I received two really cute Halloween card pressies in the mail from cardmaking buddies. My first card from my friend Charlene sports a wonderful broom-riding witch scene with ghosties lurking here and there. I love the scary, foggy background created using the chalkboard-sponged technique. It is such a darling witchy scene with lots of detail. I just love this spooky card...you can almost hear a wind whistling in the dark and the ghosts swish to and fro and the little witch whisks from here to there in the dark night sky! Below is a peak for you of my happy mail card, and my big thank you to Charlene for my first lovely Halloween treat!
My second card pressie was from my fun-loving, cardmaking buddy, Sandy. I remember our crafting shopping trip to Impress Stamps in Tukwila when she bought this Memory Box Halloween die that she used to make my sparkly shaker card window. I had to buy one as well, but with wedding planning taking over my schedule of late, I did not get a chance to make or send any Halloween cards this year. But, I certainly plan to try this die out next year! Sandy also used her WRMK Photo Fuse Tool to make her shaker envelope and buried it in a double-layered card front that was embossed with a spider web behind the shaker circle. The WRMK Photo Fuse Tool is the very tool she gifted me for my birthday that I love, love, love! Aren't the little Halloween colored sparkles in the shaker window cute! Below is a peak at my card pressie from friend Sandy, with my special thank you to her for such a wonderful Halloween treat!
