A Halloween Card

Inlägget postat av: on October 21, 2017

Hello everyone!

October has come so fast and only 10 more days until Halloween. I love to do all kind of Halloween crafts – cards, little treats and decorations – even if we don’t celebrate it anymore like we did when our girls were little. But when can you use all those strong colors together without making your creation look weird? So my first project for today is a Halloween card:

It’s a smaller card, measuring about 12 x 12 cm. I used some orange cardstock in the background and stamped different stamps from the Splats Kit onto two of the corners. Since the card with it’s many layers is full enough, I wanted a quiet background. So instead of using dark ink I used golden embossing powder to add the splats.

Then I’ve added some corugated paper to the center of my card. On top of that I’ve put another piece of orange cardstock, using a color slightly darker than the background.

I also added two decagons and a strip of yellow cardstock before I attached the image.

This cute owl – and also the leaves and banner – are from the Halloween 2014 stamp set. The owl has been colored in with Copics. When I glued it onto my card I realized that I used browns on the feet as well but since there’s nowhere to sit on for this cutie it didn’t bother me.

The small leaves add a fall-ish touch and their size is also great to put them on different spots on the card, without drawing too much attention.

Hope to see you all back again later today for my second creation.

Hugs, Kathrin
