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.
For this fun Halloween Monday card I created a larger tree scene for the Scary Cute trick-or-treaters with the Groves dies and used the Fabulous Frames dies to make a window in the beautiful Metallic & Shimmer Specialty paper. The Best Label punch was the perfect size for the sentiment.
Start with a Smoky Slate cardstock card base. Cut a Metallic & Shimmer Specialty paper panel and then die cut a frame window into the center with the Fabulous Frames dies. Die cut a Basic Black cardstock frame with the Fabulous Frames dies. Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock and die cut the tree scene into it with the Grove dies. Use Stampin’ Seal to add the tree scene to the back of the Metallic & Shimmer Specialty paper panel so that the trees show through the window. Then use glue to add the Metallic & Shimmer Specialty panel to the the card base (but don’t add glue to the trees).
Add Black Stampin’ Dimensionals (cut into small strips for the sides) to the Basic Black cardstock frame and add it to the card front so it fits around the window tree scene. Die cut a Silver Foil Specialty paper moon with the Scary Silhouette dies. Use glue to add the moon to the tree scene by tucking it behind a tree. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the trick-or-treaters image from the Scary Cute stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock so you get a dark image. Fussy cut out the image with paper snips and then use Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the image to the card front within the window tree scene slightly tucking in the bottom of the image to the bottom of the tree scene. Die cut Basic Black cardstock bats with the Scary Silhouette dies and use glue dots to add them to the card front overlapping the moon.
Stamp the sentiment from the Scary Cute stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. Punch out the sentiment with the Best Label punch. Use glue to add the sentiment to the bottom right of the card front slightly tucked into the frame. Add Wink of Stella to the trick-or-treater’s bags and rhinestones around the right sides of the frame for sparkle.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. Stamp the sentiment from the Scary Cute stamp set and add a strip of Metallic & Shimmer Specialty paper to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
