Black and Orange

Happy Saturday everyone!  What a fun theme we have for you this week on the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop.  With Halloween right around the corner…we have a fun challenge – Black and Orange.  Well…I did use the Halloween paper!  LOL!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Spooky Nights dsp (orange/black circle print) – 2 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Basic Black – 4 3/4 x 4 1/4, cut along bottom using the Swirly Snowflake thinlet and add to card front
  • Spooky Nights (striped) – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Very Vanilla – cut out the two leaves/stems and squiggly thing
  • Copper Foil – cut out pumpkin
  • Very Vanilla – stamp large pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie/Black stem, medium pumpkin in Cajun Craze/Black stem, small pumpkin in Peek-a-boo Peach/Black stem, cut out with matching framelits
  • Layer all these and add to card front
  • Very Vanilla – 3/8 x 1 5/8, stamp greeting using Basic Black, cut into banner and add to card front

How fun is that!  I just LOVE using the that lacy edge from the Swirly Snowflake for a cool look!   There’s still time…the new Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Edition is now open!
