That being said -- here are a few details about the card I made:
|We'll leave the light on for ya!|
I used the Haunted Halloween Cuttlebug embossing folder on black Coredinations cardstock (CS) and used a flat sanding block to bring out the white core. With my Cricut I cut out the moon, bat, & pumpkins from the Holiday Cakes cartridge...all at 1". I used my Cuttlebug again to emboss the lines in the pumpkins with the Candy Cane Stripe embossing folder, and used Copic Spica markers to color the stems & lines of the pumpkins. Martha Stewart's vintage leaf glitter was used to mostly highlight the moon, leaving just a bit of the yellow showing through, and also for the leaf piles & vines for the pumpkins. I finished with a rhinestone for the "light" and added gold pen light rays.
TIP: To help bring the images together when the card looks incomplete, a great "filler" is to add a faux frame. To frame the card, I used a score board to score lines 1/4" in from each edge of the black CS, then lightly sanded over the edges of the raised lines. Finally adhere to card base to complete the card.
Don't forget to leave your lights on. ~ Lisa
