Time for some spooky fun at Cut it Up Challenge Blog! We were asked to make a Halloween project with a little spookiness to it. FUN!
I needed several Halloween cards. I kind of send them out like Christmas cards, because they’re such fun to make!! I have so many ideas and cute files and images, that I can’t stop at just one. My favorite size to make is 3 – 3.5 inch little square cards, so I made three with envelopes. Our sponsor this week is Trendy Twine. They gave us some awesome twine to work with. It’s called Orange Licorice, and I used it in three different ways. I love the bold color!
For the card on the left, I hand-stitched the outline of the cauldron. First, I used my piercing tool to make little holes; then I threaded a large-eyed needle and just sewed through.
I used the same threaded needle to make the horizontal line of the tie around this little Grim Reaper’s neck. Then I just tied a little bolo tie with a scrap.
The twine feature on the pumpkin card is easy to do. You just wrap the twine around three to five times, then take a scrap of twine and tie it around the middle, cinching it up nice and tight. You cover it with a decorative element.
All the cuts are from the Mini-Monsters Cricut cartridge. The stamps are from Pink By Design, A Haunting We Will Go.
