Halloween Fun!

Hi friends!
It's been so hot in Sacramento lately that I'm ready for some cooler weather. So bring on the fall weather, a girls gotta dream, right! anyway here's hoping for cooler weather.
Halloween anyone?

Start with a piece of orange Kraft-core card stock cut to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" then score and fold in half. Cut the black mat 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" and from the new Authentique "Enchanted line I used the "Charmed" card stock and cut a piece 3 3/4" X 5". From the diagonal stripe cut a strip 3/4" x 5 1/2". Distress all the edges with a paper distresser and in the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. 

Using your Movers and Shapers Mini Cat die, die cut a hole (cat) in the patter paper where you want your cat to show through. I find it easiest to hold the die to the paper were I want it to be and then carefully place it in the base tray. Place the cutting plate on top and run it through your Vagabond. Woo hoo! Pop dot all the element to the card. Wrap the black netting around the card over the strip and tie with a bow.

Die cut some little tickets from the Mini Ticket set and stamp with the Tim Holts set #100, they line up perfectly. Don't forget to distress the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Add the Boo with some alpha stamps with Rusty Hinge Distress ink and you're ready to put the finishing touches on your card. Sand the Halloween Token to reveal the metal, this will make it stand out. Jump ring the Token to the Memo Pin and add the Tickets. I love Halloween! Looking for some Halloween supplies?

Hope you all have a creative weekend!
