Becky's Halloween Challenge
Just before we left Orlando, Becky threw out a challenge to Misty and I to create a Halloween card using at least one of the Michaels $1 bin Halloween stamps and post before Halloween.
Well, here's what I came up with....
The card is purple cardstock (5 1/2" Square). The edges are inked using Noir Palette ink (TAC). The next layer is a 5" square dark metallic Emerald cardstock with the corners punched using a ticket punch. I then placed a birch colored cardstock (TAC) on top of the emerald cardstock and stamped my image. I paper-pieced the numbers using Adam's Family cardstock from Rusty Pickle. I then cut a frame (4 1/2" Square) from black cardstock and also ticket punched the corners. I adorned the left edge of the frame with a scrap of green gingham ribbon. Using a simple Iris folding technique, I filled in the black frame using scraps of the Adam's Family cardstock. I attached the frame in place on top of the layers to complete the card.
Thanks, Becky! I had a great time doing this card!
