Fright Night approaching...
11” x 4.25” card stock scored at 2” on one end, then scored at 3.5” on other end makes an easy asymmetrical gate fold card. I used a punched circle for a moon mask on the main image. My brayering skills are less than wonderful, so instead used my sponge daubers to color the whisper white card stock with a blend of pumpkin pie and so saffron ink for the background with the moon mask placed on the cardstock with removable adhesive (post it note circle works well, too- easy to remove and reuse).
I spritzed stamped image and the Spider Web embossed black cardstock with Frost White shimmer spray (I used the Hand Sanitizer Spray instructions from my upline, Claudia Perry, to create my mist! – thanks again for the idea!). I sponged edges in black with a stamping sponge to dirty the bright edges. Wrapped the narrow black ribbon around the tiny clip and attached to main image. Voila! One more “spooky and sparkly” card for my growing Halloween card collection!
