Never to early for... Halloween Cards! 🕸️🎃🕸️

Hello Everyone.

Mimi Alegria here as a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.
Today, I enjoyed using the Birthday Birds Digital Stamp for this Halloween card. I was scrolling through my digital stamps to see if I had something that I could use as a skier for my “Let it Snow” card when I saw a digital
stamp for the bats. Immediately, I switched gears to make a Halloween card first.

I added the bats to the Birthday Birds. I added the letters of “HAPPY” to the signs the birds were holding. I then played around to get the word “Halloween” positioned just right in the corner of the tree. Printed it and added my web stamp to the paper. I tested out a few colors from silver to grey to black for the web.

Finally, decided on a dark gray as I didn’t want it to camouflage my “Halloween” word. This totally gives me “Charlotte’s Web” vibes. 🕸️

I did blend a purple background onto the card with orange and yellow at the top, but it didn’t photograph well. Oh well, maybe it’ll show up next time.

Colored the birds and the tree, added a withes hat to one of the birds. Then double-taped to my black card base. After adhering the image to my black card, I used some Halloween confetti to give the card some dimension: the spider and the webs in the corners.
