boo to you...

It's hard to get back to Halloween after making Christmas cards, but I have a Halloween card to share with you that was on the Lily Bee blog today.
I punched out two circles for the O's and used an Upper Script Alpha die for the B in boo. A heart cut from the Tiny Tags dies is layered over the boo also and hooked on with a little pin. The pin is tucked into the felt, so it doesn't poke the recipient!
Combining patterns on your card and layering a stamped image like I did here with the Persnickety chevron stamp really adds detail to a card! Setting the focal point at an angle also helps the card to be a little more unexpected and interesting. I used Lily Bee's Autumn Spice 6x6 Tiny Tablet, Lily Bee's Persnickety Clear Stamps, Lily Bee's Autumn Spice ABC Cardstock Stickers, a Canyon Clay ribbon, and a Soft Stone button.
What are you working on today? I can't believe Halloween is almost here. This fall is flying by! We're making a trip to the pumpkin patch tomorrow after school, since it's supposed to be a nice sunny day. Have a good one!
