Scary Cute Halloween Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Scary Cute Halloween Card using Vampire Ellie by Paper Nest Dolls as my Design Team Inspiration Card.

The Details of My Card

For my card, I had so much fun colouring Vampire Ellie with my Copic markers! I knew that I wanted to give her black hair and decided to go with a ghoulish green and red since she is a vampire. I made her skin a bit lighter by not using E04 for my shadows to give her a deathly pallor. Lol!

For the balloons, I went with an ectoplasm green like in Ghostbusters and a black for the bat. I used my white gelly roll pen to make bat’s fangs stand out and for the highlights on both balloons. The balloons also had glossy accents add to them to make them look like real balloons. Star Dust Stickles were added to the red bows and red trim of her dress. 

I decided to create a mini slimline card since I wanted to create a spooky graveyard scene with my dies. Of course, if you have a vampire, you must have a moon dripping blood! Lol! So, I stamped the blood drips first before die cutting the moon out. That way the craters on the moon die did not cause voids in the stamped dripping blood. Next, I brushed Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink around the edges of my moon to make it glow.

Then, I die cut the graveyard in Basic Black and Basic Gray to help differentiate the two layers. Don’t you love how the spooky sky and moon show through the gate to the graveyard!

For the sky, I went with some spooky green skulls paper to match my colouring. Plus, they reminded me of all the ghosts in the graveyard.

A couple of black glimmer bats add some sparkle to the sky. The “Scary” sentiment was die cut from red glimmer paper to match my red colouring.

Finally, the finishing touch was a scattering of red rhinestones and black sequins to match my colour scheme.
