Halloween Bash


This is my second post of the day so make sure you scroll down and see my other card too!  This is a card I demoed at a workshop in September (hi Becky!)  And I thought I’d save it for today!

Before I give the details for making this card, I am not going to show how to do the ‘rays’.  Instead…here is where I learned how to do them and she did a GREAT tutorial!

  • Pumpkin Pie:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Basic Black:  4 7/8 x 3 5/8
  • Very Vanilla:  4 3/4 x 3 1/2, layer on Basic Black
  • Make the ‘ray’s from Witch’s Brew dsp using the sizes and directions given above.  Add to Very Vanilla piece.
  • Wrap Basic Black Chevron Ribbon around panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla:  1 7/8 x 2 5/8.  Stamp using Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Summer Starfruit maker.  Layer onto Basic Black 2 x 2 3/4.  Layer onto Summer Starfruit, 2 1/4 x 3.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Make bats using Basic Black cardstock Elegant Butterfly with 3/4″ Circle Punch and Bitty Butterfly with 1/2″ Circle Punch.  Add to card front and add Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
