Best Witches, Kid Friendly Halloween Card, Split Circle Technique Stampin' Up! Fall Mini Catalog 2022

I had so much fun making this card. I was looking on Pinterest and saw a card that used the "Split Circle" technique so I thought I'd see if I could make one using a Halloween motif.  And here it is. I think the green background could use something more but other than that I like it. Maybe I'll add a few black bats, I don't know but it does need something. You can see one I made by clicking here

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock for the layer and a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Granny Apple Green Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Brights Collection 6" x 6" stack. I taped that on top of the Basic Black piece.

Next I die cut the circles using the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th largest circles in the "Stylish Shapes" set. I counted the circles being the largest one was number 1. 

I used Highland Heather DSP from the "Brights Collection" stack. Pumpkin Pie from the "Gingham Cottage" 12" x 12" stack, and Basic Black from the "Black & White Designs" 12" x 12" package. You need to cut 5 circles. The center one can be used for both the top and bottom split. You need to cut one large and one small of the Highland Heather and Basic Black ones. After you die cut them you need to cut them in half. After I die cut mine, I folded the scrap piece in half to find the center of the circle. I placed the circle back inside the piece and then marked center on the top and bottom lightly with a pencil. After they were cut I assembled the circle halves and taped them together. Put them together before you tape them or you could mess them up.  Yup, speaking from experience here!!

I die cut the second to the last circle using a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I colored it in using Gorgeous Grape ink and my Blending brush. 

The frog is from the "Best Witches" set and was stamped using black Memento ink. I fussy cut him out and colored him with both light and dark Granny Apple Green Blends pens. I set him in place on top of the Gorgeous Grape circle using a Dimensional.

The words are from my computer. I didn't have a current set with just "happy halloween" so I used my computer and I colored the words using the RGB code for the Pumpkin Pie color. I used Comic Sans MS font, bolded. I die cut the words using the ribbon ends die from the same "Stylish Shapes" set. I set the words in place using Dimensionals and the card was done. But like I said, the background needs something. Black dots. Stars. Bats.  Something.

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

The split circle technique makes a very interesting design. I made a couple a while back. It was fun to see what different looks you can get with various papers. The little frog on your Halloween one is the perfect addition.
