Today I spent a little time helping Trevor make some notebooks for school and while his glue was drying I wiped up these cards.
For the flower card I drew a spiral onto a sheet of cardstock. I cut little petal shapes around the edges as I was cutting. I then inked the shape with distress inks (Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Chipped Sapphire). I wet the flowers thoroughly and did some shaping. I bended them, folded them, curled them...whatever suited me and dried with a heat gun. Then I hot glued them together. I used all scraps on this project. The edge was cut using a Tim Holtz Alterations Die. The Happy Bday stamp is by Fiskars.
This card was somewhat of a departure for me. I have never made a halloween card. I decided to "write" boo with wire and adhere it with wire to the card. I then fashioned a spider from velco leftovers and I wove ribbon onto wire for the legs. All paper is scrap paper and the edges are cut from the same Tim Holtz Alterations Die, I just used the other side of the die. I used Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire only on this card. This was a fun card!!!
