Trick Or Treat!

Here's another Halloween card that I've made for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Here's something you may find interesting... I don't actually like Halloween... I never really have because I've always found it just a bit too scary for my liking! This year, I've made the most Halloween cards ever! (check them out here and here) Plus, there's more to come...

Here are the DEEtails:

I sort of just piled things onto this card until it looked just right, starting with some Basic Black Waffle Paper. Then I added a layer of Kiwi Kiss card stock and some Urban Oasis DSP. I added some Crumb Cake "ric rac," which I cut using my Tasteful Trim die, then tied a piece of Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon. I added some Trick or Treat tickets, from today's sponsor, Raindrop Echoes, which I printed on Crumb Cake card stock. Then I sewed on some Pumpkin Pie ribbon with some bright green thread. Finally, I added some cute little bats from my Fang-tastic set, stamped on Basic Gray card stock.

This will be a fun card to send to my brothers for Halloween. :)


  1. The layout, the papers, the ribbon...I love it all! :)

  2. So fun! Love the way you layered all the elements with the tickets (love the ribbon treatments). You do "Halloween" quite well for someone who doesn't care much for it.

  3. You are queen of the cupcake challenges. Love the ribbon treatment. hugs, M

  4. Ooops, sorry! I am a Huge Halloween fan as you can tell ;)Great card though! :)

  5. The boys let me take the card to my office; I have it displayed on a mini easel stand. Everyone who walks by LOVES it!
