If You Give A Crafter A Cookie Challenge - No. 105 - Halloween Card With Vera Lane Studio



Hello everyone and Happy Friday!!  I wanted to make a quick post to show you guys another Halloween card that I made for the If You Give A Crafter A Cookie Challenge Blog - Challenge No. 105.  This is the 2nd card I made for this challenge because I love (and miss) Halloween.  The first card was yesterday and you can check that card out {HERE}.  

For today's card I used two digital items.  The first was a digital image from Vera Lane Studio on Etsy.  I love her images...quirky and fun.  The image I used is called October and it comes with the girl holding the pumpkin and two phrases. 

I started by printing out the image two times, coloring them with BIC Markers....one of them fully colored and just the pumpkin on the other.  I fussy cut her out and then I fussy cut just the pumpkin.  I then went back and added some Firefly Stickles (Ranger) to her eyebrows and some Orange Peel Stickles (Ranger) to her dress and her socks. 

While that was drying....

I printed out two of the designs in the Frightful paper pack by Design by Dani (SnapClickSupply).  One was a sheet filled with jack-o-lantern faces and the other had a graphic design with a small spider coming down from the upper left corner.  I made a top folding A2 card base of white cardstock and adhered the jack-o-lantern piece to the card front. 

Using a stitched rectangle die, I die cut the paper with the spider so that the spider was in the upper corner.  I then used the next sized die up and cut a piece of black cardstock.  I adhered the spider piece to the black cardstock and then this to the card front. 

Lastly, I adhered the October girl to the card front under the spider, then I adhered the pumpkin with pop dots.  I went back to the Frightful paper pack and printed out a sheet with lots of Halloween words, cut one of them out, layered it on black cardstock, and adhered this to the card front. 

Done!! 

After reading the above it does seem like a lot to do but it's really not.  Sorry for no photos with the steps but I forgot to take them.  Me bad!!! 

Anyway, I hope you like the card.  You have until October 31st to enter a card in the challenge if you choose to.  As always, until next time -
