It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!
I love being able to mix and match my stamps, so the other day I was brainstorming which (previously released) sets I could match up with the Halloween sets. ** LIGHT BULB** when my eyes hit I LIKE YOU. Since I can’t stop saying how much I love Halloween, I figured I might as well make a card that says it, too. You can pretty much bank on a Christmas version of this in the coming months (don’t say I didn’t warn you).
This card definitely has a lot of layers and depth. Here’s a detail shot of the main image panel, which has a die cut circle base, a pinked circle and another circle layered on top. By matting the pinked circle it is set off and catches the eye a little more than if it had not been. From this angle, you can also see I popped up the pumpkin and the bat (both from SPOOKY CUTIES), as well as the “&” punched circle (from I LIKE YOU). Did you know that a 3/4″ circle punch works perfectly for popping out/up the “&” circle?
I bet you didn’t expect to see aqua on a Halloween card! I love how it pairs with the orange, black, purple and green! I added aqua/teal colored sequins to tie into the aqua cardstock panel and to give the card a little bit of sparkly flair.
