Hi friends! Happy Monday! We hope you had a wonderful weekend! We’re delighted to welcome back special guest Cheiron Brandon for this fun and creative card showcasing a fun take on a Halloween card! Be sure to read on for more information, and enjoy!
‘Tis the season for Halloween cards. I love creating Halloween cards and sending them to friends. I am always looking for things in my craft stash that I can use all year long. One of these things is the Tim Holtz Sizzix Happy Hour dies, I love creating cocktails for all seasons. Today I have created a Halloween card with some spooky sparkly cocktails that are sure to put you in the Halloween mood.
To create this card, I started by cutting three cocktails from the Tim Holtz SIzzix Happy Hour dies. I cut the “cocktail” parts from glitter paper in Halloween colors and the glasses from grey kraft core cardstock. I assembled the cocktails and gave them a few fun Halloween accent..including a creepy eye inked with Mushroom alcohol ink, and some die cut bats from the Gatekeeper die Set.
For the card, I cut a panel of watercolor cardstock and stamped and embossed the web from the Stampers Anonymous Life of the Party set with white detail embossing powder . It makes the perfect backdrop for this spooky get together. I cut a shelf from Distress Woodgrain cardstock that I had sprayed with Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stains. I cut the ‘screws’ for the shelf from Metallic Kraft Stock.
I adhered the shelf to the panel with Distress Collage Medium in matte, then I added the cocktails to the shelf, popping up the center one with foam tape. To finish the card, I stamped the ‘I’m Here For the Boos’ sentiment from the Stampers Anonymous Life of the Party set.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and to Cheiron for being our guest!
