Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and “spooky” graveyard Halloween card! Not only is this a quick and easy card to make, but another fun way to use the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes! I thought the trees from the Snow Front stamp set would be perfect to help create that spooky feeling for this graveyard card!
You will start with a 3” x 5 ¼” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamping the trees and ground cover stamps in Memento ink. I used my Stamparatus for the trees so that I could stamp them a couple of times to get a solid stamped image. I used the star stamp from Little Twinkle in Versamark ink and heat set with Clear Emboss Powder:
Using sponge daubers, I first colored the ground with Basic Gray ink, the lower sky in Blueberry Bushel ink, and the upper sky in Night of Navy ink. After coloring with the sponge daubers, I used a towel to remove the Night of Navy ink off the embossed stars:
To complete the card front:
1. Adhere three of the gravestone enamel shapes.
2. Stamp the sentiment in Whisper White Craft ink, use your Stamparatus in case you want to ink and stamp again for a brighter image. Use your Heat Tool to help dry the ink.
3. Cut a piece of the Mercury Glass Acetate sheet in the cracked design to 4” x 5 ¼” and scenery cardstock to the acetate sheet.
4. This completed piece is adhered to a Night of Navy cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside sentiment, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the tree and ground cover in Memento ink, and the sentiment in Night of Navy ink:
What a fun and easy Halloween card to make! It just goes to show you that you can combine different stamp sets to create a card for any occasion! The Monster Bash Enamel Shapes are a definite fun addition for your Halloween cards!!
