It's World Card Making Day!

Hello! In honor of World Card Making Day  I have this Halloween card to share with you.......

"Haunted Halloween" Card

A few details about the card......
  • The pumpkin is simply 3 ovals layered over a circle.  I used adhesive foam under the top center oval to give it dimension.
  • The rosette is a 1 1/2" x 12 paper strip that's been scored at 1/4" increments.  Hot glue the ends together, form the rosette and secure it with punched circles hot glued to the front and back of the rosette.
  • The scalloped border is made up of layered circle punches.

Authentique - Glowing patterned paper & embellishments
G45 - Curtain Call & Communique
DCWV - The Midnight Spell

This card is my own personal kick-off to a weekend full of card making & crafting.  I have a few craft shows this season that I'm committed to and I have cards as well as other crafty projects to make.  And let's not forget the holiday cards I want to make too!  The weather is expected to be pretty cool & gloomy (perfect for card making/crafting!) here AND my family is looking forward to a weekend of relaxation after weeks of a very crazy schedule.  So.... I am looking forward to spending some time in my studio creating...yay!  I'll have photos to share in the weeks to come.  :)

By the way, if you haven't arrived here via the World Card Making Day website, be sure to click the link & stop by there.  There's oodles of inspiration in the Gallery, through the Blog Tour and there's a pretty sweet contest too!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time today to create something, make a card & enjoy!  :)
7:00 pm UPDATE:  It's been a great day and I'm back to share another card that I made this afternoon........


Once again, I made the layered oval pumpkin on a larger scale.  The bird is inspired by primitive craft designs I've seen.

Have a great weekend!
