HAPPY HALLOWEEN Cookie Cutter Card

Boo!  Today’s card features the all New in the Holiday Catalog 2016 TWO really fun Halloween sets to make and send for some fun “scary” cards for your friends and family!  This cute punched out skeleton little guy is from the the Cookie Cutter Punch on page 53 of the Holiday Catalog.  There are four little people to choose from, check them out!  Darling!   I used the STAMPED scary bat from the same stamp set of which I stamped the skeleton guy!  Those bats “eyes” are spooky to me!  We have other bats this season in our other stamp sets, but this one is like “he’s” really looking at you.. I’m pretty sure he’s a HE.

I used the Whisper White THICK card stock for my base and basic black for the layer and the cut out bats using the Halloween Scenes Edgelits dies!  Page 52, HC.  I wanted to add a bit more dimension and texture and interest (all these things!) to my Pumpkin Pie piece.  Then I decided to “string” around in our Black twine to complete my card.  No rhyme or reason on that stringing “technique”  haha!  It’s not really a “technique” but I’m just calling it that make it sound more “technical.” haha.

I wanted to add some fun decor to my white envie, so I just adhered a piece of scrap Halloween designer series paper to the outside and just trimmed around the edges and presto! It’s done!  I adhered it with just some snail.  I did POP UP the orange pumpkin piece with those awesome blossom dimensionals we have!  I use those just about every single. day.   I then stamped on the “side” my sentiment from the Spooky Fun stamp set, which I think is a great one this year!  Lots of “spooky” images and I do love the fonts, too..  🙂

This is a really simple and quick to put together Halloween card, go ahead and send a few out, especially if you’re not accustomed to sending out Halloween cards.  Just do it, it’s so much fun and who wouldn’t enjoy receiving a cute little Halloween card like this one?  AND it shows your thinking of them, too!  You can also remember to maybe stamp one of the small images on your envelope to add some fun for the mail deliverer!

Hope this gives you some ideas to go create a few!  So, BOO someone this year with a handmade, personal, specially created by YOU card!

Remember for any supplies you may need, just click on the images below and it will take to my stamp “boutique!” Well…my store, but I kinda like “boutique” sounds rather sophisticated…Have a wonderful day!

Thanks SO much for stopping in and I hope it’s a great Tuesday.

As always, I’m here for you, email, call or text!  If you need a Holiday catalog or our awesome Annual catalog and do not have a demonstrator, I’d love to be yours!  Let me know if you need one and your contact info, and it’s out the door in a jif to you!

Take care and mucho hugs to all!

  1. Hi Deb, this is one of the cutest Halloween Cards I’ve seen. Love the black string especially. How’s the weather there? Still pretty “summery” here. The weather is warm, but I truly hate the sun sets so early and the darkness comes so early too.

    • Golly, thanks so much, Nancy. I’m honored from your sweetness. You know, I really didn’t have a “plan” when I started with this card, things just started kind of falling into place, but I love embellishing my cards, but I have to be careful to not have them be so “busy” looking. It’s funny though with this one, I made an ink smudge on it and just HAD to add another bat, which 3’s I think is the “rule” so it worked. I think I got a bit
      “bat happy!” And I do not like bats. Who does? haha! I think some do. The weather here has been just absolutely gorgeous, stunning with the Aspen leaves turning their majestic colors in our yard and on the mountain drives. I’m holding onto this high 70’s and low 80’s during the days, however the nights do come down to the 50’s…that’s “freezing” to me! haha. I know, nothing to your Long Island cooler weather..I have noticed the sun sets coming way too early in the day for me, too. I’m really latching on to every bit of this beautiful Fall weather. Ryan is really enjoying you guys cooler weather now in the City…it’s more bearable…walking daily to the hospital. Take care and thanks always for stopping in!
