1,2,3… Easy Halloween Card
Halloween is around the corner and to be honest I don’t celebrate this holiday with scary parties or costumes, but I love to make Halloween cards with different colors and non-traditional images and this is one of those. To create this card I used some sprays from Imagine that you will love! But first take a look at my card:
The process of this was very simple; I took a piece of whisper white card stock and a background stencil. I selected Paisley Swirl Petite from Rebecca Baer Collection and sprayed the free areas of the stencil with two different sprays from Imagine. First I used Cherry Blossom Walnut Ink, then I applied Lilac Walnut Ink and the last one layer was with Fireworks Grape Jelly to accent the color and give it a little shimmer.
I removed the stencil and washed with warn water while the paper totally dried. It only takes a few seconds.
To decorate this layer I cut a spider several times using Tangerine Tango card stock and paste in place all of them using On Point Glue, then I sprayed with the third product that I mention at the beginning, the fantastic Goose Bumps. It helped to create a special effect of texture and at the same time it is shimmery.
To finalize the card I cut the borders of the stenciled piece using a MFT Die-Namics Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die cut to use this piece as decorated layer.
Then I cut the word LAUGH from the center of this layer using a die cut from the Little Yellow Bicycle to make on the card the inlaid technique. This is very fun technique where you combine pieces of die cuts and to make a twist, just like I did on this project, you can replace the hidden cut by a color cut. To make this I only cut the word from the center of the stenciled piece, one time on fun foam and one time on elegant eggplant card stock and pasted all of this in the same place.
As final touch, I stamped a complement sentiment Don´t be afraid using Memento Tangelo Ink and sprayed with Fireworks New Sprout. I cut it with a circle die and then with the same scallop stitched border that I used on the stenciled layer.
I hope you enjoyed creating this card using 1…2… 3 Imagine sprays!!
