Happy Halloween - Gift Card

Good Morning Crafty People,

How are we all today?

I am here sharing with you a quick Halloween card that I have made from the new range ALL HALLOWS.

Okay so we are not in October yet and Halloween seems so far away, but it will be here soon enough. 

My card today doubles up with a gift as well. 

I started with a standard a6 card blank. I used a white piece of card stock cut it down by a 1/4 inch and then used a orange ink pad to ink the edges to create an orange layer, the orange I had seemed to bright for a Halloween card, so I used Black Soot and lightly inked over the edge with the black soot to make it a bit darker. 

The next layer is again a white piece of card stock and I inked it using a dark purple ink bad, I used the black ink to stamp the "Danger Poison" stamp to create the background, one this had been done I again inked the edges with black soot to give it a slightly darker feel. 

I used two pieces of black velvet ribbon and crossed them over - to be honest I didn't pay that much attention to this as I wanted it to be slightly odd angles. 

The next layer is again a white card stock I stamped the Sentiment "Happy Halloween"
 I inked around it with the orange ink and then again ran around the edges with the black soot. I mounted this layer onto foam tap to give some dimension to the card.

Next I decided to create a gift card pocket on the inside. I used the same ink as the front and the same sentiment stamp as the front. I glued down the two sides and the bottom leaving the top open so money/gift card/treat could be popped into the pocket to give to the recipient. - The purple tag is just in there to give you the idea that it is a pocket.

This is a side view of the card, showing the depth of the front, and a peek of the inside. 

That is it for me for today, I really hope you like it, and don't forget to pop back tomorrow to see what Sue has on over for you, we would love to see your creations so please don't forget to pop on over to our Facebook group, or leave a comment in the comment box with a link to your project :)
