Toxic Treats Halloween Card

Ouch, it's been six weeks since I posted last. Time to do something about that! Here is a cute Halloween card for you. 

               Stamps: Toxic Treats
               Paper: Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Wicked Fun DSP, Champagne Glimmer 
               Ink: Black Stazon
               Accessories: Adorning Accents Edgelits, 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon, Labels Collection 
                       Framelits, Dimensionals, Self Adhesive Rhinestones, Sharpie marker
               Techniques: Coloring Rhinestones

This card is inspired by one that I saw on display and photographed. Unfortunately, I don't know who designed the original and I couldn't find it anywhere on the internet, so I don't know who to credit for my inspiration. The original stamper had used this image and the negative cutout (i.e. the left over pieces) from these dies to create a framed image. I used that I idea and just changed up colors, designer paper and embellishments a bit. 

Here's the how to: The base is Basic Black card stock. I used a strip of designer paper from the Wicked Fun pack (retired but currently on the Clearance Rack) and a strip on Champagne color Glimmer Paper. I cut the glimmer paper with the Adorning Accents Edgelits. Then I added a strip of the Basic Gray and Black 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon. I used the Labels Collection Framelits to make the frame for the image. (The black frame is 3-1/4" x 3-3/4" cut with the 3rd largest framelit and the Cajun Craze frame is 3" x 3-1/2" cut with the 2nd largest frame.) Then I stamped the image on a 3" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock using Black Stazon ink. You don't have to cut out the white piece. Just attach the Cajun Craze frame to the White card stock with four dimensionals (one in each corner), and then using four more dimensionals attach the Black frame to the Cajun Craze piece. Then glue the image panel to your card front. As a finishing touch, I used a brown Sharpie to color some self adhesive Basic Jewels rhinestones and added those to the image. The brown sharpie gives a color that is a great match for Cajun Craze card stock. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today, I hope you enjoyed this Halloween card!
