Scary…..BOOOoooo….

I can’t believe how fast the month of August has FLOWN by! School starts in the Oshkosh and Winneconne schools on Thursday……HOW CAN THAT BE?!?!? I am sooooooo not ready for summer to be over yet! ~sigh~

Ah well, before you know it, September will be a memory and then October and halloween will be upon us. I LOVE this card that I recently created for a swap.

Flat Card

Do you like the scary eyes peering at you from inside the card?? Sppooooooky……..

Inside of Card

This is a close-up of the card. There are three different layers in this card and below are the dimensions:
WHISPER WHITE (#100730) CARDSTOCK — 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (card base scored at 4 1/4″)
BASIC BLACK (#121045) CARDSTOCK —
 4” x 5 1/4″
WHISPER WHITE (#100730) CARDSTOCK — 3 3/4″ x 5”

Close-up

I then stamped the JAR OF HAUNTS (#142247) mummy onto the card front. After stamping the mummy, I dabbed the corner of a baby wipe into a SMOKY SLATE CLASSIC STAMPIN’ PAD (#131179) and lightly wiped it back and forth over the mummy strips.

This adorable set is part of our Holiday Catalog that will be released on Sept. 1, 2016. If you haven’t gotten yours yet from me, let me know and I will drop one in the mail to you!

Card Front

I wrapped a black ribbon around the top of the card tying a single knot that hovered over the sentiment. I then popped up the black layer using STAMPIN’ DIMENSIONALS (#104430).

What do you think of this BOOOOOtiful card?!?!?!

Bundle of Hope

Below is a card that we created at my last card buffet. I LOVE this set. You can do so many beautiful cards using this set!

Bundle of Hope

The sentiment on the front of this card comes from SUNSHINE SAYINGS STAMP SET (#141594). The flower was cut using the SUNSHINE WISHES THINLIT DIES (#141489) and the butterfly was cut from dapper denim and vellum cardstock using the BUTTERFLY THINLIT DIES (#137360). To add a bit of bling, the RHINESTONE BASIC JEWELS (#119246) were used.

Bundle of Hope Inside

Here are the dimensions for this card.
WHISPER WHITE (#100730) CARDSTOCK — 5 1/2” x 8 1/2″ (card base scored at 4 ¼”); Whisper White Layer — 5″ x 3 ¾”
EMERALD ENVY (#141415) CARDSTOCK — 5 1/4″ x 4″
VELLUM (#101856) CARDSTOCK — Cut with butterfly thinlit

Bundle of Hope Close-up
