Today’s card is a simple, but cute Halloween card. I recently won this fun Seasonal Chums Bundle from the *best* upline ever Amy. We have a great, great team and if you’d like more information on what joining looks like, click here.
My card today starts with Old Olive cardstock. I then took one panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut a circle out of it using the Layering Circles Framelits.
Now to get the circles cut out of the Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive cardstock so it aligned perfectly, I had to be a bit creative. I put the Very Vanilla first over the Pumpkin Pie cardstock after having aligned them up – not adhering them yet. I took a pencil and marked in four spots where the circle would be and then took the Pumpkin Pie cardstock, lined up the framelit, and cut out the circle. I did the same thing to the Old Olive cardstock. I adhered a piece of Vellum paper between the Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then adhered everything together.
I cut out a strip from one of the patterns in the Spooky Nights DSP for my first layer. Next I stamped the pumpkin in Archival Black ink on Shimmery White cardstock. I colored it in using a Blender Pen and Pumpkin Pie (pumpkin), Daffodil Delight (jack-o-lantern part), Old Olive (leaves), and Crumb Cake (stem) inks. I cut it out and a few leaves from Old Olive cardstock using the Seasonal Tags framelits. I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock in Old Olive ink and decorated the leaves around it.
My whole purpose, really, in cutting out the circles from the framelits was to be able to have a cute detail on the inside of my card. I added a strip of the same pattern from the Spooky Nights DSP and the back stamped and colored in version of the pumpkin.
My card was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.
