A Halloween Card September 13, 2010

I had so much fun creating this card! It uses a stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Heebie Jeebies, and let me just say, ADORABLE! 🙂

I stamped the bats onto black cardstock with VersaMark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then to give it a misty look, I swept Shimmer Paint (Frost White) across the card. The bats acted as a resist to the paint creating a fun effect. The sentiment came from the same set, however its in the middle of a spiderweb, so I used a Stampin’ Up marker to color just the sentiment. I punched it out and layered it on a scallop oval. Finished the card off with the striped and polka dot ribbons, and voila! A fun Halloween card, all ready for the mail.

Supplies: Cardstock, Shimmer Paint, embossing powder, punches (Stampin’ Up). Heebie Jeebies stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Ribbon (Joanns).

Here’s a video on making this card:
