A Blue Halloween

Hello to all my crafty friends today, I hope you are having a fantastic fall day!

Today I am sharing a non-traditional Halloween, almost monochromatic, card that I am sooo happy with!

I used the Stacey Yacula fabulous designs from Purple Onion Designs:

I began my slimline card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base that fits perfectly into the size 9A envelopes.

I created the background by heat embossing the stars in white and  inking with weathered wood, stormy sky & tumbled glass for the sky.

Next, I made the fence by die cutting two silver and multiples from white scraps of thick cardstock and layered.  I then stamped the birch trees, colored with copics, and fussy cut out.  I layered them over vellum die cut grass and topped with the fence.  The tops of the birch trees I raised using pop dots.

I stamped the pumpkins and Midnight, colored with copics in blues and greys, fussy cut out and pop dotted over the fence.

To finish the card, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a stitched banner and weaved between the trees.  I added a few blue star sequins along with some nuvo white drops for dimension.

I really hope you take a chance and try a non-traditional color for your next holiday card, you just might love it!

Thank you for stopping by!
