Card A Day Blog Post: Trick or Treat

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. It's time again for another Card A Day Blog post. This week's theme is Halloween. Here is the card that I conjured up for the occasion.

To make my card, I started with a 5.50" x 4.25" white card base. For my background paper, I chose the Halloween candy print paper from the K & Company 4.75" x 6.75" Halloween paper pad cut just slightly smaller than my card base. I then added a black piece of card stock cut to 3.75" x 5", that was embossed with the Cuttlebug swirl folder and my Cuttlebug. I then embossed the spider web corner stamp from the Inkadinkado clear stamps All Hallow's Eve stamps set with my versamark embossing pad, on black card stock using white embossing powder, cut it out, and adhered it to the corner of the black embossed piece using dimensional tape.

For my sentement, I used the Trick or Treat stamp from the same stamp set, and embossed it with black embossing powder, on a piece of purple card stock cut out with the Spellbinders Die set, labels eighteen, using the middle sized die. I inked the edges with black ink, then attacked it to my card using dimensional tape. 

To add a little more scary to my card, I added three little, more cute than spooky ghosts, from the Stickety-Doo-Da Halloween sticker set.

I hope you like my spooky little card, and would love to know what you think, so if you have the time, please leave me a comment.
