"HALLOWEEN" CARD - #'s 2-5


Last year after Halloween, I was in Michael's and they had a 50% off sale on stickers.  I picked up 5 sheets of these and 5 sheets of another design that will be used for Thanksgiving cards.  Although the pumpkins aren't really a Jack-O-Lantern, they make a nice design for Fall.


First the card base was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  While I was doing that, my friends were attaching the stickers to pre-cut white card stock pieces and then matting them on the orange pieces.


There were a number of stickers on the sheets so we tried to arrange them to get "the most for our buck".   The #4 card actually has 3 stickers do cards #2 & #3.


This was a single sticker that had to be added to the card after everything else was in place. There are other cards that are designed similarly from a variety of these stickers.  A total of 53 cards were made from these designs and will be donated to the staff at the care center where my 97 year old mother-in-law lives.

We had a lot of fun working on these cards Tuesday!  I had pre-cut the card bases and other items for the cards and we managed to have all 44 of yesterday's cards and 53 of these completed in just under 3 hours.  And we still manage to get some great conversations during all of it.

Thank you for coming by today!
