Our Town of Halloween!
by Leigh
 
I'm back today with a creeptastic coffin-shaped-fancy-edge card featuring Boston Terrier-in-a-Box which is now on FLASH SALE until midnight tonight pacific time in my BOOtique👻  


 I went with a Tim Burton-esque feel for this card and creeped up my cutie Boston Terrier themed jack-in-a-box digi by using a spooky colour palette.  I coloured the design on my iPad with a stylus in the drawing app called Paper 53.


I fussy cut out Boston Terrier-in-a-Box leaving a narrow white border then mounted on black stock and fussy cut again leaving a narrow black border to make the design pop against the background of the card.  I then made the coffin shaped folded card from black cardstock but fussy cut away the entire right hand side of the card's front and back to match the outline of the digi.  


Lots of die cutting, layering, clear Wink of Stella shimmer and yummy red glitter on black cardstock action going on here to create my creepy scene.


Continuing with the Tim Burton influence I completed my card with the handwritten text from The Nightmare Before Christmas - This is Halloween.  Did you see the clawesome cover of This is Halloween by Broken Peach included with my Day 1 post?  Go check it out, it's totally wicked!

Come with us and you will see
This our Town of Halloween


Here's a look at my finished card with my Halloween decor.

 I used
Impression Obsession Dies
Martha Stewart Blood Drips punch
Peeled Paint Distress Ink
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Hallween Paper Stash
White, black and red cardstocks
Red Glitter glue
clear Wink of Stella
Black Micron Pen
N0, N2 and Colourless Blender Copic markers to colour the moon I made from white cardstock
