Paper Pros Challenge - Monochromatic Cards
August 08, 2017
It's time for our monthly no-stress, for-fun challenge with the Paper Pros group. This month's theme was set by Raquel Mason as Monochromatic.
I decided to create a Halloween Card using my two new die sets - Halloween Elements and Halloween Scene.
I started with a 4.25" x 11" strip of black cardstock and scored it at 2.75" and 5.5" from the top. I added a decorator panel of cardstock, colored with distress inks, and then cut the creepy hands die from the Halloween Elements set into the center of the panel. This die is perfect for easel stops because the bottom edge is not cut by the die, leaving the option to hinge, cut or extend the arms.
For the labels I used the Katherine Label Pop-up, cutting the smaller of the two over the upper fold and then creating a black frame by nesting the two labels together. I backed the frame with a large label cut from vellum. The spiderwebs are glued to the back of the vellum.
For the front of the card, I added black bats to the area above the fold. The bat on the label and the spider were highlighted with black Nuvo drops.
To open the card, the top is folded and placed behind the creepy hands, creating an easel card for display. I added some spiderwebs and the word "Boo!" to the inside of the card.
