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!
