Welcome to the Stampin Friends Fall Blog Hop!
This month’s theme is Fall.
If you’re following along the hop, you’ve arrived from Melissa’s blog.
Don’t forget to continue on the hop with Ellen’s blog.
Be sure to continue all the way through.
You’ll have some lovely ideas for cards and projects for Fall Birthdays, Back to School and more!
So let’s jump right in.
I used the all new Mini Curvy Keepsakes box, which is great because you only have to cut it one time! I was actually able to get both my card and mini box from ONE 8 1/2″ by 11″ sheet of Mango Melody!
We have so many great Halloween and Fall sets in the new Holiday catalog it makes my heart smile. I just LOVE Halloween!!
I know this is a Fall themed hop but Fall = HALLOWEEN to me 🙂
With Memento ink, I added the Jack O’ Lantern face to the Mango Melody curvy box. Along with some new Green and White Double Stitched Ribbon to make it look like a stem, I finished it with some thankfully still around Black Glittered Organdy ribbon!
I created the card as a fun fold with the remainder of the Mango Melody card stock by scoring at 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
I added a few strips of all new Monster Bash DSP to make it fun. I have two pieces of different patterns which I think go well together. One 4 1/4″ by 2″ and one 4 1/4″ by 1/2″.
I layered the 1/2″ strip onto a 4″ by 5 1/4″ Whisper White panel for the inside of the card. I stamped my sentiment, webs, bats etc in a mix of Black and Mango Melody.
I also added a fun element to the front with the really fun Ornate Frames dies that coordinate with the suite. I inked the sentiment leaving off the “frame” and added it to give some extra punch!
There are also some really cool Enamel Shapes like: Ravens, Tombstones and Skulls that would make it creepy cool as well!
Until next time,
