A Halloween Pocket Card for CCMC267

It's Thursday and we have a new Sketch Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  This week they did a really fun pocket card, take a look.


I haven't made a pocket card in quite awhile so this was a really fun challenge for me.  I did a Halloween card, of course as I'm on a kick!

The Toil & Trouble set is perfect for this challenge.  Lots of great elements to work with.  I heat embossed the large stamp on Old Olive and die cut it with the Apothecary Accents Framelit and added a bit of ribbon.   The base of my pocket card is the Pop 'n Cuts card base folded in half with a 1" piece folded over.  I added in DSP from Witches' Brew to the front before adding the rest of my elements.  First I added in the banner in Pumpkin Pie with the skeleton stamped on it.  The Halloween greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped with StazOn Black then die cut with a Bitty Banner Framelit.  The skull and bones was stamped with StazOn as well and punched out with the 1 1/4" circle then matted on a 1 3/8" Basic Black circle. 
This was such a fun card to make, I hope you will join in!  To find out more about this week's challenge and see more samples, go to Create with Connie and Mary.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Come back tomorrow for this week's Flashback Friday!

If it doesn't move...stamp it!!
