Happy Monday!!!! Eeeek It’s Halloween!!! Okay, not today but it sure is coming upon us fast. This is the last week of September and of course I can’t share Halloween samples with you on the day….it’s too late by then! So I’m sharing this one early!!!
Okay so if you have been following me for awhile, you probably know I’m not a huge fan of Halloween. I easily get scared and I just don’t feel like growing up it was that big of a holiday so I’m just sort of meh about it! It seems people are either SUPER in love with Halloween or in the same boat with me! Which one are you??? Let me know in the comment below!
Since I’m not a huge fan, I bought the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog and that’s it! I have created a few fun cards using that cute paper because after all I do still need a few Halloween Cards. Paper Pumpkin is my other savior because it always has goodies for the holidays. In fact, this greeting is from the September 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit! I love it and might just use it again next year! 🙂
I started off with a Whisper White card base. Then I cut the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper into 2″ x 2-5/8″ rectangles. That is 2-1/2 and then 2 more little marks past. LOL Normally, I don’t do eighths but sometimes it’s required. These rectangles were placed using with opposites patterns. You could always recreate this card using the back sides of both pieces for another fun look. It’s always fun when you have options with both sides! Next, I added some of the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the top and tied it into a knot. Have you seen this ribbon? It is stunning…bling bling!!!
For the greeting, I stamped it from the September 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit in Gorgeous Grape and punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch. Then I punched out another one in Pumpkin Pie. Cut the Pumpkin Pie one in half and add one half to the left side of the greeting peaking out as far as you wish. Then add the other half to the other side. This gives a fabulous layered look! I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture!
This card is super simple and could be used with lots of different papers and greetings! I hope you enjoyed it and have an idea for getting your Halloween cards ready to go early this year!
