Happy Haunting with Plaid Tidings
Is it too early for a Halloween card? Maybe! But, I am so excited that fall is right around the corner and that Halloween is just a few weeks away. I am really looking forward to sweater weather and cooler mornings with warm autumn evenings.
I have to admit though, I had to wrap my head around this card. Bats and fall colors. Thankfully I have the Plaid Tidings printed paper stack to help me out. Let me tell you about my card.

I use the stamps with our Stamparatus® Foam Mat (#150081) to get an even pressure and ink coverage with detailed or background stamps, every time.
My Card Layout
I started with a piece of early espresso cardstock cut in the hamburger fold, measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored down the middle at 4.25″.
I cut another 1″ off the front to create a kind of fun fold effect for my card. I then, on the inside adhered a piece of whisper white cardstock measuring 4″ x 5″. I made sure it was all the way over to the left when I adhered it down. I then cut two strips of plaid patterned paper; one measuring 1.5″ x 5.5″ (for the inside right) and the other measuring 1″ by 5.5″ (for the front of the card).
Last, I decorated the focal point of the card!
I took my sponge dauber to a square vellum doily and colored it with rich razzleberry ink and let dry.
Sweet Square Vellum Doilies add poise and elegance to your handmade cards and other paper crafts. Use doilies whole or cut into smaller designs to create a variety of looks with these classic accents. You receive 24 in a pack for $5.00. (item #152484)
Next, I stamped and fussy cut out three black bats. I also stamped my sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and die cut it out with a stitched rectangle die. I also die cut a scallop square to mount everything to.
I arranged everything how I liked it and ta-da. It was completed. This card is going to be perfect for my little. Not too spooky!
