Happy Halloween Card
In a previous post, "My Joann's Haul", I showed you a few stamps I bought in the $1 bins. On this standard sized A2 card I used 2 of them.
Ivory cardstock from The Paper Company, cut at 4.2" x11", folded in half
Happy Halloween and the Spooky House stamps and Memento brand ink in Tuxedo Black
Markers, I had old Crayola markers on hand so I used those
The black glitter paper is "Black Tie" found at Michael's that was left over from a frame I cut out on the paper/sheet. (The project will be shown on October 16, 2011 as part of a Halloween blog hop so stay tuned.)
SU's Going Grey inkpad and Fiskars School Days Clear stamps- Argyle strip on left
Place your stamps where you want on the page, centering as best as possible. Then add the Art Philosophy frame (Cricut cart from Close to My Heart, using the Butterfly 2/shift buttons) remnant just below the spooky house stamp. Color in your stamps using your markers. Using the Going Grey ink, stamp your Argyle strip along the top of the cardstock. Then, turn your stamp upside down, reink, and line up the argyles so that you have the little "x" marks on the top and bottom of your strip.
That's it. Easy easy!
