Happy Catoween Card

Hello Ribbon Lovers and Happy Halloween!!

I hope you have lots of fun plans with your little ghosts and goblins today.


I’m back today with one last Halloween card to celebrate the day featuring one of my favorite plaid ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This wonderful 5/8″ Black Bold Check Plaid Ribbon is so versatile and can be used for a wide variety of occasions and projects and it’s sooo easy to work with.  It’s also available in the 3/8″ width if you prefer thinner ribbon on your projects.

This cute little Happy Catoween dies set if from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Cheery Lynn Designs Dies used:
B850 Whimsical Halloween Cat
XL4 Classic Circle Lge Stacker Set
B841 Ultimate Halloween Set (branches the cat is sitting on)

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 with Black Bold Check Plaid Ribbon.

I do adore summer themed cards and this is no exception.  Don’t these fresh and clean white daisies with the gray and yellow color palette just scream summer?

My card came together rather quickly and that is also a plus for summer crafting when time is short.  My card base is a 5-1/2″ square and I added some layers of yellow, white and gray to frame my sentiment.  I cut my sentiment twice, once in dark gray and once in a lighter gray polka dot design paper and layered them to create a shadow effect.  After layering the two pieces, I adhered the sentiment to the center of my card.  My flowers are simply three layers of the smallest daisy with the petals curved slightly up and layered together.  The center is a yellow 1omm resin flatback bead.  I created a bed of greenery under my sentiment and added the flowers on top of that.

I finished off my card with a pretty plaid bi-color bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Yellow and Gray Plaid Ribbon.  Plaid is a perfect ribbon for summer themed projects.
