Trick or Treat

This is the card I made for my monthly card swap. I first printed trick or treat on an 8 1/2 x 11 paper, using the 2Peas Goofball font. The monster and ghost are cut using the Paper Doll Dress Up, and inked. I cut a shadow for the monter and ghost, inked with black ink, used pop up dots behind them, and put wiggle eyes on each one.

I embossed the orange cardstock with the Fiskars Webbing in my Cuttlebug, and then used silver glitter glue to highlight the web. The black edging is made using the George Cartridge. I wrapped the apricot bias tape around this and tied a knot on the left hand side.

I used 2Peas Goofball font to make the Trick or Treat saying, and cut a set of blank labels, then lined up my saying over the labels to get the right spacing, then cut with my Cricut. The cut file has six labels to cut at one time.

For the inside of the card I cut a white mat and covered with an orange border.

I stamped Trick or Treat on the front of the envelope and stamped the bat on the envelope flap in black ink.
