I am getting a jump start on making all the Holiday cards (Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas). The Challenge for me is not making the cards, it is remembering that I have made them and to actually get them mailed! I still have several Christmas cards from last year that I never did mail….so I don’t need to make as many this year…just MAIL THEM!!!
So here are a few of the Halloween cards that I have completed.
This card was made using the Cricut Cartridge Happy Hauntings and the paper is Paper Layerz by Megan Elizabeth over at Above Rubies Studio. (if you have not heard of her or seen her work, you really should check it out!)
This is a simple card using scraps of Halloween paper that I had in my stash. I crumbled the paper and used Chestnut Roan fluid chalk ink to distress the paper, then just glued it all down… the paper is crooked on purpose!
For this last card, I used Close To My Heart which stamp from the Wicked set. I love this stamp set! I used black embossing powder on the witch to make her stand out a little. I curled the edges of the “frame” paper to give it more dimension.
I hope you enjoyed the cards! I will start keeping better track of what products I use and what cut sizes are so that I will be able to give you the recipes to each card!
My next project is school themed cards. Our oldest son just got his school pictures back and they are just SO super CUTE! I am going to send them out to friends and family in the school themed cards… just as soon as I find time to get those done!
Have a super great day
