If The Broom Fits


Hi and welcome back! Today I'm sharing a Halloween card featuring Pink and Main's Witch Brew Stamps and Dies along with the Not Too Spooky Paper Pad. I also have a quick video tutorial for you.



This card is very easy to create and you can make multiples at one time, using different patterns with each card gives enough variation you don't have to worry about two people receiving "the same card", if that's a big deal to you.


So to get started I do a little prep work. I create a template using a 4" x 5.25" piece of cardstock, use the inexpensive stuff, it's just a template. Center the coordinating die-cut on the cardstock and run through a die-cutting machine. You can skip the template, cut your pattern papers, use one of the pattern papers instead. I didn't want to take a chance on messing up my pattern paper, so I played it safe with the template.


Lay a 4.25" x 5.5" card base into a stamp positioning tool, center the template on the card base, now position the stamp, lift the stamp with the lid, and set the template to the side.


Ink blend two shades of yellow where you will be stamping the image. You can use the template and add light pencil marks so you know exactly where to lay the ink.





Stamp the image using a black ink.


Now you can cut your pattern paper to the same size as the template, lay the template on top of the pattern paper, nestle the die into the template, secure with a piece of post-it tape and run through your die-cut machine.


Add 3D mounting foam to the back of the pattern paper, center over stamped, press firmly to adhere to the card base.


Die-cut bats using black cardstock and adhere around stamped image using 3D mounting foam.

Stamp the sentiment "if the broom fits" using Versafine Onyx Black ink, add to card using 3D mounting foam. Add one tiny bat to the sentiment and any remaining bats around stamped image. Finish off with sequins.
