Spooky Halloween Slimline Card

Hi there! It’s Andrea back with you. I am SO ready for fall, cooler temps, and Halloween! I love making Halloween projects, and I hope this one inspires you.

    • Lessebo Pitch Black 100lb

I began by diecutting the graveyard border and the bats from Pitch Black and Giallo cardstocks, and the moon from Giallo cardstock. I backed the house on the black border with Giallo and then layered both borders together, offsetting them slightly to create a highlight. I layered the bats in the same way.

I trimmed white cardstock to 7” x 8.5” and scored it at 3.5” to create a slimline card base. I cut a 3.5” x 8.5” panel of Arancio cardstock and blended it with the following shades of Distress Oxides: Crackling Campfire, Ground Espresso, and Black Soot. Using the stencil, I added the jack-o-lantern face to the moon with Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide and inked the Edges with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide.

I adhered the ink-blended panel to my card base with double-sided adhesive and attached the layered border with foam tape. I affixed the moon and bats with liquid adhesive.

For my sentiment, I diecut the words from both Giallo and Black Diamond MirriSparkle papers. Again, I offset them slightly when I glued them together before adhering the phrase to my card. And now it's done!
