My First Halloween Card

Well its certainly been a busy morning, Ive just finished mowing the grass and Im absolutely shattered, anyway I thought it was time I posted a card, and Ive chosen two of the new Halloween Pink Gem Designs from Janet Roberts, the little lad is called Devil Max and Ive also given him Witchy Cat, and I felt it was a good combination for one of my grandsons.

Ive stamped them out onto white card and coloured them with my Copic Pens, after which Ive cut them out with my rotatrim and with some dark blue inkpad distressed it around the edge. After which Ive mounted him onto a piece of dark blue pearlescent card. I then printed a greeting from my computer and done a similar mounting with this.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a piece of extra dark blue pearlescent card and one of three Halloween papers from Nitwit Downloads, the first one is a text one, and the second layer is a bat paper and with this and the third paper a star paper Ive used the Bat border punch along the edges, these two were stuck across the centre and down the middle of the base layer.

Ive then stuck my mounted image onto the centre panel, and the greeting below on the right hand side at the bottom. To finish of I have stuck some star gems down the either side on the bat paper panel.
