Halloween Boo Card
Created by Sophia Vida
I found the Martha Stewart Haunted Fence Punch Set and the Pumpkin Punch on sale and couldn’t pass them up. I loved the details on the fence punch with the crows, spider webs and pumpkins. Plus, the pumpkin punch is really cool because not only does it punch your image but it embosses at the same time!
For this Card you will need:
– Great Impressions Ghost Stamp E622
– Any “Boo” Stamp or Letters
– Martha Stewart Haunted Fence Punch Set
– Martha Stewart Jack-O-Lantern Medium Double Embossed Punch
– Cardstock: Orange, Black, White
– The Stencil Collection Chalks – Dark Brown (These chalks are great! Unfortunately I just found out the company closed. If you find a set online, definitely get it. I love these chalks because they become permanent after applied and don’t require additional fixatives.) Another alternative would be to use Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink.
– Souffle Jelly Roll Pen in White
– Stardust Stickles
– Small amount of raffia ribbon
– Color Box Black Pigment Ink
– Ranger Clear Embossing Powder
– Heat Embossing Gun
– Round Watercolor Brush
– Watercolor pencils: Rose, Gray
– Foam Squares 1/16″ and 1/8″
– Glue Dot
– Glue Stick
- Cut a 6″ x 12″ piece of orange cardstock and fold in half. This will be the base of your card.
- Cut a 6″ x 6″ piece of black cardstock. Using your Martha Haunted Fence punch set, punch the corners of the 6″ x 6″ black cardstock. After you punched all 4 corners, punch the sides as shown on the instructions.
- Using the pumpkin emboss & punch, punch 2 pumpkins from the leftover orange cardstock. Set aside.
- Stamp the ghost image onto white cardstock with the Colorbox Black Pigment ink. Sprinkle with the clear embossing powder and remove excess. Use the heat gun to set. Trim your stamped image to size.
- Using the gray watercolor pencil, lightly shade the top of the heads and hands for each ghost. Using the rose watercolor pencil, lightly shade the cheeks for each ghost. Use a round watercolor brush dipped in water to blend the colors.
- Stamp the Boo image onto white cardstock with the Colorbox Black Pigment ink. Sprinkle with the clear embossing powder and remove excess. Use the heat gun to set. Trim your stamped image to size.
- Use the dark brown Stencil Collection Chalk or Ranger Tea Dye Ink to distress the edges of the card. Glue your black cardstock with the haunted fence border onto your orange card base.
- Adhere the Ghost Image to the bottom center of the black cardstock using the 1/16″ foam squares. Adhere the Boo Image at a slight angle above the ghost image with the 1/8″ foam squares.
- Draw a cloud around the Boo image. Draw a few white circles from the ghost image leading to the Boo image.
- Using the glue stick, adhere the embossed pumpkins to the right and left of the Boo image.
- Cut a small bundle of raffia ribbon and tie in a knot. Use a glue dot to adhere to the top left corner of the black cardstock just under the fence.
- Highlight the orange pumpkin eyes with the Star Dust Stickles. Also highlight the eyes and smiles of the corner punched pumpkins on the black cardstock with the Stickles. Let dry. Voila! You have an adorable Halloween Card!!!
