B-oo-tiful Halloween - Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge


Since I don’t have any Halloween Elizabeth Craft Designs product, this month’s Designer Challenge Halloween theme really was a challenge for me!

 Here is how I overcame the obstacles!  Ghosts are just shapes, right?

Supplies:
Elizabeth Craft Design Products: Elizabeth Craft Designs, Inc. 
A Way With Words - Amazing Beautiful (Quietfire Site)
Alphabet 1 – Caps
Stitched Fishtail Banners
Fitted Ovals
Fitted Circles
Clear Double Sided Adhesive
Other:
White, black and orange cardstock

Instructions:
1.       Form a side fold card base from an 8.5 x 11” sheet of black cardstock.

2.       Die cut Beautiful from black cardstock as well as the Alphabet 1 Caps.  Die cut the largest Fitted Oval from white cardstock and cut in half. Die cut the second largest Fishtail Banner from orange cardstock.  Cut a rectangle from white cardstock measuring the width of the card base and about 1/3 of the card face in height.

3.       Die cut two of the smallest Fitted Circles from black cardstock and then overlap the same die and die cut the circles in approximately half.  These crescents will be the laughing eyes of our ghost.

4.       Surgically remove “eau” from the Beautiful diecut with a craft knife.  Adhere “ b---tiful” on the banner and glue two “o”s from the Alphabet 1 Caps in the blank space.

5.       Adhere the large oval to the cardbase.  Trim overhanging bits.  Adhere white rectangle below it with no gap.  Position the banner across the seam and adhere.  Trim any parts of the card necessary.

6.       Add the crescent eyes as shown.

7.       Boo! 


Happy Halloween!
