This is the first card that the South Burlington group made at our recent get-together. This one definitely took a while to make because there’s quite a lot of stamping and diecutting involved. I do really like how this card turned out and I think it’s worth the extra time for the spooky-ish elements. I think it’s actually mostly the color scheme that makes this a Halloween card – along with the sentiment and the spider. You could pretty easily change those elements and have a Christmas or seasonal wreath instead. Thankfully we had lots to talk about while our hands were creating, and the time seemed to move really quickly. Although it was noted that this card was more involved than what we’ve been doing lately. 🤷😄
This sketch may look familiar to you… I used the same one for the inspiration for the other card that the group made. Here’s the post where I described that card. I wanted to show the group that a card design can be used for lots of different purposes, and I hope that they will use this tidbit to look for inspiration in other cards that they see. I still love the diagonal element on this design and for this card I changed it up a bit by using ribbon on top of a background cardstock for that element.
I really like the Cottage Wreaths bundle, and add in the massive stack of Gingham Cottage patterned paper and the whole suite is a winner. What I really like about the suite is that it can be used for lots of seasons: Fall, Halloween, Christmas and more. You can check out the full suite here.
