Halloween with the Raven-For World Card Making Day!

Did you know that today is World Card Making Day and there is a special challenge over at Mixed Media Mojo? I did and I made this card to join in.

I started by cutting out my paper to roughly a 4.5x5 I used a pewter colored chalk to edge the piece. This is the first card I have ever made so bear with me. 

I cut the purple paper just a tad smaller than the card and applied the Raven stamp on the bottom section of the paper. I used the Tim Holtz edging tool around the edges. 

I then used my spooky fabric piece to cover the top. This is to go along with the Mixed Media Mojo October Challenge of using Halloween/Fall and Fabric, check it out HERE. There is a prize if you join in our special edition CARD making challenge by Sunday Oct 5 Midnight EST HERE

After applying the fabric I added the purple and black twine/ribbon piece to help separate the fabric from the Raven quote. The metal skull piece was added last. 

On the inside I kept it simple. A few die cut spider webs that were embossed with black glittery embossing powder and the Trick or Treat stamp that I applied clear embossing powder to. 

Hopefully you are joining in the Card Making Spirit and remember-have fun and get sticky! 

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments. It brightens my day! Carpe Diem!

  1. very fun card - you did a great job on your first card - now keep making more - the raven is so prevalent in Alaska - I always want to make a card for my daughter with a raven on it - she lives in alaska. Barb Housner

  2. Barb-you made it look easy to make a card. There are a lot of layers that could be added. I may try this again. I got the stamp at Hobby Lobby with a coupon.

  3. This is really cool. I love the fabric overlay and how you even incorporated the inside of the card into a cohesive design. Thanks for sharing!
