Spooky Halloween Cards
Halloween is just around the corner, so it’s a good idea to create some cards for Halloween Party or just to have a few on hand to give to friends on this day.
I like when my cards don’t look too dramatically dark, and though Halloween is all about the black and orange colors, I decided to add some festive accents to my projects using gold and champagne glittered cardstock.
For my first card I used the Spooky Tree die and I cut it out from champagne glitter cardstock and hid it by the Tree’ n Web piece cut out of black. I wanted to create a kind of landscape for my background.
I also die-cut out one more Spooky Tree from the same glitter cardstock and foam mounted it on the top of it.
I’ve added grey ribbon and a bow on the edge and placed my sentiment – Spooky. Since I used black cardstock for the sentiment and I didn’t want the “S” to be hidden on the black tree, I cut out one more Spooky word from the gold cardstock, and used only one “S”.
I also die-cut bats from gold cardstock and placed in between the tree branches. To help bat die cuts stand out I cut 2 more pieces out of black cardstock and layered the gold die cut on top offsetting slightly as if to create a black frame around it.
For my second card I also die-cut the cat from the Kitty Cats set, that I topped on a piece of gold glitter cardstock.
So it was quite easy to keep the black and orange colors and all the elements together.
Thanks for joining me today! Have fun with your dies!
