whole card with a light layer of the Cocoa Bean Copper spray. When it was dry, I adhered the sprayed moon to the top-center of the card.
Once the Witch was in place, I selected some flowers from the Prima Almanac collection and some Webster pages Sparklers to embellish the front of the card and envelope. I also sprayed the flowers with the Cocoa Bean Copper mist so they would have the same color sheen as the rest of the card. Using stickers from the HAUNTED set, I stuck a spider and the word "Boo!"inside.
I then added a black cat sticker and some flowers to the outside of the envelope and my Halloween card was finished! I hope you give this card a try, it's easy and doesn't take long to make.
