Halloween is on a Monday this year and I’ll be counting down to Halloween with a new Halloween project on Mondays until October 31st.
Motion cards are always fun and this swinging boots card created with the Bewitching Bundle and a die cut piece from the Candy Canes dies is easy to make and fabulous!
Start with a Fresh Freesia cardstock card base. Cut a Basic Black cardstock panel and a Fresh Freesia cardstock panel. Dry emboss the Fresh Freesia cardstock panel with the Painted Textured 3D embossing folder. Glue the embossed panel to the Basic Black cardstock panel and then wrap the panels with three strips of glitter washi tape from the Glitter Washi Four Pack folding the edges around the panels to secure on the back of the panels. Glue the wrapped panels to the card base.
Stamp the witch’s hat and the boots from the Bewitching bundle in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock (I used my Stamparatus to get dark black images). Punch out the hat with the Witch Hat Builder punch (or fussy cut for a closer cut) and fussy cut out the boots leaving about 1/2″ of the Basic White cardstock at the top. Color the images with Stampin’ Blends and wrap a strip of glitter washi around the hat for the hat band. Add Wink of Stella to the images for sparkle. Die cut a Basic White cardstock candy cane sliding label. Trim off the sides and cut one side about 1/4″ above the hole to make the swinging mechanism. You could also create a swinging mechanism with a strip of cardstock 3/4″ x 3/4″ with a 3/8″ hole on one end.
Glue the swinging mechanism to the top of the fussy cut boots. Add a mini Black Stampin’ Dimensional on the the back of the hat so that when you slip the swinging mechanism on the mini Black Stampin’ Dimensional only the stockings and boots show when turned over.
Add another Black Stampin’ Dimensional to the top of the hat.
Die cut a Basic White cardstock scalloped stitched rectangle with the Scalloped Contours dies. Add the hat and the boots slightly askew on the left side of the scalloped stitched rectangle (so that the swinging mechanism is in place). Be sure that the boots swing free side to side.
Stamp the sentiment from the Best Witches stamp set in Memento Black ink on the top right side of the scalloped stitched rectangle. Stamp the spider from the Bewitches stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. Fussy cut out the spider with paper snips and add Wink of Stella to the spider’s eyes for sparkle. Add the spider to the hat band with glue dots.
Add the scalloped stitched rectangle to the center of the card front overlapping the wrapped glitter washi tape.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cardstock panel to write your message. Stamp the spider from the Bewitching stamp set & the sentiment from the Best Witches stamp set in Memento Black ink on the inside panel and back of the card to pull the theme through.
Also add strips of Basic Black cardstock and embossed Fresh Freesia cardstock layered together on the inside and back of the card.
