Happy Catoween


Hi everyone, gosh I can't believe we are into October already and Halloween shall be here very soon. So today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some Halloween inspiration. I so love making these fun cards with all these fab dies.

I started off with an 8" X 5" card and matted and layered cardstock which I tattered at the edges. For my background I used inks and a web stencil to get a spooky effect, layering up my spiders web with foam strips.


My main cat I added the witches hat to, layering on the belt and buckle twice for added texture. I used the reverse side of my smaller cat on the left hand side of my card to give a mirror image. You don't tend to notice as much you have used the reverse side in black cardstock when you want your die cut facing the other way.


Frankenstein was cut out in several colours layering him up and highlighting his face and clothes with a Fine Liner pen.


My Skeleton I shadowed with black cardstock to help him pop.

I do hope you have enjoyed my post and feel inspired to make a Halloween Card. Thanks so much for stopping by today and good luck to everyone entering the Bi-Weekly Challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.

  8. Smashingly awesome sauce card! The layers of the dies create such wonderful contrast. It looks like a 3D design. Frankenstein is my favorite part and the mirror image of the cats. Howlingly fantabulous! Hugz. ~Niki
