With Halloween around the corner, I made this tag/card for a dear friend of mine, who always sends me cards:
and this is the backside:
I bought this TH dies a while ago, but haven't done any halloween projects in a while, thus, I decided to give them a try while I was keeping an eye on our AHG troop pumpkin patch:
I'm amazed about how long the SNAP's battery last. I really love that I can take it everywhere I go and can do my crafting projects. In short: I cut the wood grain cardstock (HeroArts) first with the circle die and then, with the owl die I cut the outline. I cut a complementary circle using the orange distress cardstock (TH) and layered the cuts:
Later, I cut the sentiments from the same wood grain cardstock, distressed with a bronze ink (HeroArts), and let them dry. Meanwhile I added some black stickles to the owl's eyes:
When the sentiments die cuts were dried, I passed them through the Xiron to add adhesive, while I distressed the orange background of the tag. I cut the edge strip of the Mischief cardstock:
In short, I used the printed card stock with Belle and the books, which coordinates perfectly with the die, and cut it out using my SNAP for the mini-album project. I used one of those left-over cuts for making this card, by cutting the printed cardstock to fit in my card. I stamped the sentiment using HeroStamps ink and I also stamped the background for the inside of the card, stamping another sentiment in top. For extra spunk, I added rhinestones from Queen & Co and popped up the Belle die cut and the stamped sentiment. Super easy...
