Boo! Did I scare you? I hope not…Monday mornings are scary enough, right? I guess Halloween mischief is in the air and has taken hold of me. I have a really fun digital card to share with you today. All the images and papers are from the Vintage Halloween Jumbo Kit
from Crafty Secrets. This incredibly cool kit has 44 vintage papers for you to choose from,
over 100 digital designs, and it’s available for instant download. So if you have some last minute cards to make, you might want to take a look. But before you do, take a look at my Crafty Secrets Trick or Treat card.
Don’t you just love this very fancy trick or treater? I wish she would come to my house, and bring her black kitty along with her! This was a super quick and easy card to make. I had it finished in under an hour, and that included selecting and printing out the papers. I simply printed my lady onto smooth white cardstock and cut her out with a Spellbinder’s label. I actually printed her twice, but fussy cut one image out to use as a mask. (It is Halloween, after all.) I placed the fussy cut image over the image on the label and then used my Distress Inks to create the spooky background. This way, I could add ink without worrying about smudging the image. When this was done, I removed the mask, and matted the label on both Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black cardstock.
I used that wonderful black and white check paper from the download to print my background paper and the paper for the rosettes as well. I matted it with black cardstock and stitched around the edges. This was glued down to a 5×7″ kraft card base.
The kitty was sized to be more or less to scale with the size of the lady, fussy cut, colored with some citrus green alcohol markers and placed at the lady’s feet. The little trick or treat bag was one I had in my stash, and I’m so glad I remembered I had it because it goes perfectly with the card.
I also printed out the fun Bingo cards because they went so well with my Trick or Treat lady’s skirt. I cut the words off the tops of the cards and turned them into banners underneath the top rosette and a greeting above the bottom one.
I had punched out circles to top the rosettes using the number grid part of the card, but then I found the cute pumpkins and covered those up. I added some stickles to dress up her costume. She’s definitely ready to party!
I kept the inside nice and simple, but kept the sentiment in the Trick or Treat theme
I computer journaled the sentiment, and added the pumpkin from the Autumn Blessings Vintage Cuts. All the Vintage cuts are drastically marked down, so now’s the time to stock up!
I used paper from my scrap bin to decorate the envelope:
And that’s it for me today, folks. I hope you got a kick out of my Crafty Secrets Trick or Treat card. Wouldn’t it be fun to be a kid again for just ONE night and go Trick or Treating just one more time? Man,we had fun! I hope your Halloween is all treats, no tricks. Thanks for stopping by, and an extra thanks for taking the time to leave a comment…you know they make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers. Until next time…
