Happy Halloween 2017!!

Happy Halloween everyone!!! I hope you're in for a spooky day.

It is my favourite holiday and the best time of year to get new decor for the house. LOL

I know that I have started my Christmas series and that I said I was done Halloween, buuuut it's actually Halloween and I couldn't possibly post a Christmas card. That would be insanity.

So today, I have a super cute jack-o-lantern card to bring in the spooky day.

To begin, I cut a piece of 110lb white cardstock with the second largest of Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Rectangles" and a piece of black 65lb cardstock with the largest.

I then stamped the background words with CTMH Whisper ink. To create the face, I cut out the masks from 2" Post-It tape and placed them where I wanted them. I then sponged on Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade and finally Carved Pumpkin on the very edges.

I then removed the masks and tied a piece of natural twine around the top of the front panel. I adhered that to my black panel then the whole piece to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.

To finish off the card I used two large enamel dots and adhered them as eyes, I used a sharpie to make the middle part.

I think if I were to make this card again, I would have left the eyes out. But it's me, and we all know that I just can't leave well enough alone. The card actually ended up being a touch scarier than I had originally wanted it to be.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
