Trim Pumpkin Heads cardstock to 5-1/2" x 12" and fold in half to make side fold card. (Note: This paper is double-sided and has the cutest rows of pumpkins on the opposite side. Therefore, you will want to make a note of this when cutting your paper to make a card. Otherwise, your pumpkins may be upside down.)
Halloween Glitter Stripe cardstock and adhere over bottom section of fence.
Add olive green tear-shaped dew drops to the pumpkins for leaves.
To make the squiggly spirals you always see on pumpkins (sorry, I don't know what they are called) I trimmed tiny slivers off of the Halloween Glitter Stripe cardstock and wrapped it around a toothpick. It is not as hard as it may sound. In fact, it was quite easy. I glued those above the tear drops, as shown in the photo.Spiderweb Glitter cardstock and adhere to the top right.
chipboard bats to the front, as shown. For dimension, use a pop dot behind the larger bat.
Once again, I added some black tear shape dew drops to the bats' bodies.Orange Glitter Crackle cardstock. Adhere to card inside, with one more purple chipboard bat upper left. This will also give you a clear space to sign your card.
So, I hope you enjoyed my Halloween card today and will give this fun paper a try. And did I convince you how much those dew drops add to your art? The Halloween papers are 20% off this month.
