Step 1: It’s time for a haunt – let’s create a spookily cute Halloween card with Simon Hurley create. products. To get started, stamp the cute monkey and raccoon critters and the tree from ‘Trampoline Friends’ on a piece of Stark White Cardstock. Use masking tape or a full sticky Post It Note to mask off each of the critters.
Step 2: Cut a circle from a scrap piece of cardstock and use it to mask off a ‘moon’ in your night sky. Using Distress Oxide Inks in Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot, blend a night sky. Remove the masks from your critters and color them with your favorite medium. You can also add little details like grass if you’d like.
Step 3: Using the Distress Sprayer, spritz some water into your hand and then flick the water on to your background, then soak up the excess with a clean paper towel. Use a black marker to color in the whole tree. This gives a silhouette effect and makes your scene look a little spookier – which is perfect for Halloween!
Step 4: Use the anti-static pouch on a piece of black cardstock. Then, stamp ‘DUDE’ and ‘you deserve a treat’ from ‘Dudes Too!’ in Letter It Embossing Ink. Pour on the Ranger White Embossing Powder and tap off the excess. Melt the powder with a Heat Tool. Use a pair of scissors to fussy cut the word ‘dude’ and then trim down ‘you deserve a treat’ into a strip.
Step 5: Adhere both sentiments to a piece of vellum and trim around the outside, leaving a border of vellum. This mutes the background behind the vellum and allows your sentiment to stand out against the night sky. Use Multi Medium Matte to adhere the sentiments to your card front. Attach your card front to a white A2 sized card base and you’re done!
