French Flair Halloween Card
I will be so sad to see October leave as I love making Halloween cards. I started my card with a green panel cut from my Kaleidoscope Lace French Flair die. This is 6 1/8" square. Using spray adhesive, I glued it down to a piece of black card stock and then hand trimmed around the edge of the die cut. Using my French Flair Classic dies, I cut the dotted black panel. This adorable Kitty Witch is a new image from Karen's Doodles. I hand trimmed the image around the circle of the moon and then fussy cut around the cat and broom. I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Spiderweb behind the image to give it kind of a moon glow.
I finished the inside of the card with the same dies. Then using the new Expandable Quilling Strip die, I created the flower using text weight paper and a quilling tool. I created 5 orange petals, 3 green leaves and then 3 yellow coils for the center of the flower. The great thing about this kind of flower is how well it will go through the mail. Because it has such a low profile, it won't lose it's shape. This card will fit in a 6.5 inch envelope.
