Today's make is a Halloween Card...

You may remember I was on the DT at Sketch~N~Scrap for a couple of terms
some while ago...



Well, here I am doing a Friday Flashback, celebrating World Card Making MONTH!!


Why not have a go and link up your make?

This is the sketch:






and here is my card...





I think you can recognise the sketch - the squares have become pumpkins!!.

For this card I scored and folded white card to make the base - when I do this I always like to start with an envelope and make it to fit - then there's no problem finding a suitable envelope afterwards!! And the green one is Halloween-y!!

I matted my base with black card and then a handmade background...




I used white card to mop up spritzed 'rusty hinge' distress ink and distressed my trimmed rectangle with the same ink. I then stamped it with black Stazon using Crafter's Companion Splats and Stains rubber stamps.
You probably recognise this as I have used the same technique several times this month...




Next I added a strip of DP from my stash saying Happy Halloween -
 sorry I am not sure of the origin of this paper.

And then three pumpkins - printed and fussy cut.
These come from Imagine That Digistamps Scarecrow


Hope to see your makes at SNS

Happy Hopping!

  1. I wish stamp companies would make sentiment stamps
    than run vertical. So often I have a long area
    on the side of my card but can't put a sentiment
    there because the stamp runs horizontally.
    Love the pumpkins.
