Halloween cards just may be my favorite cards to make. I love using non-traditional colors and for this year's, I went with a brilliant royal blue as a color accent to go with shiny silver and gold.
- Black 110lb Cardstock (Recollections,Michaels)
- Metallic Blue,Silver,Gold Cardstock (Recollections,Michaels)
- Foiled Halloween Scrapbook Paper (Spook Hill, Michaels)
- Layered SVGs (Bat is from Creative Fabrica Moon is Cricut Design Space)
- Digital Cutting Machine
- Adhesive Tape Runner
- Coordinating Sequins
- Self-adhesive Rhinestones
- Dimensional Glue (Glossy Accents, Ranger)
I selected the foiled skull and stars papers from the Spook Hill stack I had from last year. When I'm making multiples, I like to have my cards and panels all cut ahead of time, as well as any images I'm using. That way when it's time to assemble, I'm just focused on that.
Card Size: 5x7 so cut 7x10 and score in the middle.
Blue Panel: 4.75x6.75
Foiled Papers: 4x6
After deciding on my images, I brought into Cricut Design Space and then cut everything out.
The Bat SVG comes with four layers but I went with three. Black base, white middle, gold top. For the moon, I used the offset option in Cricut Design Space to create the gold layer and cut the image from silver paper.
I used spray adhesive to attach the Bat layers and then foam dots to attach the silver layer to the gold layer for the moons.
I assembled the cards as shown and then used double-sided tape to attach the moon and foam tape to attach the bat. To finish, I used bright gold sequins and clear rhinestones to decorate the moon and bat.
The blue reminds me of the night sky!
