Haunted House Happy Birthday Halloween Card

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.

For this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a vintage theme challenge.  Vintage is not difficult to accomplish.  Distressing and sponging paper are two ways to age your project.  I created this Halloween tag to put around a bottle of wine.  Perfect for a hostess gift.
