Halloween III

Hey ya'll, more Halloween cards here...this makes 20 of 'em in all. I will store these until "Operation Write Home" asks for them. Believe it or not I still have over 1/2 of each of the original 5- 12X12 design sheets I got off the clearance aisle that started this whole Halloween endeavor (the fuzzy green and purple dot papers were originally 1.99 but I got them for .21cents each, the others were .11cents -now if only I could find embellishments that cheap!! I'm going to just save the rest of these papers for now because I am burnt out on the orange, green, and purple color scheme...well, wouldn't you be?

Speaking of cheap's an idea...sequins. Here I used them to give a sparkly look to this paper - it really screamed for something but in an effort to make no two cards alike I had to search my craft bins for rarely used items and I really liked the way it turned out, of course the photo doesn't do justice to the bling of it but I think a soldiers wife or little girl would really like this.

Here I used an old OWH sketch for my layout and this is a Dustin Pike image with googly eyes added - I LOVE GOOGLY EYES especially for child appropriate cards. Their the ultimate 3D embellishment and "cheap". Also added a few buttons, this paper became a little harder to work with as it seemed to take over but I still managed to embellish it to within an inch of its life!
Here is the reverse of the other, I used this cuttlebug cutout on the corners and put a button in the center, this was my daughter's favorite card. The trick or treat words came in a stash of buttons of different sorts from hobby lobby.

The "spooky" words and bat came from a chipboard Halloween set which I copied onto plain white cardstock at 60% of original size -the pieces were too big for cards otherwise. The rest are pretty self-explanatory, thanks for stopping by!
