Easy Halloween Card 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.)

In the video demo below, I make the scores and cuts using a Fiskars Paper Trimmer. I also have a video demo of the Fiskars Portable Trimmer at this link.

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.
