A Little Holiday Sparkle

October 17, 2021

Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a fun take on a holiday card. Which holiday? Halloween of course! I know it’s not really a holiday but it should be. I simply love the colors and feel of Halloween with the cute images and the orange, purple and greens, my favorite colors.

I had a black panel on my desk that measures 3.50″ X 8.50″. It had already been stenciled and foiled so I decided to use it. If you do not have or use foil you could always use glitter or Shimmer Sheetz. Anything sparkly will work. This is a slimline card so the finished size is 4″X9″.

Most times I do not finish the inside of a card with stamps or die cuts but this time the occasion just called for a fun stamp on the inside as well as the outside. This stamp is from the Classic Christmas Special Kit but with all the shinny stars on this card the stamp was perfect. More shinny stars were added for some sparkly fun on the inside.

I used die sets that are both old and new cutting them all out of white Soft Finish Cardstock. Then all the pieces were colored with Copic Pens but if you don’t like to color, colored cardstock could be used or some simple ink blending could be done for a fabulous result. If you are a Copic user – I highly recommend the Soft Finish Cardstock, it blends beautifully. Although you will not see a purple, green or turquoise pumpkin in the pumpkin patch the added color is just right for this card.

All the elements were added to the front of the card and then the entire panel was added to a turquoise panel that measures 3.75″X8.75″. Happy Halloween from the Autumn Words set was stamped and heat embossed to finish off the front.

Thanks for joining me today and I will see you soon – until then – stay crafty,
