Best Witches, Scary Cute, Kid Friendly Halloween Card, Stampin' Up! 2022 Mini Catalog

I found today's card on Pinterest. I was ready to move on from Halloween cards but I found this cutie and thought I'd give it a try. There's not a lot of info on how it was made, so here's how I made mine. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black car stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White car stock for the inside and I taped it in place. And I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Black & White Designs" 12" x 12" package. The stars have stars on the back so I cut a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" strip for the center of the card. I did cut a strip of scrap card stock just a little bit smaller than 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" to tape behind the DSP. I needed it to be a bit more firm than it is. I took some Highland Heather ribbon that I had and I taped the ends to the back of the strip.  

The 4" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP was taped to the front of the card and then the strip was taped in place.

I stamped the witch from the "Best Witches" set using black Memento ink. I colored her in using Blends pens. I used light and dark Highland Heather, dark Daffodil Delight, dark Basic Gray, light Basic Black, Bronze, and both light and dark Petal Pink. I fussy cut her out before I colored her.

Then I cut a 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Basic White card stock and I stamped some stars on it. I didn't have the stars that were used on the original card so stamping the ones from the set did the trick. I cut a 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Highland Heather for the layer. I taped the two layers together.

The witch was set in place on top of the two layers using Dimensionals. And Dimensionals were added to the back of the layers and set in place on the front of the card. 

I added a bat using Dimensionals. Wink of Stella was added to the bat for some sparkle. I also put some on the hat buckle but it doesn't show up much.

A bow was added to the top of the card and then the words were added. They are from the same "Best Witches" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock.
