Hi, Its Lisa back this week with a new and easy card to make for Halloween! I used only 2 pieces of plain cardstock too. I wanted to make something for this week's challenge "Things With Wings", I thought, why not bats! LOL I have seen a few tombstone shaped cards out there and I thought again...you don't need a special diecutting machine. All you need is a large circle diecut from Cheery Lynn Designs. I used the largest of the "Silver Stackers" I placed just part of the diecut on top of my paper and ran it partially through the diecutting machine to give it the top curve. I did that in black and once again in grey, .25 inches smaller each time. This card was originally cut at 5 x 6 inches, and now it is bit smaller, 5 x 5.75
I added "Home Sweet Home", "Spooky Tree", "The Raven" from "Tomb Stone" "Bat Family" in black cardstock. The the smallest circle from "Silver Stackers" for the moon and 2 "Ornamental Gate" (partially cut off the bottom) in white cardstock. Lastly, I added a small sentiment and fussy cut it out and placed with pop dots on top of the "Spooky Tree" I love how the "Spooky Tree" and the "Home Sweet Home" small tree compliment each other.
A closer view, NO patterned paper...only dotted embossed grey cardstock.
Easy and fast to make!
