Among the Branches

CreateFA15HopWelcome

Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Design Team Blog Hop.  The last two weeks the team has done Halloween cards and this week we each have a little Halloween Treat for you!  Fun, Fun, Fun!

HalloweenTreat2I have not used the Square Pillow Box Thinlit yet so when I knew this week was going to be a small Halloween Treat, I knew right away I would use that!  I also had not used my Among the Branches set much yet so I put those two things together for my treat for you!

Here’s the details…

  • Blackberry Bliss – cut out two of the Square Pillow Box thinlit, run through the Woodland embossing folder.
  • Next stamp the eyes using versamark and gold emboss.  Put box together
  • Wrap a piece of the absolutely YUMMY Very Vanilla 1 1/4 Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon, to using Gold 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, trim ends.
  • Stamp Spooky circle image on Very Vanilla using Tangelo Twist, color in eyes using Basic Black Marker, cut out using Circle Framelit.
  • Gold Foil – punch out 2″ circle, layer under the spooky circle leaving more gold showing at the gop.
  • Black Glimmer – punch out 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle, layer spooky in this than add to pillow box using dimensionals.
