HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Now let’s make a Birthday Card and have a double celebration!
So, gather up all your favorite colors for Halloween. Mine are always purple, lime green, orange and black. Once you have your card stock together grab your dies and let’s cut some paper!
So, I first arranged my colors in the order I thought looked best and set a frame die onto each card stock and ran them through my die cutting machine. Now you can put your card together two different ways. First you can keep each of your card stock just as it is cut and layer them on top of each other. This will give you some dimension with out adding all the double-sided foam tape! I chose to use the die one size down for each of my panels and cut out the inside of each. This way I was able to create a die-inlay effect but using a frame die!
After all my card stock was cut I started layering them together, and the final piece I popped up using some double-sided tape. This was all done directly onto my Standard A2 size card base.
I then grabbed a scrap piece of black card stock and stamp my sentiment using the Best Friends Clear Stamp Set with my clear embossing ink and white embossing powder and heat set until it was all melted. I placed this on an angle onto my black panel.
To embellish my card, I chose to use my gloss drops in purple lime green and orange. I think it just added to the cauldron effect I was going for with this card.
