The big day is here so of course I have to share one last Halloween card for the season. I have once again used the Trick or Tweet stamp set (because it has so many cute stamps!).
I created this card for my best friend. She loves Elephants and she loves Halloween just as much as me. After 37 years of friendship I am still batty for her so it is the perfect card to give her!
I made this card using a 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic Black card base. I then cut the bat paper from the Toil & Trouble DSP to 3 3/4 x 5 inches. I also cut another layer of Smoky Slate paper to put behind the bat paper.I thought should help to make the DSP pop on the card. This layer is just 1/8 inch larger around than the DSP. I stamped my cute elephant using Black Memento ink and then used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut him out. I added a Basic Black layer with the same framelits. I used my Light Basic Black and Light Smoky Slate Blends markers to color in the elephant. I stamped the Batty for You Sentiment in memento ink and used my Classic Label punch to punch it out. I didn’t want the sentiment to blend into the paper so I cut out circles with my Layering Circles Framelits. I even used the Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add some texture to the circle behind the sentiment. To finish things off I added a bow using the 3/8 Inch Glittered Organdy Ribbon and some Black Metallic Sequins.
I hope you are getting to enjoy this spooky Halloween and get to see many cute little kids enjoying their trick or treating. I don’t have many trick or treater’s come to my house, so I will likely be enjoying a spooky movie with my husband this evening.
Come back soon as I will be busy making many more Christmas Cards now that it is time to move on to the next holiday!
