Crafty Secrets - Trick or Treat

I cannot believe it is the last day of September! Where has the year gone? I admit, I am ready for fall and cool weather, but here in southern California, fall is a tease. We will probably continue to have some hot weather for at least another month!

To get you ready for Halloween, I have a cute vintage card to share.

I love vintage Halloween images and Crafty Secrets has a boat load of them! This cute little girl is from the Vintage Halloween Image and Journal Notes Booklet

I created a 4 1/2 x 6 inch card from black cardstock. I added some digital papers that I printed from the Digital Garden set and the Vintage Halloween CD #4. I am loving digital papers. {I know, the world my be ending!} I love that I can print my favorites again and again and again! 

I created a flower cluster, using some paper flowers, leaves, and stamens. I added a ticket, which I cut from the Halloween Creative Scraps

The "treat" bingo card is another digital item from the Vintage Halloween CD #4. That CD is filled with wonderful images!

That fantastic spiderweb bow is made from ribbon and twine found at Really Reasonable Ribbon. The spiderweb satin was is part of the September Ribbon Club, but it can also be purchased HERE by the yard.

This is a lumpy card, filled with dimension! My favorite kind! 

I used the Halloween Fun stamp set to add the corners to the inside of the card. I also used the same stamp on the printed paper on the front of the card. I stamped in gray ink to give a bit of shadow effect. This stamp set is currently available as a DIGITAL download.  

To create the sentiment, I first loaded the "best wishes" word art from the Grand Greetings digital set to Adobe Illustrator. I then added the other words using the text tool. I printed the sentiment onto cream cardstock and cut it out with a die template. 

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween card! Thanks for stopping by!
