I used an embossing folder and die combo called Halloween. It's a Disney set that I picked up at Big Lots a few months ago for just $2!
At first I wasn't quite sure how the die & folder combination works, but I finally figured it out.
I simply chose the color card stock that I wanted to use and I placed it over the part of the die that I wanted to cut. (This was a great opportunity to use of lots of my paper scraps).
After I had everything cut out I ran the pieces through the coordinating embossing folder. I did each piece separately; I just found it to work easier that way.
Once I pieces were cut and embossed I started assembling my card. For the bats, I used going grey card stock, but I colored the raised parts using my black SU marker. The raised parts of my owl were also colored using my lovely lilac marker.
I used the example on the front of the cuttlebug folder package as my inspiration. My card is a little bit different than from the example, I used a different color for the fence and I added the stars in the sky. I also didn't add any of the leaves that came with the die.
I'm hoping that the white dots I added in my background look like stars. I didn’t' add a sentiment on the front of my card because I felt it was busy enough and you sort of get that Halloween feel when you look at it, right...LOL
I'd better run, it's a cool day here today and I have chicken and dumplings cooking on the stove and I have to check on it. I'm trying a new recipe today so I'm hoping my family likes it. Just in case anyone wants to see the recipe I'm using you can find it here. It's supposed to be the Cracker Barrel chicken and dumpling recipe. Tomorrow I'll have to let you all know how it turns out!
