Now, it's not like I've never made cards, I have. I do. But I'm not into them too much, even after they are made. So this weekend, I decided to start going through my scrap stash. (Now, here's where my OCD takes effect. I sorta organize my scraps. I make sure that they are cut into rectangles, and I put them together with their matching papers. Now that's just the smaller, not 12" width papers, that's another post... So these scraps are smaller, easier to put in a box to have handy for anything. Yea, I'm weird.) Well I decided to use some scrapbook.com inspiration. There's a challenge to make a card with black, white, orange, green or purple, but atleast three of those colors. Then the other one is to create a patterned paper flower. So here they are:
This one is for the color card challenge. I stuck with black, white, a bit of green and orange. Originally, this card had another flower on it. but I was doodling some spiderwebs and really wanted to use it. So I swapped out the other flower and used the web as the back layer. Which was then the inspiration for this one:
I just used different layers to make this flower. I also folded them at the corners so it would stand out a bit more...
Here's a bit of a close up. I also folded the leaves a bit. One of them kinda stuck out of the paper, but it's o.k.
Now this lil guy, I love. I did a simple doodle. (I don't do well with stamps...) and I just lifted him with a bit of cardboard. If you look at the card, there's a web in the corner, with him coming down from it.
And that my dears was my card attempt for Halloween.
TTYL TFL LOL!
