Today I am back with another card making share. I am really starting to get into the swing of making handmade cards, and I can’t wait until the Christmas season to share some more makes with you. The glitter will be flowing!
Today’s card used:
- A premade “craft” paper card and envelope from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) (5″ x 7″)
- I cut a piece of mixed media white paper down to 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″
- I cut two pieces of scrapbook paper. One at 1 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ the other at 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ for layering.
- First I coated the top half of the paper with Distress Oxide in Wild Honey, that was a little yellow so I went around the edges with some Carved pumpkin distress Oxide.
- I then took out my Dylusions skull stencil and Black Soot Distress Oxide and added skulls to the top half of the page.
- Next, I glued down the two pieces of scrapbook paper, first the wider piece, then the narrower piece. I used glue so I’d have a little wiggle room to ensure they were even.
- I then edged the whole paper once dry in the Distress Oxide, Black Soot.
- I then ran the Black Soot across the scrapbook paper edges a bit to darken them.
- Next, I pulled out some washi tape with skulls and placed that across the center between the pieces of scrapbook paper to add a little extra whimsy.
- I then used dimensional foam dots to place the skull as if it were sitting on the line of the scrapbook paper.
- I then glued down my Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween word chip “from regions beyond”
- I used dimensional foam dots to place the background I made onto the card after I edged the face of the craft paper card with the black soot.
- Voila! A quick Halloween card, ready for some swap mail

Thanks for following along. I hope this will inspire you to look at your scrapbook paper in a new way. Don’t be afraid to get in there and tear it up to create some great layering techniques.
