Halloween Fun

I loved this cute canopy idea that Tammy did a few weeks ago, so I thought I would try it with this Halloween card I was making for my Great-Grand children. I now have enough made to send to them.

First, I cut the canopy and scalloped it with Fiscars Treading Water Punch and then I scored it with my Scor-Pal (for sale this week) to make a crease so it would fold nicely. I cut out the striped paper for the bottom, the black side strips. I stamped the images and used the square Nesties to cut it out. Then I cut a black mat for accent color. I stamped the Happy Halloween and used the Nesties large oval to cut and emboss it. Black ric-rac separates the image and the striped bottom. This was a fun card to make and I love trying new things.
