Hi stampers, this cute card, is one I will be doing at my Stampin' Up! bunco night. I got the layout from Dawn, she has great ideas. The base of the card is basic black cs, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and very vanilla cs 4" x 5 1/4". Then you need pumpkin pie cs 4"x 3 1/2", perfect plum cs 3 1/4"x 3 3/4", very vanilla cs 2 3/4"x 2 3/4". Designer series paper Cast-A-Spell (#115677 pg. 164) 2 pieces 1/2"x 4", 1 perfect plum and 1 pumpkin pie scallop circle punch (#109043 pg. 187), I used the Scary Skeleton stamp set (#113244 pg. 24), and the Holiday Best level 1 set (pg, 13), and for the little boo on the inside of the card I used the Calendar Alphabet & Numbers set(#111610 pg. 151). I used the Ticket corner punch (#107214 pg. 186) on the very vanilla piece on the front of the card, and the ribbon it 1/4" grosgrain ribbon Elegant eggplant. Take the pumpkin pie piece and score it at 1/2" on the 4" side, and the perfect plum piece, score it at 1/2" on the 3 1/4" side. Add adhesive to the 1/2" flap of the pumpkin pie and put it under the left side of the very vanilla base piece, then add adhesive to the perfect plum piece and put is under the right side of the base piece. Use the bone folder to help the pieces to lay flat. Stamp your Skeleton and saying to your 2 3/4" piece of very vanilla, and adhere to the perfect plum. Stamp the bat on a scrap of very vanilla and cut it out, then adhere it to the 1 3/8" circle punch(#104401 pg. 186) piece of very vanilla cs, adhere that to the pp scallop circle, stamp the saying from the holiday best set. Then stamp the cat and the boo to a 1" circle punch (#109046 pg.186) adhere it to a 1 3/8" circle of pp and adhere that to the pumpkin pie scallop circle, and place it on the inside of the card. Ad your DSP pieces to the top and bottom of the very vanilla base, tie the ribbon around the pumpkin pie piece and adhere card to the basic black base. If you have any questions, please let me know.
