If the Shoe Fits Card

Card stock base is #110 weight black card stock from Mikes. Strip card stock is Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby and dotted print is from stash. Cut and scored the black card stock with the fold at the top of the card. Cut the striped card stock to the size I needed for the card front. Cut a piece of the dotted print one inch wide to fit on the striped piece. Put the dotted print onto the stripes piece using the ATG. Sponged the edges of this piece with black ink. Set these aside.

For the spider web I cut a piece of black card stock for the web. Stamped the Tim Holtz Halloween ticket stamp onto scrap white/GP card stock using black ink. Used scissors to cut this out. Sponged the edges of this with black ink. For the Witch Shoe I used a Die-Version die and cut this out of shiny black card stock that had Ken Oliver Stick It sheet on the back.. Used a rectangle frame die from MFTstamps for the Pumpkin Pie frame for the shoe. Cut a piece of lavender card stock to fit behind the die cut shoe. Used tear and tape and put the frame piece onto the lavender piece. Peeled the backing off the die cut shoe piece and put this in the frame.

For the small stars in the frame -- I placed an order with and they sent me a small trio star die and I used that die to cut out three stars using foil card stock in different colours. Put the stars in the frame using a glue pen. To finish the frame piece I added three black crystals from the stash to two different corners.

Used the ATG and put the striped card stock front onto the black card stock base. Used a glue pen and put the die cut spider web piece in the upper left corner of the card with the web hanging over the top and the left side of the card front. Used a dollar bug punch and punch out a bug from shiny black card stock and put that on the web using a mini glue dot:

Used the drippy goop border punch from M Stewart and punched out a strip of green glittered card stock. Cut this piece to the size I needed for the bottom of the frame piece. Put this on the frame using thin red sticky tape. Put the frame piece on a piece of black craft foam and put this onto the card front. This photo shows the dimension the craft foam gives the frame piece:

Here is a photo to show the stamped ticket piece:

Here is a better photo of the frame piece to show the shoe and the stars:

Fun card to put together using the Witch Shoe die and combining it with a spider web and Halloween ticket. This shoe die easily cut the shiny card stock that had the Stick It sheet on the back of it. TFL

You are the Queen of Halloween cards, my friend! I love this shoe die and the spider web is such a perfect balance!
