Eat, Drink, and Be Scary

I don’t usually make many Halloween projects, but as soon as I saw the new All Hallows Eve paper collection from Paper Phenomenon, I had to have it. It is probably the best Halloween paper collection I’ve ever seen. The printed 12×12″ collection is available for pre-order now on her website for 20% off, but I purchased the digital paper collection (which is currently 50% off!) and was able to download it right away. These papers are so beautiful, you really don’t have to do too much, so you can create some very quick & easy cards.

One of the beauties of digital paper is the ability to scale them down. I loved the paper I used for the focal panel on this card, but it would have been too large to use on a card in the 12×12″ format. So, I scaled it to 50% when I printed it which gave me a 6×6″ piece which is perfect for a card!

After I printed the two papers, I trimmed them down down. I trimmed the focal panel to 3-1/2 x 4-3/4″ and the background panel to 4 x 5-1/4″. I used a mini ink blending tool and added Black Soot Distress Oxide ink around all the edges of both panels.

Since the focal panel paper already had a lot going on, all I did was stamp a sentiment on it. For that, I used the Eat, Drink, and Be Scary sentiment from an older Winnie & Walter stamp set called Moonlight. It’s one of my all-time favorite Halloween-themed stamp sets, so I was thrilled to pair it with my new all-time favorite Halloween-themed paper! I stamped the sentiment directly on the patterned paper using Amalgam Black ink from Gina K. Designs.

To assemble the card, I matted the focal panel on a piece of black card stock cut to 3-5/8 x 4-7/8″. I created a top-folding card base from the same black cardstock and adhered the background panel directly to the card front using liquid glue. I adhered the matted focal panel to the background using foam tape. For a bit a bling, I added three black sequins around the sentiment and that completed the card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you enjoyed the project I’ve shared. Until next time …
