Card A Day Blog Post: Halloween

Hi everyone, hope you all have a wonderful weekend. It's hard to believe that the holidays are soon approaching, and it's time to start thinking about holiday cards. The theme for this week at The Card A Day Blog is Halloween, and here is what I created for my turn this week.

To make my card, I first started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. For my background paper, I cut a piece of black card stock at 5.25" x 4", and using the star and swirls stamp from the Bat N Moon Mini stamp set from, Inkadinkado,  I randomly stamped around the paper with Versa Mark clear embossing ink, added gold embossing powder, then heated it up with my heat gun. I adhered that piece to the top of my card base.

For my moon image, I used the moon and bats stamp from that same set, following the same procedure as the background, then punched it out with a 2" circle punch. I then cut out a piece using purple card stock, and the next to the last die in the Spellbinders Nestabilities set Star Circles, and adhered my embossed image to the middle, then with dimensional tape, I attached that piece to the left hand side of my card front. For my sentiment, I heat embossed with the same gold embossing powder, the words, Happy Halloween, cut the paper to size, then inked the edges with black ink, then adhered it to the bottom right side of my card front. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and as always, I would love to hear what you think about my card, so if you have the time, please leave me a comment.
