Hello friends. It’s been a few weeks since I posted a Halloween card so it’s time for some new ones. Here is one using only Lawn Fawn dies and stencils. It features the Lawn Fawn Spooky Forest Backdrop and Spooky Gate dies. It’s really easy to create fun or spooky dimensional cards with these dies.
For this card, I cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a piece of Lawn Fawn Spiffier Speckles 6×6 Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ for the background. I used the Lawn Fawn Nighttime Sky Stencil with Tim Holtz Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, and Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Ink.
Next I die cut the forest from Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Spooky Forest Backdrop 3x, the grass from Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow Cardstock (retired) with the Lawn Fawn Simple Grassy Hillsides and inked it with Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow Ink (retired), and the gate from Simon Says Stamp Slate 100lb Gray Cardstock with the Spooky Gate and inked it with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink to add some dimension. I die cut tombstones, ghosts, stones, and owl from Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and colored with Copic Markers. I used R20, C00, 0, & 110 for the ghosts; C3, C5, C9 & 110 for the owl; N1 & N4 for the tombstones; and W3 & W5 for the stones.
I finished off the card by adding some sparkle to the ghosts and the owl with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen.
On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment and ghosts from the Lawn Fawn Spooky Village Stampset with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink.
