One Last Halloween Card

#stampinup   I have time to share one last Halloween card before moving onto Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I'm really loving the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper, so this week's Global Design Challenge was a great chance to use some more of it!

The Global Design Challenge is new--this is only the 8th challenge. I'm always happy to find new challenge blogs for inspiration. The GDP design crew are some of the finest stampers in the WORLD! Check them out!

GDP Challenge #8 is to CASE a card. Normally, CASE means "copy and share everything," but for this challenge, CASE means "copy and selectively edit." In other words, use something about the elements of the card to inspire your card. I choose to use a modification of the layout so I could showcase the Happy Haunting DSP.

I started with a Tangelo Twist card base and added a Basic Black mat--you can't get any more Halloweeny than that! I cut two different sheets of Happy Haunting DSP--one is 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" and the other is 2" by 3-1/2". I backed each of these with a slightly larger Tangelo Twist mat. I adhered these pieces directly to the card.

Next, I stamped the "spooky" circle from the "Among the Branches" set in Tangelo Twist onto a Very Vanilla scrap and punched it out with the 2" Circle Punch. I punched a piece of Basic Black with the 2-3/8" Scallop Punch and then rotated the punched piece and punched it again with the same punch to get the spiky edges. Using a small sticky note helps align the already punched pieced. I adhered the spooky circle onto the spiky circle and then added this element to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

That's it! Quick and easy! It took me longer to choose which two pieces of DSP to use than to put the whole card together!
