No tricks, just treats!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun little Halloween card made with a whole lot of die cutting and very little stamping! I know for me, sometimes with designer series paper I always find a design that has me scratching my head and wondering how am I going to use it? That’s how I felt with the design I used for today’s card and even though there is the same exact design in black and white, which I feel is easy to use with just a pop of color, figuring out what to design with Cajun Craze took a little bit of thinking. In the end, I decided to keep it a little simple and tie in some coordinating colors!

For the base layer, you will use this design cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I did cut the 12” x 12” piece of DSP for 6 base layers and 6 strips (3/4” x 4”) for the inside:

For the card front, you will need:

1. On Pumpkin Pie cardstock, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the spooky house stamp from Everything Essential in Memento ink and used the fourth largest Layering Circle Die to cut out.

2. Use the second largest circle Stitched Shapes Die to cut out of Cajun Craze cardstock, this will be layered under the Pumpkin Pie cardstock die-cut circle

3. Use the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die to cut out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, the will be layered under the Cajun Craze cardstock die-cut circle.

4. Use the double bat die to cut out of Black Glitter Paper.

5. Use the detailed edge die to cut out of Basic Black cardstock.

I used liquid glue to adhere the Basic Black cardstock die-cut to adhere about half-way down from the edge on the right side:

The layered die-cut circles are adhered on the left side of the DSP base layer and I used black dimensionals to adhere the die-cut glitter bats as shown:

This completed piece is adhered to a Basic Black cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, adhere the ¾” strip of DSP along the left side, and I used my Stamparatus to line up the sentiment from Hallows Night Magic to stamp in Cajun Craze ink:

Isn’t this a fun Halloween card? Since I did make six of these cards (gotta use up that DSP!), I prefer to get all my die cutting out of the way, so I created a template with the negative Pumpkin Pie cardstock for stamping in my Stamparatus, especially since the house stamp needs to be inked and stamped twice to get a good stamped image!
