Hello Crafty Friends!! Soon Halloween will be upon us!! I love Halloween and not just because I was born the eve of this fabulous holiday but because ... hmmm, wait... no, that pretty much sums it up! LOL
It all started because my mom tried her hardest not to have a Halloween baby. I was already two weeks late and not budging. Well, she went for a walk one day and lo and behold labor pains began. Really not the best or safest way to get me out and I really don't recommend it to anyone! In fact women who are overdue really should seek advice from a their doctor. But there I was brand spanking new the day before Halloween!
I love the fact my birthday is very much associated with a holiday. Hardly anyone forgets my birthday and if they do it's usually just a day off. LOL
But beside the extremely close birth date I love the fact that Halloween brings out the creative nd mysterious part of people. The costumes are always the rage! Bought or made, I love seeing them all. Or forget the costume all together and wear make-up... still... LOVE IT!!
Why wouldn't anyone want to embrace and celebrate it?!
So, I too embrace this holiday through creativity.
Here's a card I made that represents my favorite Halloween pass time... Trick-or-treating.
For this card I used Pink & Main's Smell My Feet Stamp Set. I love this stamp set. That frog just kills me hanging on the candy bucket!
For the card base I use Grafix's Craft Plastic heavy weight sheet in .20" thickness.
I cut the sheet into a 5.5"x 11" piece and folded it to make an A2(4.25"x5.5") sized card.
Then I embossed the front flap of my card with an embossing folder.
The embossing folder used came from the We R Memory Keepers Butterfly set.
I hid my inside panel by layering it directly under my front panel.
And, there you have it... something a little different... but it works!! And, I love it!
Try making your very own "see-thru" card... you might love it too!!
