Everything Festive, Halloween Card, September 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

I got my Paper Pumpkin in the mail yesterday and I had too many things going on to sit down and play with it.  But today I had some free time and I sat down and looked through the box.  I was not sure what I was going to do with it since I did not have any use for the treat boxes.  So as I took the images off the die cut sheets, I was trying to think of what I was going to make and this is what I came up with today.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Pumpkin Pie card stock.  This fold is on the left and the card opens on the right.

I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White and one of the skull spider web dies and placed it on top and sponged black Memento ink on it, using it like a stencil.  By the time I was done I had a solid black skull web that I will probably use on another card sometime soon. After I was done with the sponging, I taped the piece to the card base.

I took one of the black tags and taped it to a stitched rectangle piece that I cut from one of the polka dot boxes.  I cut two, one for each corner of the card.  I taped the tag to the polka dot piece and then I taped them to the two corners of the card. 

The words are from the "Everything Festive" set. I first stamped them using the Gorgeous Grape ink that came with the kit but I ended up stamping over it using black Memento ink.  It's got a little purply look to it.  I die cut the words using the stitched oval die.  And I die cut a scalloped oval using a piece of the polka dot treat box.  I taped the two pieces together.  

I took the hand dies and I cut a line between the thumb and first finger.  Doing this allowed the thumb to slip behind the oval better.  I wanted it to look like the hand are holding the oval. I taped the hands in place and I made sure when I was adding the Dimensionals that I had them touching the thumb and part of the hand to help hold those in place.  I set the oval in place on top of the card.  I added the skeletons using the black Dimensionals that came with the kit.  And for a final touch, I added some sequins. I didn't have any orange ones, so I took the gold ones that were left over from last month and I used the dark Cajun Craze Blends pen and colored them before I set them in place.  

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and the card was done.  I am SO loving the background.  It didn't take all that long to do, plus it was looking so cool as I was doing it and that helped make it go faster too.  I may do another one, I think I need more than one black skull web.  I have an idea brewing!!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Please share your second card you have brewing! For that matter any card you'd like to share we'd love to see. I love this card! Such an fun idea. I added to it, in my mind, Not that it needed anything. But, what I thought of for the inside, was stamp and fussy cut a few spiders. Using SU! Silver Metallic Thread adhere to the back of each spider. So when they open the card, they get a small handful of spiders. I truly love your card enough I'm going to try and make one. That really is a clever idea about the hands! Spot on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
