There's just something about Halloween that makes me so happy to create! I love that it can be cute, quirky, scary or all of the above. For me, Halloween is just a fun time to get crafty. And I think I must have caught the vintage bug, because I think this card is looking a little vintage-y, don't you think? The background paper was so great, I only added a few touches; the Halloween postmark in the bottom left hand corner and a few grungy flourishes around the edges. The bats I created using my Silhouette digital cutter. I simply cut out various different sizes, ran them through my Xyron machine and added black glitter. I made extras to have on hand for later. I create some other fun shapes, too. I think I'll be making more embellishments with my Silhouette very soon! I also love the little tag on this card. It's simple enough, but I think the vertical orientation is a little different. And rather than a sentiment, I added the date using the month stamp from the Date Me set and the year from the Holiday Postmark set:
And there you have a simple (but spooky!) Halloween card. It might seem early, but I'm really ready for Fall! I love all the things that come with the season, including decorating and crafting! I like to think of it as preparation for the big crafting holiday...Christmas!
P.S. Raise your hand if you knew you could buy candy corn in August...!
