Card 25: 30 Days

I'm back - from the most magical place in the world! Disneyland ROCKS!

We decided to skip the BIG vacation that we had planned - taking the family boat and the parents 5th wheel to Lake Meade for a week - and do something close to home and low stress... hence, Anaheim - specifically, Disneyland and Angels Baseball! It was great fun, fantastic time with the hubby and baby - a lot of QT that we needed. Also, the World of Color at California Adventure is fantastic, both me and DH loved it!

Anyways - here's card 25 - I can't believe that I only have 5 more cards to do!! That's awesome! This card is a Halloween Card using Making Memories "Toil and Trouble" paper/embellishment line. I can't take credit for this card either - my Mom made it for an upcoming class, but I think it's super cute and an easy way to use scraps!

You need 3 pieces of coordinating patterned paper and a solid card base (hers is 5 x 5 in.). You cut the squares all the same size (hers are 1.5 in.) and put adhere them to the card. You then take a rectangle (she cut hers using the Silhouette for the scalloped edge but you can duplicate it with a border and corner punch), and then cut a smaller cream solid for the center. She also used the Silhouette for her fence, but I know that both EK and Martha Steward have similar fence punches. Adhere the fence to the card and then adhere "BOO" cut from QK Haunted font. Don't put your rectangle on quite yet!! Wrap a piece of organza ribbon (hers was cream but she used Tattered Angels in Mimosa and sprayed it orange) around the card, close to the top, tie a bow. Then take a piece of black solid and use a spider web border punch (EK) on it, then adhere the webbed pieced to the ribbon. Once you have both the ribbon and the web piece down, you can adhere you rectangle. Add a flower/skull embellishment (MM Toil and Trouble) to the center of the organza bow. Add black rhinestones all around your rectangle piece and on parts of the fence and here you go - a perfectly delightful and frightful Halloween Card!

See you tomorrow... Don't forgot, tomorrow is Grandparents Day!
