Freshly Made Sketches #197

Again working on some card boxes for gifts, the holidays will be here before we know it.  I decided to take this sketch and make it a Halloween card, I went ahead and made five of them, I normally make two at a time but because the holidays will be here soon and I give out allot of card boxes I need to start making five of each design and sketches help allot.

Head on over to Freshly Made Sketches and play along.

 I started off using this stamps set from Technique Tuesday, I used Stampin UP Smokey Slate and Pumpkin Pie ink along with Memento Black ink.

To get the perfect sized panell I lay out my stamps on my grid mat and viola you know what size to cut your mat.
 The inside of the card, I love making the inside, back and envelope coordinate and it allows you to use almost all the stamps on a stamp set, I also used a smalled star from another Halloween Technique Tuesday stamp set.

Using Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Smokey Slate ink.
This is a Stamps of Life back of the card stamp that I used Smokey Slate ink and Memento ink for the bat.

I colored the treat bag in with Stampin right markers.
Finished card, I added the mat with foam squares.

Close up, the pattern paper came from a 8 1/2 by 11 Trick or Treat stack from Hobby Lobby.
