Sweet Hauntings

My summer is officially over.  My son starts 2nd Grade today, and the Holiday Catalog kicks off on tomorrow.  Exciting stuff!

On Friday, I shared with you the Half Size Mini Treat Bag, and here's even more from the Happy Haunting product suite (Holiday Catalog pp. 46-47).  This Sweet Hauntings Card was a treat to make!  

I played with many of the patterned paper designs in the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper before I settled on this one with the adorable ghosts and spider webs (on the B-side).  

Since I wanted to use both sides of the designer series paper, I had to do two things:  
  1. Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4" x 5-1/4" for the base for the patterned paper.  
  2. Cut the piece of patterned paper to 4" x 5-1/4".  Then cut it about 3/4's of the way down (at 3-1/4" x 4").  
This way, I was able to piece all of the patterned paper together without guessing where to place it, AND it gave me a strong base from which to cut off the overhanging spider web doily.  I cut the doily with our Paper Snips, not the Stampin' Trimmer because it's so delicate.

I finished this card off with some of our delicious Iced Rhinestone Embellishments.  They're perfect on this card!

I hope you like this card and will make one of your own.  You will find all of the Stampin' Up! products used to create this card below.  Order what you need by placing your order in my Online Store anytime, or click any of the photos below to go right to that item.  Remember, you can start ordering from the Holiday Catalog on September 1st--tomorrow!
