When I was on vacation last week I had every intention of getting a good head start on my Christmas cards for this year. You know, rather than waiting until December 8th to start making them. But . . . somewhere between the fresh lake air and too many Mrs. Dunster's donuts, I OD'd on Halloween cards instead! Because nothing says "I'm on vacation" like a spooky Halloween scene. I was just having too much spooky fun with the new Spooky Fun stamp set and coordinating dies! It's spook-tacular! Ha ha.
*Today's Design Team card was inspired by the sketch at the Paper Craft Crew.
1. The base of the card is made from Basic Black cardstock (measuring 8 1/2" x 5 1/2")
2. The first mat layer is made from Pumpkin Pie cardstock (measuring 5 1/4 x 4")
3. The second mat layer is made from the now retired Haunted Happenings DSP (measuring 5" x 3 3/4')
4. Using my Big Shot, I machine die cut the tree and witch from Basic Black cardstock
5. Using my Big Shot, I machine die cut the fence from Very Vanilla cardstock.
6. Using Memento black ink, I stamped the trio of pumpkins on Pumpkin Pie cardstock, then die cut them using the coordinating framelit
7. Using Memento black ink, I stamped the moon on Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy cut (hand-cut) it out
8. Using Memento black ink, I stamped the "Happy Halloween" sentiment on a strip of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and notched the left end
9. I adhered the whole scene together using both Snail Permanent Adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals (aka "pop dots)
