I'm sharing a set of 3 cards that were quick to put together. All of them were made in one short sitting, and I love that they're still different. All of the cards use papers from DCWV new "Spooky Time" stack... so perfect for the upcoming season :)
This card was messy and fun to create. I used the Spooky Time mat stack and the 12x12 to get the larger banner. I used some sand paper to messy up all of the edges. Every paper piece is also distressed with "Wild Honey" Distress Ink. The corners were rolled up for a little extra grunge.
I love these skulls. This paper makes for a great background as well as a focal point on your card. See what I did to his eyes? I added black sequins and a dab of silver Liquid Pearls to make his eyes creepier. The banners were just trimmed from the paper.
I really looove the texture in this card. I combined some of the Spooky Time papers with the Grunge stack (perfect for Halloween textures!). I heat embossed the 'BOO' in white. I was happily surprised that the embossing even worked, and worked so easily. I played up the messy white flecks and inked all of the edges with white chalk ink.
I hope this inspires you to get started on your Halloween crafts! October is less than 2 weeks away!
I'm also entering each of these cards to the Moxie Fab Handmade Card Challenge: Ready-made Embellishments. Each of these cards uses the pattern paper as the star!
