Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a fun and quick card to make featuring the Scary Cute Bundle and the Glitter Washi Tape! While Halloween is just under four weeks away, it will be here before you know it! So, it’s time to finish up your Halloween cards because Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Today’s card is not only super easy to make, but you can make as many as you like, especially with this super cute Glitter Washi Tape! I still have a couple more ideas for Halloween cards, but I thought it would be fun to make a card that had some embossing, die-cutting, and use up some of the Glitter Washi Tape!
The base layer for the card front is a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Gray Granite cardstock, embossed with the Quatrefoil Tile embossing folder, and use a sponge dauber with Gray Granite ink to “color” the embossed side:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Cut a 1 ½” x 4” piece of Gray Granite cardstock and use the Highland Heather, Old Olive, and black Glitter Washi Tape to create the stripes as shown. *Each color of washi tape it ¼” wide, so you can make this smaller or larger base on how much and which colors you want to use.
2. From Basic Black cardstock, use the second from the largest square Stylish Shapes Die and the two small bat dies to die-cut out. Use Wink of Stella on the bat die-cuts.
3. Use the moon die to die-cut from Very Vanilla cardstock and use the sponge dauber with Gray Granite ink to sponge around the edges of the die-cut.
4. From Gorgeous Grape cardstock, use the third from the largest square Stylish Shapes Die to die-cut out and use your Stamparatus to stamp the vampire trick or treater in Early Espresso ink. This will be layered on top of the Basic Black square die-cut.
First adhere the Glitter Washi Tape piece across the middle of the embossed base layer, use dimensionals to adhere the layered square die-cut over the middle of the washi tape piece, use liquid glue to adhere the die-cut moon and bats as shown, and adhere this completed piece 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 Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, use the sentiment to first ink in Real Red ink and use a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to color over the sentiment except for the Love, and stamp the vampire trick or treater in the bottom corner in Early Espresso ink with your Stamparatus:
For the coordinating Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, use your Stamparatus to stamp the vampire trick or treater in the bottom left corner:
How quick and easy was this cute little Halloween card to make? Whether it’s one or a dozen, you can easily replicate this card! You can also change things up by changing the character, the cardstock, the embossing folder, and the washi tape used in this card! You will have several cards with slight variations!
