My name is Mikki Winebrenner and today I have a spooky card for you using paper scrapes and a few dies!
I’m not to big into Halloween but my daughter starts preparing for the holiday around July 5th! I would much rather be setting up my Christmas Tree. It’s a clash of the holidays around here 🎄🎃.
For my spooky loving daughter, I decided to try and create a simple Halloween card to send to her at college.
What better way to experiment then to use scrap pieces of paper! We all are guilty if having all kinds of pieces laying around. While searching on Pinterest (Yup, I’m a Pinterest junkie 😃), I came across some really super fun Mummy Cards and it all just clicked!
Before I go into detail on how I made this mummified card, let me give you a run down of the paper sizes and some of the products I used. I have a full printable PDF available for printing at a later date as well as a full product list below.
Cutting & Scoring:
Basic Black 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock : 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and 4” x 4”.
Basic White 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock: 4-1/8” x 5-3/8”. Additionally you will need several scrap pieces for the body of the card.
Parakeet Party 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock – 5” x 5”.
Other products used include: Blending Brush, Crumb Cake and Parakeet Party Classic Stamp Pads, Multipurpose Glue, Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and Layering Circle Dies.
For this card I took about 15 scrap pieces of Basic White Cardstock and ran them through my Stampin Cut and Emboss Machine with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. My strips where around 5” long and varied between 1” – 2” wide.
Next I cut circles, using the layering circles dies, from the Parakeet Party Cardstock and the Basic Black cardstock. I also ended up cutting out a larger circle from Basic White. I only cut 1 of each color! After they where glued together I cut it half to make 2 eyes.
Now that everything is cut and and embossed, using my blending brush, I lightly, and not so lightly in spots, highlighted the embossing on the basic white. This gives the spooky old look! I also added some crumb cake with my blending brush to the area where my eyes would be placed.
Now comes the fun part. Start tearing the paper into strips and sections to layer onto the card front! For a little extra spook, I went back over my pieces that are torn with the blending brush to add color to the torn edges.
Attach the eyes and the paper strips to the card to make it look mummified! I added my sentiment and we have a Spooky Mummy to say to BOO to the recipient (In this guys case, he is destined for college!)
Below I have a more detailed PDF file for you to download at any time!
