Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! For those of you that have kids and grand kids venturing out today, please be safe and remember to inspect all goodies. Isn't it wonderful that Halloween falls on a Friday this year? When my kids were young, I hated that Halloween fell on school nights as it was hard to get them home at a decent time for bed.

I have a "Punch Art" card for you today. I thought I would make a little red wagon hauling a pumpkin for today's Halloween card:

The Hardwood stamp was perfect for adding wood-grain to my handmade "sticks":

Here are the steps for creating:
  • Body: Real Red Cardstock cut with the Project Life Framelit Dies
  • Wheels: Basic Black cut with the 1" Circle Punch. Silver Foil cut with the 1/2" Circle Punch. Mini Brads for center. Add Stampin' Dimensionals to both layers.
  • Sides & Handle: Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock stamped with the Hardwood stamp and Baked Brown Sugar Ink. Use your Paper Cutter to cut strips about 3/8" wide. To create the pointy ends I used the Banner Punch. Add a small punched hole for the handle and tie a piece of Baker's Twine through the hole.
  • Cut 3 using the Large Oval Punch and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. Sponge all the edges if the ovals using a Sponge Dauber and Pumpkin Pie Ink. Glue and layer all 3 pieces. Glue behind the wagon. Add a few branches cut with Pear Pizzazz Cardstock and the Bird Punch. Snip the branches and glue to pumpkin and wagon. Add a bow with Baker's Twine to the pumpkin.
