Happy Halloween

Hi everyone, Deanna here today back with a Halloween card for you today.  Now you may be wondering what would you do with a Halloween card if you don't normally send Halloween card..  These cards make great birthday cards for someone with a birthday near Halloween.  You can send it as a thank you card, or to a friend to let them know you are thinking of them and to cheer them up.

Here is what I came up with for you today.

I started my card by die cutting a tag from the Poppy Stamps Main Street Tags die set.  Next I grabbed a Tim Holtz stencil in the shape of a spider web and using Hickory Smoke distress ink and a round blending tool, stenciled my spiderweb onto the tag. I used my Crop-i-dile to punch a whole in the top of my tag and added some ribbon to the tag.


Once I had the tag done, I put together my card base.  I started with a dark gray card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a light gray mat and then a patterned paper mat.

Next I die cut my Halloween wreath our of brown card stock and the Happy Halloween sentiment out of orange card stock using the Cheery Lynn Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath die.
