I decided to make a few Halloween cards this year but I don’t have much time, so I used some cute images from our Halloween Clip Art Collection, a little ribbon, and a little washi tape to whip some up in no time. So if you need a few notes just whip out some Halloween papers, stickers, or bip on over to the Joyful Daisy Boutique and purchase our collection to print and get started…
I always have standard 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock available to print out my labels and clip art images so I also like to keep a box of A2 Envelopes around because they work perfectly when you create cards by using half of a 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper folded in half.
I just love washi tape layered on my projects. It creates a nice background to layer images on.
I also love ribbon. This simple satin ribbon adds that pop of color to compliment my trick or treaters 🙂
So why not add washi and some ribbon behind your clip art or stickers? I think this guy needs a couple googly eyes though, don’t you? I almost want to scratch and sniff this image! Maybe they will come out with fragrant sprays for crafting! 🙂
Here’s an example using layered mats, you don’t always have to have the mats equal on all sides. Use some pop dots under some of the images if you want to add a little more dimension.
If your sticker or clip art image seems to get lost just sitting on the card, frame them up with a few mats and then add a little saying and some washi tape.
Continue your creative fun on the inside with more washi tape, sentiments, and perhaps a little doodling 🙂
If you don’t have a lot of time, as is the case with many of us, don’t skip the crafting…just keep it simple and keep it fun!
