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

Once again, with only a few more days left till Halloween, I thought I'd squeeze another card in before the items retire.  No one really wants to see Halloween cards in November. I think it's then time to move along to other fall cards, Thanksgiving cards and even Christmas cards. So I thought I'd use my Halloween sets a few more days to get some extra use out of them before they are set aside for ever because I know next year I'll be buying new ones!!!

I found today's card on Pinterest. I loved how it looked. I loved the background and of course I got to use the spiderweb die again. I LOVE that die. I made a few minor changes. You can see the original card here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. It was cut on the short side of the full sheet. It measured 4-1/4" x 11" after cutting.  I folded it in half on the long side. This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.

I cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 3-1/4" x 5-1/2".  Then I cut a piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Cute Halloween" 6" x 6" stack to measure 3" x 5-1/2".  I taped the DSP to the Basic White piece and then I taped that to the front of the card.

Then I die cut the spider web using Basic Black card stock and colored it with Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle.

A 3-1/4" x 1-1/4" strip of Basic Black card stock was cut and colored with Wink of Stella. I set it aside to dry while I stamped the words from the "Frightfully Cute" set using black Memento ink on Basic White card stock. I die cut them with the circle die from the "Frightful Tags" die set. The circle measures 1-3/8" so if you have other round dies you could find one close to that size. 

The pumpkin was punched out from one of the pumpkins in the same DSP package. I have a sheet of the DSP that I keep punching characters from. 

I added some tape to the back of the Basic Black strip and set the spider web on it to hold it in place. Then I added tape to the entire strip and set it in place on the front of the card. The bottom of that strip is about 2" up from the bottom of the card. My spider web is not attached at the top, just what is under the strip. 

The words were taped in place next and then the pumpkin was added using Dimensionals.

I tied a black gingham bow and used a couple of small glue dots to hold it in place.

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.

I thought it was such a cute and easy card to make. I really like the layout. I am hoping to use it for an upcoming Christmas card in the near future.  

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