If You Give A Crafter A Cookie Challenge - No. 105 - Halloween With All Dressed Up



Hello everyone.  I wanted to share with you guys a card I made for the current challenge over on the If You Give A Crafter A Cookie Challenge Blog.  This is Challenge No. 105 and the inspiration photo for the challenge is - 


I wanted to make a Halloween card but not a typical card with typical colors or images.  I found this great image called "Have A Magical Evening" from a store on Etsy called All Dressed Up.

I started by printing the image at 60% on white cardstock, I cut it using the 2nd largest die from A2 Matting Basics A (S5-131/Spellbinders).  Then I colored it using Ultra Fine Tipped BIC Markers.




I made an A2 card base of white cardstock and adhered a piece of black cardstock to the front.  Using the largest die from A2 Matting Basics B (S5-132/Spellbinders), I cut a piece of apricot colored cardstock.  


I adhered the apricot cardstock to the card front and then the piece with the image to the apricot.


I showed this to my friend Debra and she gave me a great idea.  Paper piece the moon and her socks.  So I went through my stash, cut some small pieces and then and printed the digi again so that it printed on the pieces.  


And adhered them on the card front.  I like it better now!!!  Thanks Debra!! 


And here is the final card fully finished.  The inside says "Happy Halloween".


I hope you enjoyed this quick card. If you want to enter a card in the challenge, you have until October 31st to do so.  I hope you will!!  

Until next time - 

Hugs from Brasil,

Michael
