Bag of Bones, Halloween Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun, quick, and easy card I found on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. The link is a quick tutorial on how the card was made. No measurements, no voice, just a fast video. Please read on to see how I made the card.

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

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Them Bones" 12" x 12" package. I taped it to the front of the card base. I also cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and taped it to the inside. I don't usually stamp on the inside of my cards but in the video they show you what they did. It's cute but like I said, I don't usually stamp on the inside.

The two skeletons were die cut from another piece of DSP in the same package, using the dies from the "Bag of Bones" bundle. They were glued in place on top of the DSP.

The words are from the "Bag of Bones" set and were stamped using Versa Mark. They were heat embossed using white embossing powder. They were die cut using the 1-3/8" die from the "Layering Circles" set. It was then set in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

I had die cut a few extra bats using Basic Black card stock. I set them in place with a little dot of glue. And the card was done.

This was such a quick and fun card to make. I think the skeletons should have been popped up with Dimensionals. It would have given them more depth. 

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