Hi friends! Today, I have a fun Halloween card featuring Little Haunters. I created a fun slimline card with these cuties, trick-or-treating through a not so spooky graveyard, haha!
To begin, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, added details with a white gel pen, and die cut images from the following sets:
Little Haunters/ Coordinating Dies and Frightful Little Bits/ Coordinating Dies
Next, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 3 1/2 X 8 1/2″ and ink blended it with Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks. I then splattered the background with watered down black and white acrylic inks to create some interest. I embossed some stars from Little Haunters with white embossing powder to complete my background. Next, I used the Ocean Waves Scene Horizontal Die to cut black cardstock to create the frame and path. First, I attached the frame to my inked background, then added the two bottom waves to create a pathway for the critters. Next, I cut the trees and tombstones from black cardstock using the Spooky Scene Die and attached to complete the graveyard silhouette scene.
Next, I cut a circle to create the moon, gave it a wash of watered down Smokey Shadow Distress Oxide ink, and tucked it behind the tree branch. I then attached all the colored images to my card, using foam tape on some for dimension. I used a thin black Sharpie to draw a line for the spider to hang from, and stamped my sentiment in black ink. To complete my card, I attached my finished card front to a 3 1/2 X 8 1/2″ white card base.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Halloween and happy crafting!! See you next time!
