Our theme for our Saturday Blog Hop today is Halloween Boo and creating a spooky & scary projects. When I saw the word "B-O-O" in our theme, I immediately thought of the Boo To You Framelits Dies. I remembered that they were in the Clearance Rack and not retired yet.....perfect!

And I did something a little different too. I used Watermelon Wonder Cardstock instead of an orangey color. I really like how the color pops against the black and gray.  I even colored my witch hat with Clear Wink Of Stella. Look how sparkly it shows up against the black:

Card Directions:
  • Card Base: Watermelon Wonder Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at 5-1/2" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Basic Gray Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Emboss using the Confetti Embossing Folder. Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Halloween Night Designer Paper cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies that measure 2-1/2" across. Glue to the center of oval in the embossed layer.
  • Layer #4: Cut (1) witches hat using Basic Black Cardstock (keep the star) and the Boo To You Framelits Dies. Color the hat with Clear Wink Of Stella and glue to the oval using Stampin' Dimensionals. Cut (2) more stars and glue them on around the witches hat. Add a Rhinestone Jewel to each star.
  • Sentiment: Cut out the B-O-O sentiment using Watermelon Wonder Cardstock  and glue to card front using skinny slivers of Stampin' Dimensionals.
