I wanted to come on today to share a couple of quick and easy Halloween cards that I made for my design team project for Inloveartshop using the Alphabet Letter Dies and the Halloween Words Stamp Set. My readers can get 15% off at Inloveartshop by using the coupon code: FSCraftyPaws at checkout.
The BOO card is one that could easily be modified for any holiday or occasion just swapping out the patterned paper and using different words to repeat at the top 1/3 of the card. I die cut the letters “B” and “O” a bunch from the die set so that I could repeat “BOO”, including adding some differences in depth for alternating single and double layered BOOs. I wanted it to have a sophisticated look so I used premium extra thick black card stock matching my card base. For the lower 2/3 of the card, I used a scrap of Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Collection. I also used a little scrap of orange card stock to add a finishing edge between the patterned paper and the die cut Boos.
The Halloween Word Background card was also done on black cardstock but this time I wanted more contrast, so rather than using black embossing powder, I used Ranger Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder with VersaMark Ink to stamp out and heat emboss all but one of the stamps from the Halloween Word Stamp Set. I then cut down the card front with an oldie but a goodie – my Fiskars Deckle patterned paper edger scissors! I trimmed the edges of both sides of the card front with more of the left over Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Collection paper, and then cut the whole thing down to fit a standard card base. Then I took a silhouetted witch flying in front of a moon flanked by two bats and popped that ephemera piece on foam dots to add a little dimension. For the inside of the card, I used my Deckle scissors again and cut down a black card liner and a trimmed down sentiment that read, “Greetings for Halloween”.
