A Few More Cards

Here are a few cards I made the past couple of days.  Not sure what happened to making Christmas cards!

This first Halloween card is for the Sketch Challenge over at Graphicat.  Be sure to hop over and check out Cheri's blog, she has digi images, her very own stamps, plus other goodies and fun challenges!

Now, it looks like my card front is on the base crooked, but irl, it isn't.  I used a fiskars border punch, printed paper from my stash--including the pumpkin faces--I put them under clear bits from SU, the crackled image and sentiment is cut from Crafty Secrets paper, ribbon-not sure, embroidery floss for the Spirella corner.  The border punched cardstock has been sprayed with Glimmer Mists.  Talk about layers--starting with the black card base, then green SU cs, sprayed cs, black cs, orange print is only a frame, black cs, orange cs, black cs, and image on white!  So, if you count the card base, that's.......9 in case you're wondering, lol, and that's not including the 3 under the sentiment!  Surprisingly, the 6 x 6 card isn't that heavy   :)

Side view of the layers popped up.

A card for the kids, I had sparkles, glue, paint and gosh knows what, stuck to my fingers making this card!  I was all thumbs....it almost went into the garbage a few times  :)  but then, I just knew the kids would like it no matter what!     

This little easel card just kind of happened, it barely stands because I made the bottom a bit big.

An envelope style card, thanks to some friends for showing me this style quite some time ago.  I love making these, but they don't stand on their own.

Thanks for stopping by, please come again  :)
