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

Only a few more days till Halloween and only a few more days to use the Halloween stamp sets I bought. the sad thing about these sets is, it's rare they ever show up in the next catalog. So you pretty much have to use them now. SO here's today's card. I found it here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Old Olive card stock.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Cute Halloween" 6" x 6" stack. I sponged the edges with Old Olive ink. I used my blending brush to do that.

Then I cut a 3/4" strip of the DSP with the boos all over it. I taped it to a 7/8" x 4" piece of Basic White card stock. I added Dimensionals to the strip and set it aside.

The ghost was punched out and the skull was fussy cut from the DSP in the package. I added Dimensionals to the back of each of them and set them aside.

Black gingham ribbon was used for the bow and a piece of white Baker's Twine was tied around the ribbon to form a bow. The twine was then tied in a bow. I used glued dots to affix it to the boo strip.

The words are from the "Frightfully Cute" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I used the die from the "Frightful Tags" set to cut them out. I also cut two Old Olive pieces for the layers. The more I look at the card, the more I think Basic Black would have been better for the layers.  What do you think? I cut the die cut piece a little more than half, it cut it just four dots beyond center on both pieces. Then I taped them to the back of the word piece. I added Dimensionals in the center area and set it aside.

The strip was set in place about 1-7/8" from the top of the card. Then the word piece was added. The two characters were then set in place. A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock was added to the inside and the card was done.

This is a very fun and easy card to make. Another kid friendly Halloween card.

Thank you SO very much for stopping in to see today's Halloween card,
