CCMC 275

Good morning, Friends and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! How fun that Halloween lands on Thursday! The same day as the Create with Connie and Mary weekly challenge! This week we have a sketch to play with! Take a look!

And my card...

I love the banners! It was a great way to use up some of those designer paper scraps that we all seem to have! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Very Vanilla cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and folded in half
  • Layer of Very Vanilla cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Strips of designer paper were cut and flagged at the bottom and then adhered to Very Vanilla layer
  • Stamp greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in black StazOn and add two mini brads then adhere layer to card base using dimensionals
  • Adhere a strip of Basic Black card stock along the top of banners
  • Use the 1 3/8" circle punch to punch a circle from Summer Starfruit and sponge edges with Summer Starfruit ink then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp bat image from Halloween Hello using black StazOn ink onto Very Vanilla, cut out and adhere him to card with dimensionals
A pretty simple card! I hope your Halloween is safe and FUN!

  1. Hello Deb. Love your cards and I always enjoy seeing your posts in my email. After following you for some time now, I do have one question: What do you do with all the cards? And if you send them out, how to you post them to make sure that don't get messed up in the mail. I'm asking because I know that there's some card makers out there that stack lots of layers, or, have cloth-like flowers attached to them and all. I'd love to make cards for my friends but I never do because I don't know how to mail them. I live overseas from them and, well, I'm scared my cards would arrive a mess. Thank you and keep up the card making. Sure love them!!!

  2. Awesome Halloween card Deb! Luv the little bat, Just perfect, clean and simple.

  3. What a cool Halloween card!!! I love the bat!
