It’s the last days of September and that means that Halloween is fast approaching. I love Halloween and Stampin’ Up! has some fabulous Halloween products in the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog (A.K.A. Holiday Catalog). For this fun card I used the Countryside Corners dies to create a card base and used the Bag of Bones bundle, the Them Bones Designer Series Paper, Glow-in-the-Dark Specialty Paper, and the Winter Owls dies. I heat embossed the spooky Bag of Bones stamp set images in black embossing powered on the Glow-in-the-Dark Specialty Paper.
You can watch the Facebook Live replay of this project on my Facebook page below.
Start with a Starry Sky cardstock card base. Die cut the card base with the largest Countryside Corners dies to create the card base fun shape (be sure that the top cutting edge of the die is above the card base seam). Cut the Them Bones Designer Series Paper panel from the sheet with multiple printed card front pieces. Die cut out the Them Bones Designer Series Paper front panel with the largest Countryside Corners dies (save the remaining of the panel for the inside & back of the card). Glue the die cut Designer Series Paper to the card front, aligning the bottom edge first, and then use paper snips to trim the excess off the top.
Die cut Basic Black cardstock branches with Winter Owls dies. Use glue to add the branches to form a tree on the left side of the card front. Use paper snips to cut off any access branches so they are flush with the card base.
Heat emboss the skeleton, dog, cat, & sentiment from the Bag of Bones stamp set by applying the Embossing Buddy, stamping images in VersaMark, adding the back embossing powder, melt the powder with the Heat Tool on the Glow-in-the-Dark Specialty Paper. After completely cooled, die cut out the embossed images with Bag of Bones dies. Use the paper trimmer to cut out the sentiment (1″ x 2 1/8″). Die cut out three Them Bones Designer Series Paper bow ties and use glue to add the bow ties to the die cut embossed Skeleton, dog, and cat.
Use black Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sentiment panel to the card front (using the skeleton as a guide). Use black Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the skeleton and dog to the card front on either side of the sentiment on the card front. Die cut a Glow in-the-Dark Specialty Paper bone with the Bag of Bones dies. Use a glue dot to add it tucked under the dog’s mouth.
Die cut a Basic White cardstock inside panel with the second largest Countryside Corners dies. Stamp the sentiment from the Bags of Bones stamp set in Memento Black ink on the inside panel. Trim down the leftover Designer Series Paper edge and use glue to add the edge piece to the right side of the inside panel.
Add a die cut and embossed Glow-in-the-Dark cat to the inside panel overlapping the Designer Series Paper to pull the theme through. Also stamp the sentiment & cat from the Bag of Bones stamp set in Memento Black ink, and cut & glue a strip of leftover Designer Series Paper to the back of the card to pull the theme through.
