Handmade Halloween Card – Just Because
I love glitter! I saw a card in Hallmark that had glitter edges and I thought it was amazing so I decided to create my own glittery card!
I began by layering my papers on my card and then I tucked some double sided tape under the top layer. I sprinkled on a generous amount of glitter and pressed it on to make sure it was secured well. I have never tried the American Crafts double sided tape until this point, but I was very impressed – the liner comes right off of the tape when your ready, the coverage with the glitter is wonderful and none of the glitter is falling off which is VERY impressive!
I then began layering my other items to further dress up my card – a piece of a doily, with an overlay peeking out, a label sticker popped up using foam adhesive and flowers fussy cut tucked behind. A cute little pumpkin and a gorgeous gold rub on (I really like gold too) completed my card.
BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE!
Handmade Halloween Cards – Pumpkin Card
After such an elegant card as my Just Because card I was looking for something fun; as I was digging through my card supplies I found this scalloped card base, it was the perfect size for a pumpkin card! I traced the pattern onto my paper, cut it out, and adhered it to the card base. A few black triangles gave my eyes and nose, and some creative cutting made my mouth.
I wanted my pumpkin to look like it was picked right from the patch, so I used my green twine to form the vines. I gathered a few pieces which I tied my bow with and then twirling them as I glued them down to give them a more realistic look. A cute little Hello tag and clothes pin was the finishing touches.
