I am so excited to share this card with you for a few reasons. The first being that there are some great new products available in the new Holiday Mini catalog, second, this is my first Halloween card of the season, and I LOVE Halloween, and third, because I feel that I got a bit of my lost mojo back when I was making this card.
Look at this cute little tag! This is part of the Ghoulish Googlies designer kit, which can come in a bundle with stamps!! Can you believe it?? When you order the bundle you get 15% off, you gotta love savings, I know I do.
I partook in the bundle savings, and got the clear mount bundle (129853) which includes the above tags, bags, googly eyes, pumpkin pie bakers twine and the Googly Ghouls stamp set. I love it!
I stamped both the little bat and the BOOOOOO in versamark then heat embossed with black embossing powder. I love a little shine. I used the new finishing touches edgelits to make a spooky flag. You don't have to be perfect for Halloween cards, a bit off, is perfect!
The black mat behind the bat tag was made using the new delicate doilies sizzlits. It has a slightly torn edge look that fit just perfectly behind my bat.
Since most Halloween cards are fun and quirky, I thought that I would tie my ribbon in knots, why just lay it flat? Quirkiness fits perfect here! I really loved how it turned out. You can also see my quirky sewing, and that was not on purpose, my machine was acting up on me, but I think it will work out great on this card.
So back to the best thing of all about this card, is this fun,and quirky new Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP. Look at the fabulous prints, colors, and textures that are included in the pack of paper. I love it, it is one of my favorite Halloween papers.
This is a 5x5 card that will fit in a square envelope, and should mail pretty easily. I might have to make more of them, I just love it.
Thank you for stopping by, please drop me a line and let me know what you think. I really do enjoy reading all of your comments. I hope I inspired you today to get out your Halloween supplies and start your own new favorite card, enjoy!
