Another Halloween Card this time with a Mo Manning Digi Stamp

Im struggling to create all the Halloween cards I need for my nine grandchildren, Ive still got about five to do, I just hope that I manage to get them done in time as at the moment what with my swimming (which is leaving me shattered) and so many other jobs that need doing Im rather getting behind with my creating and my blogging, sorry girls if I havent been by for a couple of days.

Anyway heres another Halloween card made this time with one of the lovely Mo Manning Digi stamps, I have decided to use this one and another for the two little grandchildren we have as I felt they were more appropriate for them. Ive printed out the design and coloured it with my copic pens, then used one of my Nestabilitie Label dies to cut it out, after which I have drawn around the edge on a piece of orange card to create a larger one for mounting it on, I used foam tape for this. At the moment I dont have any halloween sentiment stamps so Ive printed out a greeting instead from my computer and mounted this also onto a piece of orange card.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and for the first layer Ive used black card and layered up one of three papers that Ive used again from Donna's Halloween designs, this one is mauve with a lot of sculls, black cats, greetings and bats on, then for the second layer Ive used a black and orange patchwork design and my pumpkin border punch by Martha Stewart along both the edges before sticking it to the base layer. The third layer is yet the same pattern as the first layer but in a orange colour instead, this one has been stuck to a piece of orange card and then Ive stuck a piece of red jute ribbon around it before sticking it to the base card across the centre of the last layer.

After which I have stuck my mounted image in the centre, and my greeting has been stuck to the bottom on the right hand side.
