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

When I saw this card on Pinterest I knew I just had to make one. What caught my eye was the coloring of the adorable "Cute Halloween" Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the 6" x 6" stack. There was no way I was not going to make one of these cards. I had it in my cue to make and today happened to be the day I had time to make it. You can see the original card here.  But it just didn't end there. The inside of the card was just too darn cute too. I usually don't do anything with the insides of my cards but this one just begged me to include it all.  So I did and here's how it was made.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. After it was cut it measured 11" x 4-1/4".  I scored it at 5-1/2" and folded it. So now the card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

The front panel was cut off at 1-3/4".  The front panel measured 2-1/2".  I cut a piece of the DSP that had the candies on it and they were colored with my Blends pens. You can use markers too. I used Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Bronze, Granny Apple Green and Pumpkin Pie.  I taped it to the front panel.

Then I stamped and punched out 6 pumpkins. Five of them were taped to the front of the card on the upper edge.

The words are from the "Cutest Halloween" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a piece of Old Olive card stock. I didn't have the same die cut that was used on the original card but I had one that fit from the "Ornate Frames" die set. I set the words in place using two Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card I cut the houses image sheet from the DSP pack to measure 4" x 5-1/4" and I taped it in place. 

A 5" x 2" piece of Basic White card stock was cut and then stamped with the words from the "Cutest Halloween" set using black Memento ink. A little spider was stamped in the upper right corner using black Memento ink.

On the inside flap a 2-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP from the same "Cute Halloween" 6' x 6" stack was taped in place. Then the 6th pumpkin was taped in place.

A ghost was stamped using Smoky Slate ink on a piece of Basic White card stock. I stamped the face image using Fresh Freesia ink and then it was punched out too. I shut the card and set the ghost in place using a couple of Dimensionals.  And this adorable card was done.  So cute, isn't it? Can you see why I just had to make it?

Thank you SO very much for taking our time to see today's Halloween card,
