A Wicked Halloween Card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and quick Halloween card! With less than 2 weeks till Halloween, I double checked my Halloween card stash (yes, I do send cards at Halloween!!) and surprise, surprise….I’m behind! So I came up with today’s card that is very easy to duplicate and make multiples of, I made four of these exact cards. Let’s face it, when it comes to holiday cards, we all want to make those super cute and fancy cards, but sometimes LIFE happens and then it’s crunch time! Lol

The base layer is Smoky Slate cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and stamped with the spider web stamp in Memento Ink around the outer edges of the cardstock:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Enough Basic Black Satin Ribbon to tie around the base layer into a bow.

2. Stamp the pumpkin from Gather Together on Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Early Espresso ink, cutting out with coordinating die. Use the Bronze Stampin’ Blend for the stem and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend around the shadows of the pumpkin.

3. Use the spider die to cut out from Black Foil Sheet.

4. One Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink and cut out with the fourth largest Stitched Nested Dies. Use a Sponge Dauber with Smoky Slate ink around the edges and then adhere the skull and crossbones enamel shape.

Tie the ribbon around the base layer into a bow:

Adhere the pumpkin, sentiment and spider with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals:

Adhere this completed piece to a Gorgeous Grape cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink, the bats are stamped in Memento ink, and then use a Sponge Dauber with Smoky Slate ink around the edges of the cardstock:

Fun and easy Halloween card, right?? When I was prepping this card, I found it easier to cut the Stitched Nested Die from the cardstock first and then I used one of the cut outline pieces as a base to place the cardstock in with my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment. I find this process the easiest when I have multiple sentiments, no need to stamp and then try and make sure that it’s lined up for cutting with a punch or die.

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
