Not too spooky

Happy Halloween!  Kristina H. here today to share a not so spooky halloween card.


This card looks like a lot of work but it really is pretty easy to recreate.  The main die I used for this card is Spooky Pumpkin by Die-Versions.  

I first cut the die with an orange piece of cardstock.  I then strategically placed the different pieces of cardstock on the die and ran it through my die cut machine.  I did it with the polka dot paper (Lawn Fawn), the silver glitter paper, orange patterned paper (Doodlebug) and the green paper (Doodlebug).  I then used a fine tip pair of scissors and a craft knife to cut out the pieces that I needed.  

I used the Zig 2-way Glue Pen and adhered all of the layers onto my base piece cut from the orange cardstock.  I had a scrap piece of black cardstock that I added a little shimmer to it and put it behind the pumpkin.  I needed this to look like one cohesive unit so I went back and cut another whole piece out of white cardstock.  I carefully trimmed out everything on the inside so I just had the pumpkin outline and glued it in place.

While the pumpkin die was drying, I turned my attention to the cardbase.  I started with a 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" white cardbase.  I found a couple different halloween papers in my stash.  The black cobweb piece is cut to 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".  The purple bat piece was first cut out using the largest die from Tutti Designs Stitched Nesting Circles set.  I highly recommend this set because you will use it a lot!  I'm currently trying to collect several of the other stitched die sets by Tutti Designs.  There are TONS in the store.  Check them out HERE.

Next I sponged Dusty Concord Distress Oxide ink all around the edges of the circle.  I backed it with foam tape and adhered it to the black paper.  Then I added the pumpkin die cut.  Again I used the Zig 2-Way glue (love this stuff!)  

As my final touch I used a sentiment from Lawn Fawn Pick of the Patch.  I prepped the black paper with anti-static powder, stamped it with Versamark ink and applied silver embossing powder.  I heated it up until the powder melted.  I trimmed the pieces down and hand cut the banner edge on the right side.  These were then adhered on top of the pumpkin with foam tape.  Ta da!!
