Spooky Halloween - Papercraft Star challenge #67

Halloween is creeping up on us and Papercraft Star has the perfect challenge to get your Tricks & Treats completed! 

Challenge 67 - A trick or a treat - anything haunted!!

Okay, I know I say this a TON but I had a blast making my card for this challenge! 

I used ribbon, fiber, die cuts, inking, stitching, and fussy cutting to get this look, which is why it was so fun to make! I layered the fibers and burlap ribbon, along with the die cut for a fun look. I scrunched up some burlap ribbon and stitched over it to flatten it out a bit for a more interesting look.

I used the skull image from the Spooky Halloween Nine sheet from The House Across The Bay as the main image on my card. I covered the skull in crackle accents to add more texture and then popped it up for a dimensional look. Fun right? I have to say I think this is my favorite Halloween card that I have made so far this year!

Stop by Papercraft Star and play along with us! You have until 6:00am EST on Monday to post your entries for this challenge, I hope to see you there!

O.K there's creepy, then there's spooky, but this card is down right SCARY! Perfect for Halloween. The burlap ribbon looks amazing! It almost looks like wings behind the scull. Always so inventive Regan:-)

Regan, I love how the burlap turned out with the stitching! So pretty, but it still has that rustic look that goes perfect with your Halloween card.
