I love to spoil my grandchildren every holiday by sending them a box of inexpensive treats. For Halloween, I send them mostly healthier treats, with a little bit of candy, plus a hand made card. I like to keep the cards either "Halloween Cute" or "Fall-themed".
These cute Halloween images are pretty old. I just love them, they are so adorable! I think they are by Inkadinkado if you're lucky enough to find the stamps on-line still. If you can't, shoot me an email and if you live in the states I'd be happy to stamp some images off on card stock for you and send them your way.
To make the cute Halloween cards I stamped both the dog and cat images on a separate piece of card stock , colored them in, and cut them out. With the dog card, I even stamped the image a second time so I could just cut the pumpkin out and pop it up on dimensionals giving it a 3D look.
I chose the star designer paper for the background because of the stars in the dog's hat. Then I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Kraft card stock, punched some holes in the end to add some eyelets and purple ribbon, and finally, I stamped some stars onto white card stock, colored, fussy cut them out, and glued those onto the Kraft card panel. The card base is also Kraft paper. The puppy is popped up on dimensionals.
For the kitty card, I used the same technique as the puppy card: coloring, cutting out, and popping up the image with dimensionals. The two outer pumpkins are also separately cut and popped up for extra dimension.
With this card I used my sewing machine to create a zig-zag edge around the entire card, and then I sewed another piece of candy designer paper on top. The sentiment was stamped in white craft ink onto black card stock and popped up.
To finish the card, I wrapped a big rusty bow around the designer paper and adhered the whole thing to a Kraft base.
Finally, I wanted to show you a couple of tags I attached to their presents. The pumpkin was cut using a Cuttlebug die and machine. I made "grass" by just handcuffing some green paper and then sponging green ink on it. The tag was cut on blue card stock using a Spellbinder's Nestability die, then sponged with blue ink. I hand wrote their names on the tags.
So what about you? Do you give your children or grandchildren special treats or presents for Halloween? I'd love to hear from you!
Have A Great Day! Amy
