Two weeks ago, I shared a super-fun Halloween card for the FabFriday sketch challenge. The card features a large circle with a spooky Halloween scene – you can see that card here. In my post for that card, I shared how I had pulled the focal scene from an abandoned card that I couldn’t get to work with the background I had created. Today’s card showcases that abandoned background, repurposed with a different focal image. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Super-Simple. This card essentially consists of a piece of Halloween Street Specialty Designer Series Paper (cropped along the strip of the paper), a sentiment that’s stamped along the line of the paper and a fun focal image. There’s a lot of white space on this card, but it works really well because there’s so much to look at on the base of this card. I showcased the small ghost on a slightly-larger gray circle to add space between the ghost and the bold stripes on the designed paper.
- Spooky Fun and Sweet Home. The paper is fun, and the placement of the sentiment is fun, but let’s be honest – the sweet ghost steals the show on this card, right? The ghost is pulled from my Sweet Home photopolymer stamp set. You may have seen the adorable 3-D houses from this set all over the catalog and internet – if you haven’t, you should Google search them because they are adorable. While this card doesn’t feature a house, it does feature a small element from this bundle. If you want to see more, check out Stampin’ Up!’s video that showcases this great bundle:
- Halloween Street. The base of this front panel features a gorgeous, striped piece of Halloween Street Specialty Designer Series Paper. I love the balance of colors and simplicity of the design. The pack of papers is filled with some great pages, including two pages of gorgeous, silver-embossed images. The designs are cute (and some are creepy) – a perfect starting point for a card, don’t you think?
