Happy Halloween

I don't think I've made a Halloween card before but I suppose there's a first time for everything.  I made this one for a friend who will know who they are when they receive it!

I've used Craftwork cards Ritzy cardstock and some Craftwork Cards black pearlescent cardstock.  I punched the scalloped oval with a Stampin' Up punch and added a Craftwork Cards oval message to the centre.  This was stuck onto the card with foam pads to add a little dimension.

This time I chose 'Orange' as my theme.  I started off with some orange background paper and overstamped it using A Field of Sky stamp and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink then inked the edges with the same ink. I cut the flower using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and painted over it using Spiced Marmalade Distress Crackle Paint.  When it had dried I overstamped using a Fancy Pants background stamp.

The flower is stuck onto the card using foam pads to give a little dimension.  Finally I added Card Candy to the centre of the flower and to diagonally opposite corners of the ATC.  I used orange glitter glue on the Card Candy in the centre of the flower to add some sparkle.

I chose the theme of 'Numbers' for my 'N' ATC.  The background paper is from a big case of paper which I bought at Costco a couple of years ago.  I used a Tim Holtz stamp and black ink to stamp the numbers onto it and then inked the edges.

The blue numbers are die cut using Mac 'n' Cheese dies.  I actually cut several of the 2 and stuck them on top of each other.  The ATC is finished with two pieces of black Card Candy from Craftwork Cards.
