Another Spooky Halloween Card... Boo!

As promised, here's another fun and quick Halloween card to make! The contrasting textures of the Twill Stickers and the Chipboard pieces give this card lots of dimension. Perfect to send a little spook to your friends or family this season!

P-0179 Bats Paper
STFT-0018 Halloween Canvas Quotes
ST-2180EZ Pumpkins 2" StickyPix
STCX-0098 Trick or Treat Cardstock Sticker
RUB-0402 Cracked Up Rob-Ons - 1/2" - White

Black Cardstock
Orange Ribbon
Chipboard Brackets
(we used our extra purple brackets from DCCB-0010 Paris Chipboard)

  1. Trim black cardstock to 5.5 x 11" and fold in half to make card base (5.5" square).
  2. Cut a 5.5" square piece of the Bats Paper and mount the front of the card.
  3. Remove the large, square pumpkins sticker from the Canvas Quotes sheet and fray the edges slightly with scissors or a craft knife. Adhere to the upper left of the card at a slight angle.
  4. Adhere the long black cats sticker from the Canvas Quotes along the bottom of the card, about 1/4" from the bottom and centered.
  5. Place the skull sticker from the Trick or Treat cardstock at the bottom right corner of the pumpkins twill.
  6. Adhere chipboard brackets to either side of the black cats twill sticker, lining up the bottom of the chipboard piece to the bottom of the twill sticker.
  7. Spell out BOOoo! with Cracked Up rub-ons to title your card, and add a Jack O' Lanterns sticker to the upper right corner of the card as an accent. Finish off by tying orange ribbon around the hinge of the card, tying extra bits of ribbon around the knot for a spooky touch!
