Yes, another Halloween card today but, this one made with the 'A Child's Year' cartridge which I love. I don't think it gets nearly the credit it deserves. The reason I like it so much is because it's really versatile, especially if you didn't have many cartridges. It has LOTS of holiday cuts on it although, no layering. So, today I tried to create some layers! I cut the little witch from the Hallown2, shift key at 4". I only cut two layers, one cream color and one black. On the cream colored layer, I colored the girls socks and the pumpkin pail in orange using my Sharpies and then the broom stick and the pumpkin pail handle in black.
So, I cut the witches hat, dress and some shoes. I had to do some trimming to make the rest of the dress hem jagged and trim back the arms to show hands. When I was done, I ran them through the Xyron (front side down so that they would be sticky) and then glittered them with black Martha Stewart Crafts black glitter. When I was done, I used the Glossy Accents on all the black pieces and let them dry. Once they were dry, I used Orange Peel stickles on the hat brim and the hem of the skirt. I inked the edges and the broom bristles and the witch was done! I am happy with her & I LOVE the stickles.
The mat on the front is from the DCWV Amber Autumn stack. I like that this paper has more of a vintage Halloween look instead of the cute, fun Halloween. I inked the edges of the paper with the Cat's Eye Tangerine ink pad. The ribbon is KI Memories self adhesive ribbon. The sentiment is a Studio G stamp on black cardstock with a self adhesive frame from the Making Memories Spellbound adhesive set and the glitter pumpkins from the (you guessed it) Target dollar bins.
On the inside, I used the same cream cardstock in the mat on the front and punched the corners using a Fiskars corner punch. I inked it with the tangerine ink and then stamped the 'Best Witches' sentiment from Studio G, also in tangerine. The black cats were paper punches that were in a set from Cutting Edge.
