Fast, Last Minute Halloween Card

Although I said you can you can use this card for any occasion, I meant the technique can be used for any occasion…Sorry…
I’m also sorry that I put this video up so late, but with Rich’s surgery being this morning, I’ve been spending a lot of my crafting time preparing to make sure everything around the house was ready for him to be out of commission for three weeks.
Below you’ll find the complete instructions and products used in the making of this video.
I started with a Hero Arts stamp and cut set called Witch Feet, and stamped the inside of a 8 1/2″ wide by 5 1/2″ tall card out of orange cardstock, scored on the 8 1/2″ length at 4 1/4″. I stamped the witches feet and sentiment inside the card with Brutus Monroe Detail Black ink link: and used clear embossing powder then heat set it. On the outside of the card, I used Brutus Monroe’s stamp set called Bite Me link: also stamped with the same detail black ink and used with clear embossing powder then heat set.. I colored it with Dick Blick’s Wink of Stella markers link: and cut the candy corn out.
I used an old Fiskars cobweb border punch that’s discontinued…I did find Martha Stewart has a similar punch available on ebay and here’s the link to it.
I used the border punch on a piece of black cardstock that is 5 1/2″ tall and about 3 1/4″ wide.

I took a piece of orange and black patterned paper and ripped the right edge of it so it is about 2 1/2″ wide and 5 1/2″ tall after being torn. I wrapped three thin pieces of satin black ribbon around the patterned paper near the top and adhered it on the back with tear tape.I glued the bite me candy corn vampire to the ribbon with foam tape. I glued fun foam behind the cobweb layer so it added dimension and then adhered these layers to the middle of the orange card base. I took cobweb stamps I found in the Witch Feet Hero Arts stamp set and stamped them on the back of the envelope and one on the bottom right corner of the front of the envelope.
