Cute Halloween, Cutest Halloween, Halloween Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Mini Holiday Catalog

I have one more Halloween card in me for tomorrow.  Just in time because there's only 1 day left until Halloween.  But on the 31st I will not be making any more Halloween cards. I need to make some birthday cards for my twin sister-in-laws and some other fall cards. Plus I want to make some Thanksgiving cards and of course Christmas cards. I didn't buy many fall or Christmas sets so I will need to be creative with the supplies I have.  Wish me luck there!!!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. You can use a folded half-sheet of Granny Apple Green. I would have if I hadn't changed the direction my card was going in. So on top of my card base is a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Granny Apple Green card stock.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Cute Halloween" 6" x 6" stack. The sad part about this splotchy black piece of DSP is that the cute bat and his fellow characters are on the other side.  But I had a full sheet and what I cut off I made sure I had a whole bat to fussy cut out. 

I fussy cut the big bat, the little bat and the little pumpkin. I set them aside.

Then I took my circle dies and I cut a 1-5/8" circle about 1-1/4" down and 1-1/4" over on each side, or close to that. I just tried to make all three sides look even.

I took the 1-7/8" circle die and cut a Pumpkin Pie circle. I taped the 1-5/8" die on top of that circle and die cut it so I had a ring. I glued the ring over the opening on the black piece of DSP.

I took a 3" x 3" piece of Basic White card stock, centered it somewhat over the circle and I lightly traced the circle onto it.  I stamped the words from the "Cutest Halloween" using black Memento ink. I erased the circle and then wondered why I bothered to trace it in the first place.   I added Dimensionals around the circle on the back of the DSP piece and I affixed the word piece to it. I wanted to make sure the words were over to the side a bit so the bat could pop over it a bit.

Next I added more Dimensionals to the edges of the DSP and I used snail tape over the 3" x 3" basic white piece.  I was now ready to tape it to the Granny Apple Green piece. 

The bats and pumpkin were set in place using Dimensionals and some retired enamel dots were added. I forgot to add one to the upper left of the circle. I did add it later. It is so open there and it needed something. Had I purchased the star sequins I would have added them, but I didn't, so I used what I had.

This was a fun card to make this kid friendly card and I'm glad to be almost done making Halloween cards. I usually don't make this many. I had a great time with the sets I bought and I'm sure they will not be showing up in next years catalog. 

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