Here is the Mood Board that is a part of the challenge and what has inspired my projects today!
For my card, I am showcasing products available at the shop. The card that I created below is very simple and anyone can re-create it. I know that some of you are just beginners, and don’t really have a lot of supplies. I wanted to show you that you could create a beautiful card even with just using a patterned paper, and some die-cuts.
I started out by die-cutting my cute little witch using the Witch with Cat Die by Gina Marie Designs. I also die-cut the Stitched Heart Tag Die and the Cross-Stitched Rectangle Dies for my card front. I fuzzy-cut the tombstones and the Happy Halloween sentiment strip from the BOOtiful Night 6×6 Paper Pad by American Crafts.
I wanted a small shaker element on my card, without making it look too busy. I used black fun-foam (instead of a foam adhesive) and run it through my Xyron Creative Station Lite with a Double Permanent Adhesive to create a sticker. This will ensure that both sides of the fun foam will have edge-to-edge adhesive and your shaker elements will be completely secure! I used some of my favorite Halloween sequin mixes, i.e. the Spooky Sparkles Sequin Mix and the Autumn Harvest sequin mix. I adhered the tag on my card base.
To finish the design, I die-cut a stitched hill die from my stash, then adhered it onto the card front, with my cute little witch and the tombstones. I stamped the spider web and the little spider using a stamp from Newton’s Nook Designs, and added some white dots with my Uni-ball Impact Bold Point White Gel Pen.
Here is the finished card and I hope you like it.
