Elizabeth Craft Designs October Group Post Halloween

Hi everyone, welcome to another Elizabeth Craft Designs Group Post. This month the theme is Halloween. I had fun turning the Castle Folding Card into a spooky old Mansion. Below you will find the steps to create your own Halloween Card.

Step 1 - Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 - Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Apply Distress Oxide Ink using a Foam Applicator. Starting from the bottom going up I used Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet, Black Soot.

Step 3 - Diecut Castle Folding Card (the side with the windows) using Black Cardstock. Trim off the embossed area where the fold would be. You only need the front of the Castle. Adhere Purple Metallic to the back of the diecut windows. Diecut the little windows using Purple Cardstock and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere the Mansion to the front of the card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 4 - Diecut Scarecrow and mice using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the pieces and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 - Stamp Spooky Sentiment (Hello Pumpkin) inside the card using Versafine Onyx Black Ink (I stamped inside because I had no space on the front of the card.)

I love how the ink blending on the background makes the scarecrow glow. Below you will find the link to the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
