Have you seen Graphic 45's An Eerie Tale collection? The papers are beautiful and versatile. They are perfect for fussy cutting and can also be used for non-Halloween projects. Needing a birthday card for a co-worker, I used these papers to create this card.
I used both sides of an 8x8 sheet of paper to make the background and panels. A Martha Stewart punch was used to make a scallop edge which I accented with Recollections rhinestones. I cut a border strip from another sheet of paper to put above the panels and added a piece of Doodlebug lace across the bottom of the panels. Flowers are Prima and accented with vintage buttons. Leaves are Recollections. Sentiment is Papertrey Ink. A double bow of twine finished it off.
As you can see, this card is not for Halloween. I was surprised how much I liked the button centers, especially the dark ones.
We had a wedding to attend yesterday, and it was beautiful. Perfect weather, wonderful food, and a wonderful time was had. It was a long day, though, and this girl is very tired today! Now, I have to go and play catch up on things I didn't get done yesterday as it's back to work tomorrow. Have a wonderful week. Thanks so much for stopping by and the kind comments you leave.
