The Spooky Season

Hello Crafty Friends! Happy Halloween! It's Laurie here! I am sharing The Spooky Season using Scary Doll Owen and Scary Doll Emma by Paper Nest Dolls as my Design Team Inspiration Card. I couldn’t resist squeaking in one final Halloween card!

The Details of My Card

For my card, I had to do some research! I’m not a big horror fan. So, I had to google what these characters were and colour them according to the photos online. Lol! I used my Copic markers to colour them and added Glossy Accents to the shovel and the knife. Also, I added silver gelly roll pen to all the metallic trim on Emma’s jacket.

Since I had two stamps to place on my card, I decided to create a slimline card, but I thought it would be fun to use the tag “Tis the Season to be Spooky”. So, I brushed Black Soot along the edges to give it a distressed feel. Next, I added a black mat to the tag and rubbed Brushed Iron wax on the mat, the die cut gates, and the mat of my card to tie them all in together. Once I did that, I placed my sentiment sticking above the card with an iron gate on either side of it with my characters layered in front.

I love the oval dies that I used for the black mat and the Skull and cross bone paper! Such a fun and interesting shape!

For embellishments, I used several bats and black rhinestone stickers, as well as a spider trinket that I placed over the printed spider on the tag. The only other thing that I added was the reverse “Scary” word to the tag. It summed up my card perfectly!
