10 Days of Halloween Projects Day #7!

I brought back an old favorite today for my Day #7 of 10 Days Of Halloween Projects. I used the tree image from the Sheltering Tree stamp set. How perfect to join my ghosts for a Halloween card!

Here are the steps for today's card:
  • Card Base: Early Espresso Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".  Use the Project Life Corner Punch to cut all 4 corners.
  • Layer #2: Serene Scenery Designer Paper 5" x 3-3/4". Use the Project Life Corner Punch to cut all 4 corners. Cut off 1-1/4" from the bottom of the paper and flip it over. Glue both pieces to card base. Stamp the tree image using Early Espresso Ink.
  • Ghosts: Stamp 2 ghosts using Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and hand-cut. Glue to the tree using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Sentiment: Using an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker, color one letter at a time in the word "POP" to create the B-O-O. Stamp the "P" twice to create a "B". Cut the letters into rectangles individually and glue to the right of the tree.
  • Bling: Add a piece of the Orange Sequin Tree from one of our Paper Pumpkin Kits where the designer papers meet.

Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Sheltering tree, Sweet Home, Ready To Pop
  • Inks: Early Espresso
  • Cardstock: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Delightful Dijon
  • DSP: Serene Scenery
  • Tools: Project Life Corner Punch
  • Accessories: Orange Sequin Trim (past Paper Pumpkin Kit)
