Hi scrappy friends, Halloween is right around the corner and I’m already really excited! Last year, I bought the Spellcast collection but I didn’t get around to using it that much. So I thought that it would be a great idea to use it again this year and make some spooky (but pretty chic) cards.
To start, I looked for cool spooky wreath cut files and I found some from Paige Evans in the Silhouette store. Here are the links to the cut files: wreath 1 and wreath 2. I also found this beautiful butterfly cut file and thought it would match really well together.
I chose some patterned papers from the 6×6 paper pad, two for the backgrounds, two for cutting out the wreaths, and another two for cutting out the butterflies. When I had everything cut out and my background papers adhered and stitched on a white card base, I backed the butterflies with some more patterned papers and then placed all the pieces on the cards. Then I started choosing my embellishment pieces.
I placed all the embellishments on the cards in a way I liked and topped them off with the butterflies that I decorated with a few sequins and adhered with foam squares to make them pop. I wanted them to look like they weren’t really part of the cards, but more like real butterflies just resting there.
To finish the cards, I splattered some paint/ink on them.
These cards were really easy to make once I had my cut files chosen. They came together pretty fast and I really love how they turned out. I think that the wreath cut files match the style of this spooky, yet chic collection!
I really hope you like them too, thank you so much for stopping by
