Happy Halloween!

Hope your weekend went well. Maybe you had a chance to go to a Halloween party?

My kids are celebrating Halloween on Tuesday, and I had an important task to do: My daughter wanted to give her friends Halloween cards on the party night, and I had promised to make her a few. The main images I had die-cut already a while back, so yesterday I put the elements together and finished the cards.

Here's how they turned out:

Isn't that Halloween die set ('Sizzix Thinlits: Spooky') cute! I loved playing with the paper dolls; that versatile design is so inspirational! I even used the same doll for a bit different card theme; I will show you the girly birthday card in another post soon.

The yellow oval in the background is die-cut from a sheet of white paper I had painted with spray mists. Having a quite solid color behind the main images allowed me to use a patterned paper underneath; a solid color balanced the look and the card did not appear too busy.

The black fence is die-cut using a Sizzix / Tim Holtz border die from a few years back.

I think she liked the cards, and I'm hoping her friends will like them, too!

Wishing you a nice new week!
