Bag of Bones, Halloween Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun Halloween card to share with you. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. I cut two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Basic White card stock, one is for the outside and one is for the inside. I taped the one on the inside in place. 

I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Them Bones" 12" x 12" package. I measured 3" down on the right side and made a little mark with my fingernail. I cut into the piece about 2-3/4". Then I set the piece on my scoring board and scored 1" from the edge to where the piece is cut on the inside of the piece. What I do is set my piece on the scoring board. I put my stylus on the cut mark on the inside of the piece. Then I score from there to 1". I will mark my piece at 1" on either side of the cut mark on the right edge, it makes it easier to score. If you don't have a scoring board you can always mark it at 1" and then fold it by hand. I taped those flaps down and then I taped the piece on top of the Basic White piece.

Two circles were die cut, one in Basic White and one in Basic Black card stock. I used the 1-3/8" for the Basic White piece and 1-5/8" for the Basic Black piece. I taped the two pieces together and set it on top of the card so I could see where the words would go. 

The words are from the "Bag of Bones" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. 

Next I taped the circle in place. The cat is from the "Bag of Bones" bundle and was die cut using Basic Black card stock. I set it in place using a couple of small Dimensionals. And the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I like cutting the DSP like that. I don't know the name of the technique but it's fun, quick and easy.

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