This easy Halloween card is inspired by a Make and Take at Making Memories, a local craft store. The Make and Take item was a black, gray and silver wedding card. I thought the style would work well for a Halloween card, so this is what I came up with.
The card requires black card stock and four different patterns of Hallowe’en themed scrapbook paper. I used the double sided kind which gave me four patterns.
For embellishments, I used a black ribbon, an orange button, a stamped sentiment and a heat embossed stamped image.
If you haven’t tried heat embossing, you might want to take a look at my video demo of heat embossing. This technique requires a Embossing Heat Tool or heat gun. (And no, a hair dryer will not work. We have all tried that at one time or another. It just isn’t hot enough to melt the embossing powder.)
Here is my video demonstration showing how to make the Halloween card.
I think this easy Halloween card would be a suitable project for older kids to make, and its surely easy enough and fast enough for busy card makers to assemble in a short time.
