This week’s color challenge of Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo and Early Espresso at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to make this birthday card for my father. His birthday is on Halloween so every year I make card for him. My card is based on the gate fold card. I marked 1″ on the top and on the side then cut the top at an angle for the roof. I used the Large Scallop Edgelits Die for the shingles and sponged around the edges of the card with Early Espresso to add some spooky shadowing.
To add dimension to the bat, booo, and sentiment I embossed them.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
