Monster Bash, Detailed Bands, To Every Season, 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I'm not sure how many Halloween cards I'm going to be making. I don't have much of a use for a bunch of them. I will make a few more and then move onto something else.  This card I had found on the internet.  You can see the original card here.  I did change it a little.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. I cut the card stock in half on the 8-1/2" side.  This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White piece to the inside. I did that right away so I wouldn't forget.  It should really be a Very Vanilla piece.  But it's on there now and I'm not removing it.

I cut a 4" x 4" piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Monster Bash" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I taped that piece to the upper part of the card base.

I took a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock and textured it using the "Stylish Scroll" embossing folder.  That piece measures 4" x 2-1/2".  I taped it to the lower part of the card. It did cover up some of the DSP and you can adjust the size of your DSP to 2-1/2" x 4" if you like.  If you are makingre than one card you can save on DSP by cutting the piece this size.  I took a piece of black ribbon and tied it around the card. I did add a couple of glue dots to hold it down near the knot.

I did not have the new die cuts that look like a to of fun but I did use the ones I had on hand.  They are from the "Detailed Bands" set.  It did the job. It's not as lacy looking but it's okay.  I had to die cut one using Basic Black card stock and one using Whisper White (which should have been Very Vanilla).  For the second one you don't need to die cut the whole piece, just the center.  I was able to use a scrap piece to do this.  I set the piece in my Stamparatus and I stamped the  "Happy Halloween" from the "To Every Season" set.  I added some enamel pieces from the "Monster Bash" enamel shapes pack.  I trimmed the sides of the word strip and the card was done. 

I did put some glue down on a piece of plastic and I folded the plastic and pressed it to get the glue to be thin so I could press the card stock piece into it and get just enough glue on it to hold it in place.  I added a little glue to the side pieces so I was reassured the piece was glued down.

The were taped to the inside.  Do yours in Very Vanilla!

This was a fun card to make and I love knowing that I can copy a card I like and use the things I have here.  Be happy with what you have, right? 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
