I needed a quick and easy Halloween card to affix to a plate of Macadamia nut and white chocolate cookies that I was going to bake today for my son, Brady. We will be driving to his college to attend his concert this evening, and I thought that his favorite cookies would be a nice surprise, as well as a welcomed treat! And what can be quicker and easier than making a card that showcases the "Flocked Bats" from the Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series Paper!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips:
- Let the paper do the talking! Since I was not going to be using this paper for scrapbooking, I thought that I might as well put the bats to good use! How fun to have "Fuzzy Bats" on your card!
- Layer the labels! The "wow" factor on this simple card is the sentiment! After stamping the "Spooky" sentiment from the Wicked Cool set onto Naturals Ivory card stock, it was punched out using the Designer Label Punch, and layered onto a second Basic Black Designer Label. Basic Black and Rich Razzleberry Decorative Labels were also layered.
- Glitz and Glam! Basic Rhinestones further accentuate the sentiment and add a touch of "bling" to this spooky card!
I did have several people ask for details about creating "scrunchy ribbon" like on this card. This video tutorial will explain the process I used.
I hope that you enjoyed today's quick and easy card, as well as the video tutorial. If you have any questions about the cards that I create, or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away. And remember, your comments are important to me! Until next time...
