Hello, everyone! We are full swing into October and all the fun it brings. I’ve been happily creating Halloween themed projects for a while now, and here’s another. Today I am sharing Halloween tag card. This would be perfect to send along with a gift basket full of spooky yummy treats to someone you love.Creating this card is easy, and it looks great! "Chillingsworth Manor" is a fun collection to work with especially with using those pre-made tags on the "Apothecary Labels" patterned paper. I will give you some steps on whipping up this card.
First you will cut a 5x7 card base from the Chillingsworth Manor “Paper Pumpkin” paper. Cut two layering pieces: one with the Chillingsworth Manor “Apothecary Labels” paper trimmed to 6.50” x 4.50”, and another with the Chillingsworth Manor “Spider Web Polka Dot” paper trimmed to 6.25” x 4.25”. Ink all edges with gray or black stamping ink.
Next, cut out some tags you’d like to use for your card from the Chillingsworth Manor “Apothecary Labels” paper. Ink and bend edges slightly.
Cut several strips of vellum trimmed to .25” wide and varying from 4” – 5.50” long, and sew them onto Chillingsworth Manor “Spider Web Polka Dot” paper. I left the edges "free" as I wanted to tear/bend them a bit. Once the sewing is complete, adhere the paper to the Chillingsworth Manor “Apothecary Labels” paper and then onto the card base.
To finish the card, adhere the "Happy Halloween," skeleton, crow, and “31” stickers from the Chillingsworth Manor “Element Sticker” sheet onto the card front. Slip the wire from the tags under the "Happy Halloween" sticker and set it in place with a dab of adhesive. Adhere the corner of each tag in place with an adhesive foam square. Fold up edges of tags slightly.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hopefully my card has given you some great ideas and inspired you a bit! Happy Halloween, Echo Park Paper fans!
