Halloween Greeting Cards
Created by: Yvonne Busdeker
Halloween is almost here! To tie in with our upcoming party and house decorations, I created some fun Halloween cards for the kids to give to teachers. We are going all out with Halloween this year. I've been creating pop up cards lately just to give my greeting cards that extra spark and fun.
Enjoy this fun card, and have a wonderful Halloween!
Supplies from The Paper Mill Store .com:
- Colorbox Cats Eye Fluid Chalk
- Zig Pen, Brown and Black
- Fiskar Scissors
- Straight Edge
- Cut out your desired shape using Cascata Tobacco and ink the edges with fluid chalk ink. My shapes were free drawn. You can create your own or use clipart
- Score and fold tobacco cardstock in half. Using a straight edge and ruler you'll need to slice two 2" lines perpendicular to the fold line. Center the cut lines so that there is 1" on either side of the fold. The two sliced lines can be about 1/2" apart from each other. You can then fold the card to make the necessary crease lines for the small pop up paper.
- I adhered the cut / inked shapes to ColorMates Black Denim cardstock. Trim the black cardstock leaving about 1/2" matting.
- Add stamped edge, rub ons or hand drawn scroll work to the edge of each card. I added my hand drawn scroll work to the edge of the tobacco cardstock.
- Repeat above steps for as many cards as you want to create.I created a 4 card set.
- Next, choose the icons to adhere to the pop up. First, I selected a ghost. I hand drew my ghost, cut him out, and adhered him to the front of the pop up section as shown.
- Next, write your desired message on the card.
You can either hand draw your pop up images or download clip art from the Internet. Each of mine was hand drawn and I'm NOT the best person at drawing, but when you add that art spin it looks cute! Trust your talents!
For the pumpkin I "carved" the eyes and mouth out and mounted on black cardstock to give it some dimension and pop.
For the "BOO," I cut out the letters then removed the center of the "B" as well as the "O"s and mounted on black cardstock.The last icon is the witch hat. This was hand drawn in two parts on black cardstock. I separated the rim of the hat and the upper portion. Once each of the two sections was cut out, I matted them on the tobacco cardstock. I then adhered the rim of the hat to the top of the hat and inked the edges in black. Once assembled, I adhered it to the pop up portion of the card.
