Boo Halloween Card

If you don't know by now, I'm a huge Halloween fan! Not the gory, bloody stuff though. Give me the elegant and vintage and I'm ready to craft away! Today I'm sharing a Boo Halloween Card featuring a bold sentiment using the Exclusive Classic Alphabet Dies.

Boo Halloween Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Classic Alphabet Dies

This card started with a panel I created using a mix of Alcohol Inks on a piece of Yupo Paper. I blended them using a bit of Alcohol Blending Solution and an Alcohol Ink Air Blower. The colors I used include: Moss, Sunshine Yellow, Mushroom, Pitch Black and Silver Alloy

Next, I pulled out some of my Halloween stamps and settled on using the cool skeleton image from the Tim Holtz Examination Stamp Set as the main image. I was afraid it would be lost on the background, so I decided to stamp it onto a piece of acetate cut to the size of the Alcohol Ink panel using Black Stazon Ink. After laying on top of the panel, I knew I had made a good decision as the design really stood out. It still felt like the background needed a little more texture or interest so I stamped a few other images from the stamp set directly onto the Yupo paper using Black Soot Archival Ink. I again laid the acetate panel back on top and knew it was good to go!

To attach the acetate to the alcohol ink background, I lined up the papers, poked a hole in each corner using a craft pick and inserted a small brad into each hole. 

I then went about creating the base for this panel. I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped the Tim Holtz Renaissance Stamp Set using Embossing Ink. I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set it. Because this design didn't cover the entire 4.25 x 5.5 inch paper, I flipped it around to stamp the other edge but only inked part of the design and stamped it. I sprinkled it again with the embossing powder and just wiped away any that overlapped the already embossed design before I heat embossed it again.

Now for the bold title! I cut the letter from Metallic Kraftstock and from thin chipboard using the Exclusive Classic Alphabet Dies. I glued the layers together and then adhered them to the card front using Smart Glue. I then finished it off with a couple of black cardstock bats die cut using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Bat Crazy Thinlits.

I hope you enjoyed learning how this Boo Halloween Card came together featuring a bold sentiment using the Exclusive Classic Alphabet Dies.
