You Put a Spell on Me!

So the we have had some very fall like weather the last couple of days. Cloudy, rain, wind, AND I saw some of the trees with their leaves changing color to those coral, red and orange colors so familiar with Fall. However, what type of card did I make? A Halloween card.

I found this cute circle card in the Silhouette store and of course I had to make it. The file cut as is makes a 5 1/2" round card. My base layer is the light gray, then I cut the scallop out of black, the circle out of the light gray and the top layer out of black. Once I had the card put together, it just screamed that it needed a little pizazz. So, I added some Firefly Stickles glitter to the bats eyes. Once that dried and then added some Glossy Accents to add some dimension to the eyes.

Next came the sentiment. I chose the "You put a spell on me" sentiment from the CardzTV stamp set "Trick or Treat". I stamped the sentiment in some tangerine ink on the gray paper. I used some Black Soot distress ink to ink around the edges of the sentiment after I rounded the corners. Next, to jazz it up a bit more, I used some Times Square Glimmer Glam and brushed it over the whole sentiment. The Glimmer Glam added some sparkle and shine but also helped the sentiment square look a little spookier and distressed. Finally to finish the card, I added some Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls to each of the big scallops.

I hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend! Come back and visit again.
