Happy Halloween To You

Well, the calendar says it’s October 31st and so that means it is officially Halloween!  And so whether today holds parties, trick-or-treating, pumpkins, or just hanging out at home; I wanted to wish you a happy and safe Halloween!

For today’s card, I wanted to get some good time in with this Frightful Sight designer series paper.  See, this is one of those paper packs that I thought was super cute and just my style for Halloween – and then I let it sit on my shelf for months!  Can anyone relate to that?  (Please, someone say yes!)

Anyway, I realized that Halloween was almost here and so I grabbed my paper and started playing around.  The basic layout of this card was from a sketch my mom shared with me years ago but I think it still holds up.  I sponged the edges of just about everything with Basic Grey ink to help give it a dirty/spooky feel and I especially love how it turned out on the cat.  The pumpkin was made by taking a 1” circle punch and punching out two circles.  I trimmed one down into an oval and then cut the second in half to glue behind the first “circle”.  I finished it off with some scrap Always Artichoke cardstock to make the stem.  Pop a few pieces up on dimensionals and add a Basic Grey corduroy button (currently available for a steal on the clearance rack) and there you go!

So from our house to yours:

Have a Spooky, Fun, and Happy Halloween!
