Halloween Blues Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and  I’m excited to share a fun halloweeny project today with vintage images, layered patterned papers, and gorgeous Petaloo flowers.  I used non-traditional colors for the holiday inspired by the background color from the image.  Because why be normal?

That little boy is sweet and charming I could not resist creating a project with him. The tag in the background was inked and stamped and embossed with more traditional Halloween colors. Not too much of it is peeking out so as not to distract from the focal image.

The texture on these burlap flowers is amazing! I filled in a small arrangement here with some black burlap string to help fill in the space.

Another little arrangement for the top corner here with coordinating silk ribbon.

From this angle you can see them embossing a bit better. I used a flat black for the spider web and a clear gloss on the die cut frame.  I utilized a white doily to break of the focal images from the background which were all in a similar color tone and was looking a bit washed out.

A few embellies like the metal clip and buttons really wrap this card up and balances the large flowers.

  1. I didn’t think it would be possible to describe a card as both pretty and creepy at the same time! There is no such thing as too much Halloween!
