A Warm Hearted Boo!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy Halloween card featuring the Warm Hearted Hostess Set and Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper! Did you notice that one of those cute little Spider Trinkets is “hanging” around?? Lol In case you missed them, there are two hostess stamp sets from the 2018 Holiday Catalog, Warm Hearted and Hung with Care, which you can earn for FREE if you have a qualifying product purchase or host a workshop totaling $150 or more! I chose the Warm Hearted stamp set because it has sentiments for all the upcoming holiday occasions! I just absolutely love the “Boo” sentiment, which is a two-step stamp!

To create this card, first start with a Lemon Lime Twist card base cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The Toil and Trouble DSP design that I used is the same sheet, front and back, the base layer is cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the second layer is cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

For the front of the card, you will need to use the 2 ¼” Circle Punch to cut out a piece from the Black Foil Sheet and then emboss using the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The sentiment is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape inks, on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, punched out using the Tailored Tag Punch, and I used a Sponge Dauber with black ink to sponge around the edges. I cut a piece of Black Satin Ribbon long enough to go across the card front, cutting the ends. The Spider Trinket has a piece of Silver Metallic Thread tied in a knot through the jump ring and cut long enough to wrap around the punched circle piece from the spool:

To put the front of the card together, adhere the two layers of DSP together and then adhere to the card base:

I adhered the ribbon across the middle of the card and then to make the spider dangle, I used two glue dots on the back, placed the thread on the glue dots and then placed two more glue dots on top of those to secure the thread:

I placed the thread in one of the grooves of the embossed foil sheet and then adhered the sentiment on top, this will keep the spider in place. This piece is then adhered to the card base with dimensionals:

For the inside of the card, start with a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the skull is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape inks, the sentiment from Spooky Sweets is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink, and I adhered the scrap piece of DSP along the bottom:

Isn’t that quick and easy?? I just love how the Spider Trinkets add the little extra touch to the card! This is great if you are making Halloween Cards because you can use any of the Toil and Trouble DSP and create multiple cards!!
