Happy Halloween everyone!!!!! I just love this holiday! I look all the spooky and fall and kiddos running around dressed up. It just makes me happy! So I wanted to share a special card with you today to celebrate.
To create this awesome card, I started with the background. I used the ghosts stencil with deco foil transfer gel blanco on black cardstock. When it was dry, I sent it through my laminator with iridescent deco foil. Then I sat and played with it for a while because those ghosts are SO COOL!!!
I stamped and colored Witchy Newton with my copic markers and also made sure to stamp a couple of bats too. I cut it all out with the coordinating dies and decided on my final layout. Using the Framework dies, I cut the scalloped rectangle from the middle of my stenciled panel. I lined the outside frame with foam tape and adhered it to a white card base. Then I inserted the rectangle in the opening and glued it directly down. I cut a second rectangle from vellum and heat embossed my sentiment from the Spooky Roundabout on it. Then I used foam squares and popped Witchy Newton and the bats up. I hid some glue behind those areas and placed the vellum rectangle in its place.
The coolest thing happened when I added the vellum to the center…it mutes the light refraction from the deco foil and makes those ghosts look stark white. I had no idea this would happen but got really excited and thought it looked soooo extra cool! What do you think?
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to Newton’s nose and hat, and dots on the boot. I didn’t want to distract from the cool background but I just love adding those little touches.
I’m linking this up to the Cat Lover’s Hop. Today is the final day, so get your projects linked up if you haven’t already.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
