Banner Year, kid Friendly Halloween Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I found today's sweet little cared on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. I was drawn to this card because it used the "Banner Year" set. I'm sure this set will be retiring in 2022 because it's been around for almost 2 years now. Which is sad and what else is sad is that I haven't used it as much as I thought I would. 

The original card link doesn't lead to any instructions, so here's how I made the card.

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

I cut a 3" x 4" piece of Basic White card stock and I stamped the images from the "Banner Year" set using Basic Back for the bat and the pumpkin's face, Pumpkin Pie for the pumpkin and Highland Heather for the spiderweb.

Then I cut a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Highland Heather card stock for the layer.  I taped the two pieces together and then I taped that to the front of the card. 

The words are from the "Banner Year" set too and were stamped on a scrap piece of Highland Heather using black Memento ink.  That piece measures 1/2" x 3" and the ends were snipped to look like ribbon ends. I had used what was left from trimming my Highland Heather piece for the layer. Actually I stamped first and then I cut.  I set that strip in place using Dimensionals.  

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock was added to the inside of the card and the card was done.

This was a very fun and quick card to make. If I were to make another one, I'd take a full sheet of Basic White and fill it with these characters and cut it to make 6 cards!  Such a deal.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Halloween Card,
