Vintage Halloween


It's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and this fortnight the theme is Pins and Lace.  I have made a Halloween card.


The papers are from Echo Park and the bats and pumpkins are Clearly Besotted stamps and dies to which I have added a coat of 3D Crystal Laquer.  The stars are X-cut die cuts and I have coated some of them in glitter glue.  Some lace and a pin from my stash along with a seam binding bow complete my card.

You can see some of the texture and dimension in this photograph:


Our sponsor this time is:


Prize: 3 digital images

I really like the layout of this card. I don't "do" Halloween, but I'm thinking the stars could be easily adapted for a great masculine birthday card.
