WHAT I MADE / halloween card series (part 4)

Today’s installment is pretty low-key, but I still love the results. The kid cards are all done now (phew) and we’re in the final home stretch! These cards were made for family, my parents and my in-laws respectively.

One of my favorite "motifs" for Halloween is the HAIRY EYEBALL. It looks kinda creepy, but kinda funny. I now need eyelash trim in like every possible color. The actual eyeball is a stamp from Michaels that I colored in with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

More hairy eyeballs, now in heart form! There's some tiny crepe paper trim under there, but you can't see it.

Still experimenting with positioning my signature on the back. This experiment was called, 'Is bigger better?' The jury is still out.

I forwent the envelope flip-book style for just simple greeting cards with handmade embellishments. These were made from cupcake liners. I shredded the edges with these scissors to give them even more texture. These would be as cute (or even cuter) on a banner or as ornaments!

Love the look of layering doilies over the cupcake liners. So much pattern, so much texture.

Originally I wasn't going to mat the inside, but it just needed it. You know the feeling?

The composition for the back of the cards has mostly been about working with and/or around the signature. Each one is slightly different. Love that sort of Overlook-Hotel-carpet patterned paper so much I had to use it again on the back.
