Happy Halloween!

Hi Everyone, Happy Friday!

I am super excited to be here with you today to share a project for this weeks Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge – Halloween.

Halloween cards are just so much fun to make.  I just love the vibrant colors and the fact that they are so easy to add lots of texture and dimension.  For my project, I decided to 3-D the Spooky Tree.  To get this effect all you need to do is die cut the tree several times and score each tree in the middle and glue them together.  You can use as many die cuts as you like but I thought that six looked just about right for this card.

Here is the finished project:

Here is a closeup of the tree:

For this project I used the following dies:

DL193 – Horizon Coved Rectangle Mega Doily

XL10 – Coved Rectangle Classic

E164 – Burble / Cheese Cloth Texture Embossing Plate

DL162 – Spiderweb

B191 – Spooky Tree

A194 – Going Batty

A190 – Scare Me

FRM123 – Enchanted Flight
