I started with Tangelo Twist cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and new Woodland Embossing Folder (this embossing folder has so many possibilities I took some Smoky Slate ink and a sponge and rubbed the raised parts of the tress so they look a little spooky. Next I took a piece of Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and matted it with Basic Gray cardstock before attaching it to the cardfront. I cut a small square of Very Vanilla Cardstock and matted it with Basic Black cardstock for the perfect mat for my potion bottle. The potion bottle is from the Sweet Hauntings stamp set and was stamped with black ink on Smoky Slate cardstock before cutting it out with Paper Snips and attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.
For the greeting element I started by making a mat piece of it using the Tangelo Twist cardstock and embossing it with the Big Shot and Chevron Embossing Folder. The “boo” greeting is from the Boo to You Framelits and was cut out of the new Basic Black Glimmer Paper (so pretty). I used the new Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach the greeting and it works like a charm!! I added a couple of spiders that were stamped from the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set (which coordinates with the Boo to You Framelits so they were super easy to cut out (and you save 15% when you buy the bundle) and used dimensionals to pop both those little suckers up. The final element I added was the Spider Web Doily, I used just a quarter of one and once again the Fine Tip Glue Pen was perfect for attaching this to the cardfront (notice I waited to the end so I could have the web coming from the far corner of the cardbase and onto the cardfront. The final touch was to add a few rhinestones of various sizes to the spider web for some extra texture and dimension.
This card turned out so fun, it’s busier than some I create but I love every element (but had to finally tell myself to back again and stop adding things, do you ever have that problem??) The Happy Haunting Product Suite is so fun and all the products work perfectly to help you create the perfect project, without searching for products to match and compliment, AWESOME!!!
