We don’t see many ideas for handmade girly Halloween cards and today’s absolutely adorable card makes up for that!
Chalk this up to one of those designs you never knew you needed – handmade girly Halloween cards. Never did we picture how gorgeous a distinctly feminine Halloween card could be. Allison’s vision is so sweet and so loaded with details and we are here for it!
Allison started by making a mini slimline card base from white card stock and added a layer of soft cream to the center. With the largest die in our Mini Slimline Tabbed Deckle Die set, she cut a piece of patterned paper from our Welcome Spring 6 X 6 Paper Pad by KittieKraft and adhered that layer to her card with some adhesive foam tape.
Using the next size down die, Allison cut a piece of vellum and then a piece of pink card stock with the next size down from that. She adhered them together with the adhesive for the vellum in the center so it was hidden by the pink die cut which was attached with more adhesive foam tape.
Now that she had her layers done, Allison stamped her cat, hat and broom from our Halloween Cats set onto scraps of white card stock, colored them in and cut them out with our coordinating Halloween Cats dies. She chose another pattern from our Welcome Spring Paper Pad and cut it with our Jack-O-Lanterns dies and the stems from scraps of white card stock. Using inks from Color Fuse Set #11, she added touches of color to her pumpkin stems and adhered them with liquid glue to her pretty floral pumpkins.
Allison arranged her pumpkins over her pink die cut, adhering them with a mix of double sided tape and foam adhesive. She added her die cut details over these with more dimensional adhesive.
She then stamped her sentiment onto a scrap of white card stock and trimmed it close. After cutting another piece of white card stock to offer a very narrow border to mat her sentiment, Allison used more of the same green inks as her stems to add some color to the edge of her mat.
She adhered the two sentiment layers together, added it to the card with dimensional adhesive and then added a touch of clear Stickles to the broom and hat and this delightful card was ready to treat a lucky lady.|
