I think it's time the Halloween inspiration started! Here's my first Halloween card of the year, I'm sure it won't be the last!
I used papers from Echo Park's Arsenic & Lace collection for my card. I started off embossing the end of a 6 x 12" piece of patterned paper with Sizzix's Rachel Bright Scrolls & Lace Embossing set. I lightly inked the raised areas with black soot distress ink, and after drying, highlighted the raised areas with black Stickles. I trimmed off the paper around the bottom edge of the embossed lace. The Sizzix Tim Holtz Candlelight die and the Tim Holtz Raven die were cut out with chipboard. I applied adhesive backed metal to the candle chipboard before die-cutting. I distressed the metal slightly, then painted black, persimmon, antique linen paint, wiping off the excess after each application. The raven was painted black, then covered with Black Soot Distress Glitter.
The label was cut out from my paper using Sizzix's Ornate #2 framelit, then edged with black pen. Before adhering the label to my card, I stamped Happy Halloween (Tim Holtz Carved Halloween CMS197). I added in a black cardstock piece of the Cobwebs Decorative Strip die-cut before adhering my candle and raven. I finished off my card with orange ribbon.
