Two Jacks Halloween Cards!
|Just a couple of jacks|
Handmade cards can be fun and easy to make! Many months ago, when a scrapbooking store was closing, I snagged a pack of cards and envelopes for a pretty nice price. I knew they’d be for Halloween but I didn’t have a clue what to do with them.
Not long after that, I spied the jack o’ lantern punch on sale at a craft store and had to get it. It wasn’t until a week ago when I came up with the idea for this card.
|What you need!|
Plain cards w/ matching envelopes (I used “Create-A-Card” by Doodlebug Design Inc.™)
Jack o’ lantern punch (I used ek tools™)
2 ½ inch circle punch (I used ek tools™)
Glue (I used Glossy Accents™)
|Look at that smile!|
I punched out a jack o’ lantern face in the orange paper, making sure I left space around it. I set aside the punched-out pieces because I think I can use them for a future Creep-a-Day project.
Next I took my circle punch and centered it around the cut out jack o’ lantern face and punched it out.
I repeated this until I had 24. (I used 3 sheets of paper)
|Severed pumpkin heads!!!!|
|Be careful with that glue!|
With all of my jacks cut out, I began gluing them to the cards. I put a fine squiggle of glue all around the
backside of a jack and then placed it carefully on the card so that I was slightly askew. I repeated this with the next jack.
|That's one cute card!|
I liked how this looked so I glued down the remaining jacks to their cards and set them all aside to dry.
Now I just need to address the envelopes and write a silly message wishing some special people a very Happy Halloween!
