Trick or Treat Card - Sizzix Alterations

Hello friends! Don't you think this is the cutest die cut ever. I love these little Trick or Treaters, they bring me back to years gone by. 

To create the background I inked the raised areas of the Rosette Texture Fade and debased the inked area into orange Cardstock. 

Die cut the Trick or Treat Thinlits die children from black cardstock. Die cut the Trick or Treat words from green, purple and orange cardstock. Cut background into a square and stitch around the outside with black thread as desired. Cut a mat from Burlap Textured Surfaces. 

Use the purple die cut for the base and cut the word or from orange and the word Trick from purple. Adhere the words on to the green base. Adhere to card with foam tape. 

Who wouldn't love to get this card in the mail for Halloween!

This card has a different spin on the same Textured Fade and dies. I embossed the Rosette background from Watercolor cardstock and painted a coat of Distress Collage Medium over the top. once dry color the area with Distress Crayons and smudge out with your fingers. once dry take a damp cloth add rub off the area that is raised. 

I created a drop shadow by die cutting the Trick or Treat form Orange and black cardstock. Cut the or off the orange and adhere the pieces together and just shift the orange piece up and to the left a little. 

Add the children and a few bats using faom tape to create dimension. 

I think this die would be so cute on a treat bag or a Mixed Media project. 
What will you use it for?

Thanks for stopping in.


  1. i love how that texture fade looks debossed. 🖤🖤🖤 vicki

  2. They really are a delightful little group of children and they remind me of times gone by too! It is amazing how different the same texture fade can look with a change in colour. Both cards are beautiful! Anne x

  3. I have just sat down, to follow your tutorial, this evening! The Vagabond is dusted off and I'm ready! (LOVE these!)

  4. I love this place. I had an event here back in May last year and I felt like it was a perfect day for us! The LA event venues provides you with an event Specialist as part of your package which is extremely helpful. Plus all of us dressed up only added to the entire ambience.
