Eat, Drink & Be Scary
I love making fall and Halloween cards! When I saw the photo inspiration challenge over at the Papercraft Star site this week, I was immediately motivated to play along. How much fun is this photo? They plucked it from Martha Stewart Living magazine. If there is one thing to say about Ms. Martha, she knows how to throw a fabulous party, that's for sure.
I took different elements from the photo to add to my card, which could also very easily be turned into an invite to a Halloween bash. The circles on the Ghostly Greetings DSP (retired) reminded me of both the pumpkins and the polka dots on the tablecloth. Ooh, ooh, ooh, I see cupcakes on that table, too....YUM! That's where the addition of the striped DSP came in. Yup, I can always spot the treats, hee hee! I actually made Halloween cupcakes yesterday for my hubby to take to work today. I'm sure they were JUST as good as Martha's! ;)
I didn't plan to use the Kiwi Kiss (retired) color but the striped paper had that color in it, so I just went ahead and incorporated it. The Halloween definition is from the Eat, Drink & Be Scary (retired) set. I embossed it in white on the black card stock to make it pop a little more. The spiders are rub on's and although spiders are generally really creepy, these guys are kind of cute. I finished it off with some ribbon, some fiber for sparkle and the three little bat brads. Hope you like it! :)
