Halloween Greetings
by Donna Sledzik

Hello everyone!

Today I took a break from Christmas cards to bring you a Halloween project!  I did use one of the new holiday dies, Pine Wreath, for a Halloween wreath. It's fun to look for versatility in your stamps and dies.


I also used washi tape to create my background in keeping with our September's Tape Challenge.  

I die cut the Circle Web Frame in the center of a piece of watercolor paper, and masked off the web and added washi tape across my card to create stripes.


I used a flat watercolor brush and paint to fill in the stripes.  Once the paint was dry I slowly peeled off the washi tape.  If your tape seems to be hard to lift off, use your heat gun to warm the adhesive on the tape and peel off.

I sponged white cardstock with Twisted Citron Distress ink to create the background behind the web.  I glued that behind the web and adhered this to a black cardstock background piece, which I glued to a white card base. 

I die cut the pine wreath several times from black cardstock and glued them around my circle web.

To finish the card I die cut the word greetings from black cardstock and glued that to the card front.  Then I added a spider and orange bling to further embellish the card.

I hope you have a great weekend!
