Haunted House Card


I created a Halloween based birthday card for a co-worker who loves Halloween. The card is made using a cascading fold which I learned to do here.

I used my silhouette cameo to cut all of the pieces. I attached the fence first and then started adding the bats and ghosts where I thought they looked good. I used acetate to hold them up so that they look like they are flying in the sky. The ghosts are made from clear vellum.
This is the card laying flat. The envelope had to be made pretty big to fit the whole card.

 The design and wording on the front was created with Silhouette Sketch Pens. I added a glittery black spider that I purchased from AC Moore.

The haunted house is attached to a tag that pulls out from the back. I stamped a simple happy birthday in the center.

Penguin Card


I realized one of my co-workers, that I don't see too often because she is a sub where I work, has a birthday on Saturday. She absolutely loves penguins so I decided to make her this card:
 I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the pieces for the penguin. I embossed the stomach of the penguin to give him a little texture. I then layered the pieces and attached them to a blue background with a strip of white card stock as the snow. I put a white border around the whole scene and used a snowflake punch for the snowflakes at the top. I used a small dot of silver Stickles in the center of each snowflake to give them a little POP!

I put a simple Happy Birthday on the inside on white paper and attached it to a black rectangle to help it stand out a little. I added a small red flower gem to the upper left hand corner.

I am entering these challenges with this card:
