Trick or Treat

Good morning, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the new week. We have a new challenge for you at Bearly Mine Designs and this week the theme is - Anything but a Card.

With Halloween just around the corner I decided to make a Trick or Treat Bag this week using the fab new Bearly Mine Designs - Happy Hauntings Digi Set.

I used a Kraft gift bag as my base and some Core'dinations card stock to layer my papers onto.  I cut out the Trick or Treat with my Spellbinders Inverted Scalloped Circle die and layered it onto a Standard Circle.  The cobweb has been cut from one of the Happy Hauntings papers and the Spider is from my Polka Doodles - Sundae of Seasons CD.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

Our Sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter

 and our lucky winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in their store

Card Recipe:
