I am here today with a Halloween treat! I love to make shaped cards and the Boo to You set is adorable and perfect for this! Let me show you how!
The images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating Boo to You Elle-ments. After setting these all aside, I set to work on the shaped portion of my card. While the pumpkin image can be die cut, it also cuts out the center to create a scene. Once I cut out my main colored pumpkin image, I used that to trace the image onto white card stock. My background was ink blended with Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet, and Broken China Distress Inks and then trimmed out. Water was flicked across the panel to create the stars. The top was scored and a sentiment stamped at the bottom that will only be seen once the card is opened.
All of my images were die cut twice----the second one being just in white card stock. The images on the front were adhered with foam adhesive. I wanted to create a window card but to the make the back part of the window look "clean" (ie. where you don't see all the Copic blending), the extra die cuts were layered face up and adhered to the clear card stock that was layered between the two pumpkins.
TIP--Use the negative of the die cut to trace the image to create a full scale pumpkin image for the "back" of the card. Cut out using scissors. To create the folding portion of the card, simply score a small part of the top of the pumpkin.
