Spooky Halloween

I love to make Halloween cards and decided to make a gatefold card using this week's sketch from Card Positioning Systems with a Halloween Theme. I cut orange CS with Spellbinders Beaded circle die and sponged with Black ink. This I cut in half and attached to a Black CS base made into a gatefold card. Trimmed the sides with Halloween confetti and ribbon.Added twine for the tie closure wrapped around a bat brad. Attached computer sentiment that I sponged with black.




Finished the inside with an Owl stamped with Versamark and Black EP. Then sponged on assorted inks to create the night sky with a full moon. Used a Yellow CS mat under image and finished sides with more orange CS, ribbon, confetti and sentiment.

CPS sketch 235: See on right.
