This week I’m sharing a simple Halloween card using die cutting, this card would be great for party invitations I think as it would be easy to set up a production line for mass production! I decided on Honey Bee Stamps’ “The Name’s Jack” Honey Cuts for this card as the size of the dies themselves are great to use as a focal point!
I started by cutting out the two ghosts from white card stock, I held my chosen facial expressions for them in place with washi tape while I ran them through my machine again. I cut the ghost silhouettes out from black card stock and adhered to the back of my white ghosts so that their expressions were coloured in black!
I cut a black circle using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts and used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to trim the straight edges. I used the same die from the “Basic Rectangles” to cut a panel from white card stock and adhered my black curved panel to it using Scor-Tape. I took one of the pumpkin expressions from Honey Bee Stamps’ “The Name’s Jack” Honey Cuts and cut through the top centre of the black section. I used Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink on some white card stock to back the face to make it look like it was glowing red. I used 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to pop both of my ghosts up in place as if they were looking at the red face, terrified!
I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock and adhered my panel with my ghosts to it with Scor-Tape. I stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Spooky Village” stamp set with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink using my Misti stamping tool. I trimmed it down to a banner shape, popped it up on my card using foam tape and adhered my entire panel to my card base.
Thanks for reading lovelies! I’ll see you next week with another card.
