Hello everyone! I’m so glad you’re here! Today I have a couple of fun and super quick to create cards featuring the new Halloween Meows and Halloween Woofs paper pads from the Newton’s Nook release last week.
I fell in love with some of these patterns but couldn’t figure out a way to use the larger patterns without covering up more than I liked. These simple designs were the perfect way to showcase those papers!
Aren’t these papers just so perfect! I love the colors and the critters are perfect compliments for the patterns in the pads too!
This first card features the Halloween Meows paper pad. I cut a piece of the kitty paper measuring 4.25×4 inches and adhered it to a white card base. Then I added the orange strip measuring 4.25×1.5 inches. I cut a 1/4 inch strip of black cardstock and popped it up with foam strips on the seam.
Finally, I used circles from the Circle Frames and Frames Squared die sets to create my sentiment medallion. The sentiment from Halloween Pile is stamps and heat embossed and the circles are added to the card front with foam squares on either side of the black strip so it lays nicely.
Switching gears to the adorable Halloween Woofs paper pad. I cut two pieces of paper from the pad – the puppies are 5.5×2 inches and the stripes are 5.5×2.25 inches. I added a 1/4 inch strip of black cardstock to hide the seam again, this time with liquid glue.
This time, I went digging for sentiments to make my card a little more individual. The green sentiment is cut with a banner trio die and comes from Heartfelt Woofs. I used a copic marker to color the open letters a darker green to help them stand out a bit. Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Batty Newton and die cut it with a banner from the A7 Frames & Banners die set. Both banners are added with foam squares.
Aren’t these cards so much fun!?! No coloring required but look at all that visual interest from the patterned paper and fun design elements.
