I recently got Celebrate with Flourish *okie wonders if she should tell them that she only had to pay $26 for the cartridge, and then decides she will keep it a secret* and I thought I would make a few Halloween cards with it. Now why I wanted to make Halloween cards I just have no idea since I never send them out. I gave my friend Linda, aka LGuild, the Halloween cards I have made over the last two years so she could send in her box of cards for the Cards For Soldiers program.
This was the first card I made with the cartridge. I loved the layers on it. My friend Linda, aka Lguild, was over this past weekend and when she saw it she said there was too much work involved for her tastes. But....what does she know? *okie cracks up laughing knowing Linda is gonna comment on that one*. Since I couldn't do inking on the tiny letters I did add some Stickles to the green letters and then faux stitching on the orange. I used purple thread to stitch around the mat of the card. I think I do prefer the zig zag stitch over a straight stitch most of the time.
The printed paper is Little Yellow Bicycle, I don't know the line it is from and I am too lazy to go over to the other side of the room and pull some out to see *okie wonders if anyone admires her honesty*. On the yellow cardstock at the top I used the Forrest Branches Cuttlebug folder and then inked over it.
I pop dotted the cut off the card and I know you guys are totally shocked by that *okie can just see the eye rolls with that statement*.
The ribbon is some that I ordered from Ribbons and Bows Oh My!. I hope you guys did get some ribbon from there while they were running their free shipping special! I tell ya the prices are awesome even when you do have to pay for shipping.
I will be posting three more Halloween cards from Celebrate With Flourish so be sure to check back!
