Sketch Inspired Doodlebug Halloween Card

Hello! Belated Happy World Cardmaking Day! I hope you had fun during this special day. I am so glad that despite me working that night, the night before, and the night after, I can still participate in some of challenges.

I am using Doodlebug Design products, particularly the Boos & Brews collection for this card. I love Doodlebug for their playful icons and lively colors.

I have plenty of patterned paper scraps of this collection from a past Halloween classroom giveaway. I blended Tim Holtz Distress Seedless Preserve ink on the edges of the paper. I adhered these scraps on a typing paper cut at 4" x 5 1/4". I die cut a circle on the center to re-create the circular wreath on the sketch. I also trimmed a black cardstock using the same measurements. I die cut the circle on this paper as well. 

For the wreath, I punched spider webs on a black cardstock creating a long strip of punched edge of spider webs. I trimmed off a part of the straight edge so I can easily curve the punched spider webs to create the wreath. I added black Zig Wink of Stella to the spiderweb for some shimmer. I used the circle window as a guide to create the wreath. Once I am happy with the arrangement, I used a Glad Press N' Seal to pick up this wreath arrangement. I added small dots of glue to the edge of the spiderweb, then positioned this to the circular window. I carefully lifted off the Glad Press N' Seal.

I spritz and sprayed Prima Color Bloom Precious Stone Spray Mist to the orange patterned paper panel. I set this aside to dry. I adhered this panel to the black cardstock panel, making sure the circles are lined up. The spiderweb is in between the patterned paper and the cardstock. 

I also have multiples of Halloween patterned papers as a left over when I created the classroom giveaways. I am using a cut apart patterned paper from the same collection for the focal point. I am using two of the same cut apart design. I adhered one of it to the back of the window. Since one of the spiders and the sentiment got covered by the spiderweb wreath, I fussy cut this spider and the sentiment using the duplicate cut apart. I ran a black marker on the sides of these fussy cut images to hide the white core of the paper. I adhered the spider with a dimensional tape but before I did that, I added a white floss for the string that holds this spider just like on the patterned paper. 

For the sentiment, I pounced Versamark ink on the letters then poured Wow! Glow In The Dark embossing powder to it. I did this twice before adhering it to the panel, slightly offsetting it from the original printout.

I added another sentiment to the bottom from the same cut apart paper to re-create the banner sentiment on the bottom of the sketch. I also added enamel eyes to the spiders using the Doodlebug Shape Sprinkles Eye See You.

I adhered this panel to another patterned paper from the collection using foam adhesive. I adhered this to a top folding note card.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
