So this week we are supposed to do Halloween! Well mine is a Halloween Birthday card! I'm not a huge Halloween fan. I think the holidays get rushed, so to me, Halloween is more fall-like! I actually made this card for a friend whose birthday is on Halloween! So I wanted it to be about her! But the pumpkin keeps it seasonal!
This was such a simple card but I think it really packs a punch. Simple yet fun! The only stamping really here is the sentiment from the BYOP stamp set! The pumpkin parts were cut with the Oval Framelits and the Paisley Framelits. The edges of the pumpkin were sponged to add some depth.
The background DSP is from the Serene Scenery Pack, and the
Woodgrain Textured Embossing Folder makes the neat background for the pumpkin. The Linen Thread and Burlap Ribbon add just enough of a finishing touch.
So while not traditional Halloween per se, it works for a Halloween birthday card-makes it about her birthday and not just Halloween! Happy birthday Melissa!!!!
