Spooky Halloween Card with Sizzix

Posted by Andrea Shell on

Hi, crafty peeps! It's Andrea with you sharing my first (but definitely not my last!) Halloween project for the year! I had so much fun crafting this card with Sizzix's Moonlight and Halloween Night Die sets! They're the perfect mix of cute and spooky!

With the Halloween Night Dies, I first diecut the smaller silhouettes from black cardstock and the pumpkins from orange. To add the highlight to the silhouettes, I applied Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide to the edges. I blended the bottoms of the pumpkins with Black Soot before adhering them to the silhouettes. Using the Moonlight Dies, I diecut the large moon from two shades of yellow cardstock and the bats from black. To create some dimension, I blended the top moon layer with a combination of Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxides and blended the solid moon shape with Fossilized Amber. Again, I used Squeezed Lemonade to add a highlight to the bats.

For my background I started by blending with Squeezed Lemonade roughly where the moon was going to be. I then radiated outward with Wilted Violet, Villainous Potion, and Black Soot before adding spatters of water and white paint. For the ground I diecut white cardstock with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders Dies and blended with Peeled Paint and Black Soot. Once the background was dry, I attached it to a card with double-sided adhesive and popped up the ground with a strip of foam tape.

I adhered the moon to my background with liquid adhesive and attached the silhouettes with a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive. I affixed the bats to the moon with liquid adhesive. For a sentiment I heat-embossed a phrase from Honey Bee Stamps' Hocus Pocus stamp set and attached it with foam.
Have a great day!
