Halloween Card #1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I feel like I am already behind on my Halloween cards. I am trying to keep them simple, cause I need to make a lot of cards. I am so happy with how the first couple turned out. I was so worried the Martha Stewart Paper and K and Company Accents wouldn’t  coordinate, but they look great together. Before I started making my Halloween cards, I got out my limited Halloween supplies, and  gathered purple, green, black, and orange embellishments. Anyways,  I hope you enjoying looking at my handmade Halloween card ideas.

One of my lovely coworkers asked me to craft her some thank you cards. This is one of cards I made for her. On of the cards, she requested was for her professor, who loves horses. I started out with giant horse shoe, and hated it. Once I decided I wanted a variety of circles, I loaded up my cricut mat with various scraps of paper. I cut up a couple different sizes of circles, scalloped circles, and horse shoes. I played with laying out the circles on the card until I had a pleasing design. I made a half circle with my circles. Then I made  stitching lines with my white gel pen and sharpie pen in black. A button, hemp, a Tim Holtz Gear, and various brads were added to the circles for extra embellishment. For the greeting, I used black embossing power. I hope you enjoy this simple, and fun card.

So I came up with a way to make a Wookie. I made a video to show how to make your very own wookie card for the Star Wars fan in your life.

Handmade Thank You Nest Card


One of my coworkers asked me to make her some Thank You cards today. I made this one for her and love it so much, I don’t want to give it away. To make this card, I started with an A2 kraft cardstock base. I cut the nest from Give Hoot at 2 1/2 inches. The base layer is brown recollection card stock, the top layer is brown bazzill texture card stock, and the eggs are blue pattern paper from K & Company Abrianna Specialty Paper Pad. I attached the nest with some pop dots. I wrapped some hemp around the card and then secured it with Studio G Polka Dot button. I used some glue dots to attach two blue buttons below the hemp. For sentiment, I stamped Thank You in embossing ink on Ribbon Tag, and embossed it with ebony embossing powder. The banner was attached with pop dots. For the finishing touches, I corner rounder the bottom right corner, added some dashed lines, and used glossy accents on the eggs.  Hope you like this card.
