Happy Halloween

Well, it is officially fall and the month of October so Halloween is just around the corner.  Today I have for you a Halloween card.

When I design a card like this one, I like to make sure everything will fit in the space I am working with, so using the dies I layout the card first before I start cutting.

To make my card I start by cutting the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Landscape Die. This die cuts an image that is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" perfect for the front of a card.  Next I cut my picket fence, the one I used is also a Lawn Fawn die that I have had for awhile and is not available in the store. However, if you do a search for picket fence there are several options to choose from.  Here is a link to the search results.  Cheery Lynn dies has a picket fence die that looks identical to the one I uses.

Next I cut my two Memory Box stitched pumpkins  Finally, I die cut the Frantic Stamper Ghost dies and the Memory Box spiders.  For my sentiment I used the Memory Bo Halloween Channel die.

Once I havd everything cut I assembled the card following the layout I had tried at the beginning. Dies I  used in making this card.
