Hocus Pocus

I love making Halloween cards!  I think there is just so much inspiration when it comes to Halloween!  This one started with the chevron paper from My Mind's Eye - Lime Twist 'Fly a Kite' 6x6 stack.   Not a Halloween stack but, a great paper for Halloween! 

I decided the focal point would be the rosette which is the spider rosette from the Ribbons and Rosette's cartridge.   I cut 4 of them at 2" each and glued them together. I cut the center medallion from that cartridge as well but, it wasn't the spider cut.  I do know that it was cut using the real size dial and 2 1/4" in green and 2" in orange.  The Hocus Pocus stamp is from Studio G and then I inked the edges of the medallions.

I added a black strip of paper that I embossed using the Spiderweb folder and then added a strip of ribbon from the Target dollar bin.   My final addition was the spider stamped from Inkadinkado.

On the inside, I used some spiderweb stamps and the spider from Inkadinkado and a sentiment from Studio G.   I really love how bright this card turned out for a Halloween card.  :)

I'm Not Scared

This card is a simple Halloween card.   The paper is all DCWV and then the purple center strip, I border punched with a Martha Stewart punch and added a piece of lime green ribbon from Michael's that has silver glitter spiderwebs on it.   The sentiment in the center is from the DCWV paper and punched using a circle punch.   Then the spiderweb cut is from Pumpkin Carvings at 3"   I put a shadow of green behind it and then pleated tulle behind the entire centerpiece.   I added some fake plastic spiders and black floss for the webs.  Happy Halloween!
