This week’s Global Design Project is a fun sketch challenge. There is still a few weeks until Halloween so I used the super cute Monster Bash DSP to make another Halloween card with a vintage feel.
Start with a Soft Suede cs card base. Cut a Basic Black cs and Very Vanilla cs panel. Dry emboss the Basic Black cs panel with the Stylish Scroll embossing folder and then glue it to the card base.
Stamp the bat image from the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set in Memento Black ink on the Very Vanilla cs panel. Use a Stamping Sponge wedge to add Soft Suede ink to the edges and lightly across the panel to give it a vintage feel and then glue it to the card base.
Cut a Basic Black cs strip, dry emboss it with the Stylish Scroll embossing folder and then glue it across the top (about an 1″ down from the top) of the stamped Very Vanilla cs panel.
Cut out the Vampire image from the Monster Bash DSP with the Layering Squares Dies. Color the vampire’s shirt with the Stampin’ Blends and add Wink of Stella to his eyes for sparkle.Use the stamping sponge wedge to add Soft Suede ink to the edges of the DSP square.
Die cut out a boarder edge from Soft Suede cs with the Delicate Lace dies. Use glue to adhere the boarder edge to the bottom of the DSP. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the DSP square to the card front centered over the embossed Basic Black cs strip.
Stamp the sentiment from the To Every Season stamp set on a piece of Very Vanilla cs scrap. Die cut it out with the Layering Circle dies. Use the stamping sponge wedge to add Soft Suede ink the circle’s edges. Die cut a Basic Black cs scalloped circle layer with the Layering Circles Dies. Glue the stamped & sponged sentiment Very Vanilla cs circle to the Basic Black cs scalloped circle. Use glue dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment circles across the bottom right corner of the vampire square/border panel and the card front.
Tie a knot in a small piece of Basic Black Scalloped Edge ribbon, snip the ends at an angle, and use a glue dot to adhere it to the sentiment circle. Tie a bow with a small piece of Linen Thread and use a glue dot to adhere it to the knotted Basic Black Scalloped Edge ribbon.
Don’t forget to add a Very Vanilla cs inside panel. I used a sponge wedge to add Soft Suede ink to the edges and lightly across the panel.
I also stamped the sentiment from the Spooktacular stamp set and a bat image from the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set in Memento Black ink on the inside panel and back of the card to pull the theme through.
