What's Brewing?

Fall is my favorite time of year not only because I love the bright colors but also because I'm inspired to make lots of holiday cards. Halloween cards are a treat since I get to play with all sorts of creepy images and fun embellishments. Today's Halloween card pairs the Witch Feet digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps with the Halloween Whimsy Patterned Paper by K&Company. The cute sentiment is from Stamps by Judith.

My card base is Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of Halloween Whimsy patterned paper and a strip of distressed Dark Lovely Lilac cardstock. For the circle I used 1 1/4" Flourishes White on 1 3/8" Deep Orange Dream then Basic Black punched using the Scallop Circle Punch. After assembling the layers I punched holes in the scallops.

The image was printed on Flourishes White and colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced around the edges of the image before layering on to Basic Black and attaching to the card base with mounting tape. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Flourishes White and cut to fit.  To embellish the card I added a bow and Beetle Black Crushed Velvet Brads in each corner.

Hope you have a fantastic day!
