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.

Mustache Thank You Card

Mustache Thank You Card

Handmade Mustache Card

Here is a great masculine card that any man would be excited to get. I used the fit to length button to get all this mustaches to look the same size. I cut all three mustaches at 3″ fit to length. I cut them all in black and then shadowed them in Bazzill bitter chocolate. For the designer paper, I choose a piece of Argyle Card stock from Me and My Big Idea Renee Argyle Green. I thought this design looked circus-esq and fit well with the mustaches. Layered the designer paper onto a piece of dark red paper and then attached cooper eyelets in each corner. I adhered all the mustaches down. Then I stamped Thank You on a little banner I cut out. I attached the banner with a brad. For the last step, I adhered the layers to a blue A2 card. Hope you like this playful masculine card.

Peacock Encouragement Card

Peacock Encouragement Card

Handmade Peacock Encouragement Card


I often like to start with a sentiment, when making cards. I started this card with a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson.

What lies behind us and lies before us are tiny compared to what lies within us

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

To get the beautiful coloring on the peacock, I inked up her body with Victorian Velvet and then a little tea dye.  I hope you love this card, and that it inspires to you to create.
