“When witches go riding & black cats are seen the moon laughs and whispers: ‘Tis Halloween”, this is just one of the spooky Halloween cards we are featuring in our Halloween card kit. It’s a favorite of mine for sure! You can view our entire card kit on our website.
Today I would like to share with you how I incorporate 3×4 and 4×6 Elements into my card creating process.I love working with the 3×4 & 4×6 Elements from Simple Stories. Not only are they great resources for scrapbooking but they make awesome cards as well. I feature them often in my card kits because they are full of great sayings and have great focal points to them. You can see below how cute they really are!!
When working with them, I try to pair up the card elements that coordinate with one another. That is what I did below with the ghost and the ‘Happy Halloween’ title you see below. I also used some of the plaid pattern paper to divide the two element cards. The possibilities are really endless while working with these cards.
The last card that I would like to highlight is one that is featuring a 4×6 elements. It is one that I had to trim down because the base of my card was only 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. So I just simply trimmed off the two outside edges to fit my card base. With this card, I featured several different stickers from the Happy Haunting cardstock stickers. These too are not only for scrapbooking but are great with card making as well. I love the sturdiness of cardstock stickers, they feel and look great on cards. I feature them on a lot of my card kits too. So as you can see on the ‘All Hallows Eve’ card, I’ve trimmed down the two sides and centered it between the top and bottom of my black cardstock base. Then I added my stickers, pattern paper, rhinestone and floss. Another thing that I would like to point out, that you may not think to do but you can add your title stickers vertically to your card or project, you don’t always have to add them horizontally.
Another fun addition to this card was adding a black rhinestone to the body of the black spider. This adds more character and depth to your project too! Not to mention the cuteness!! I love how the littlest of things can make a card just pop!
Well that is all for today. I hope I have inspired you to create some Halloween magic this holiday season. I sure enjoy creating cards and what’s even better is when I get a handmade card in the mail made by someone else. It always brings a smile to my face. So my challenge to you is to create something from the heart and bring a smile to that special someone you love.
