Halloween cards are another matter. I love making and sending them almost as much as Christmas cards. And when there's a sketch challenge involved, it even gets better. Today's sketch comes from Dream Teamer Kim and my card, with artistic license, follows.
The Spider Web (LJ816) stencil is perfect for this background as it is easily cut into sections without diminishing the design. I paste embossed the stencil with Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP) on to orange card stock. For the pumpkins, I used the three pumpkins from right end of the Long Pumpkins (LL514) stencil. After taping the stencil to cream colored card stock, I added color with Tsukineko's Splendor inks. To balance the image, I repositioned the stencil so the leaves on the top left of the stencil were at the top of the left pumpkin so it looks like the leaves are growing right off the stem. I cut the image to size, inked the edges with a coordinating color and mounted it on black card stock. I added ribbon (artistic license), put it all together and there you have it. Done just in time to get it in the mail!
