Crow Halloween Card

Today's card is number three in the series using Tim Holtz's awesome "Mini Halloween" stamp set.   All four cards feature this same stamp set and pattern papers. It was so fun to reorganize and rearrange the elements to create four unique cards.

A Couple Details:
  • The "moon" behind the crow is punched circle of the polka-dot paper, but colored with Brushed Corduroy Distress Stain.
  • I used glossy accents on the crow and adhered him with foam tape to give him a little dimension.
  • I used my 7 Gypsies border punch kit on the skeleton paper, then ran some ribbon through the holes.  The ribbon was a little bright, so I deepened the color with Distress Stain.
If you missed them, check out the first two cards in the series:
