Fright Night Card

Card stock base is black #110 weight card stock from Mikes. Stripe and chevron card stocks are from the stash. White is GP.

To make this card I cut and scored the black card stock base -- if you should want your tree die cut piece to hang off the left side of your card as mine does then cut the card stock base 5 1/2" x 8" and score down the center. This will give you room in your envelope for the tree pieces off the edge of your card. Once the black base is cut and scored set it aside.

For the front of the card I cut a piece of striped card stock approx 1/2" wide and put that onto the left card front using the ATG. Trimmed off the top and the bottom of the stripe card stock even to the card base. For the white piece I cut that 5 1/8" x 3 5/8". With that cut to size I used a spritzer tool and spritzed gray marker on the card front. Cut a piece of chevron card stock 3/4" x 3 1/2".

Using gray ink I sponged some ink onto the chevron piece. Then put that on the top of the white card stock using the ATG. Once that was on the card front I sponged the edges of the white card stock front using the gray ink. Stamped "Fright Night" on the lower right corner using Memento black ink. Put the white card front onto the black card stock base.

Using the Memory Box Grand Willow tree die I cut out a tree using black card stock. Using a glue pen I put the tree onto the card front with branches over the left side of the card. Using a bat punch from EK Success I punched bats out from black foil card stock. Put them on the card front using the glue pen:

For the ghosts I cut those out of white glitter card stock and put them on the card front using glue dots. Used a small oval punch and punched out three ovals from printed card stock for the pumpkin. Sponged the edges of those and put them together as a pumpkin using mini glue dots. Here is a photo to show the sparkle of the ghosts:

If you do not want your tree to hang off the left side front of your card then cut your card stock base as usual and the tree will fit your card stock base. TFL and YOLO
