This is the first of the Halloween cards I will be positing this month.  A friend of mine came one day last week and we made 97 Halloween cards for the nursing home where my mother-in-law is residing and for the independent living center where my mother lives.   The cards are given for the staff to sign and hand out to the residents.

I made this sample card in advance but decided not to use the "Eeek" die cut on the 97 we made.  For the sample I had attached black card stock to "Stick It" before die cutting the word.  It was a little delicate even then to add to the card and it would have been dealing with 97 of them!  Instead we left them blank.  Later I did add a little sentiment on the ones for the 44 going to the independent living center.

 I made 97 owls and 97 branches using two Stampin' Up! punches.  And I die cut 97 "moons" and 97 bats using dies.

This entire card is Pumpkin Pie card stock.  When I decided to use this sample as the card we were going to do, I realized I wouldn't have enough to do 97 cards.  I cut what I did have into 4 pieces of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and ran each of them through the Cuttlebug with a spider web embossing folder.  The card base is white card stock.

I'm already working on pieces for the Thanksgiving cards we will make.  Thanks for coming by today!

This really is a CAS (Clean and Simple) card but I really do like it.  The papers are from Stampin' Up! and the butterfly is from t...
