A little Halloween Fun

It's hard to believe fall is almost upon us and the kids will be headed back to school before you know it.  This is a great time to get started on those Halloween cards.  This card looks complicated but it is actually so easy the kids can do it with you.  It would make great classroom cards or cards for teachers, co-workers, you name it.  If you wanted a different design (no little witch) there are some adorable designs in the Frightfully Fun stamp set (B1453).  It has a crazy bat, owl and skull along with a happy little pumpkin, mummy and ghost, along with 7 cute little sentiments.  So here it is with the basic instructions for you to adapt to what you want, hope you like it.


Ok so lets get started.  We begin with a piece of black card stock that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" (this will give us a finished 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card which is a standard A2 card).  Fold the card stock in half left to right.  Then fold the top half back in half right to left.  Cut a piece of colonial white cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4 and stamp the adorable little witch from the Halloween Greetings stamp set on the bottom right.  Adhere to inside of card.  Cut a piece of thistle card stock to 2 x 5 3/8" and adhere to the front of card.  Now cut a piece of the Scaredy Cat B&T (background and texture) paper to 1 7/8 x 5 1/4 stamp it with the sentiment (I choose this cute one from the same set as the little witch and the broom) and broom (or design of choice).  I added one of the little plastic stars from the Scaredy Cat Assortment (just to give the card some dimension).  I just loved how it turned out.  Best part, I have tons of paper left over to make more cards and this paper is super versatile and can be used for lots of things not just Halloween.

Below is a list of all the supplies I used to make the card.  They can all be purchased from my website at www.craftwithronnie.ctmh.com or by clicking the shopping cart at the top of this post. Happy Crafting!!!!
