Here are some super easy Halloween cards that were really fast to create. These cards have just the right amount of spooky while still remaining cute.
|Framed Jack O' Lanterns|
1. Apply Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to ColorWays Ironworks paper. Using a sponge applicator, begin at the edge of the paper and rub lightly in a circular motion to blend the ink. Always start at the edge and gradually move towards the center of the paper so that the intensity of color fades to a lighter shade. Your goal is to achieve a gradient of color.
2. Attach your inked paper to the card base and then trim away any excess overhanging paper. Adhere a die cut frame to the middle of the card using foam tape and add the puffy Jack O' Lantern trio to the center.
3. Finally, embellish the layout with a Halloween sentiment on the bottom of the frame.
(TIP: If you are new to inking, build your confidence by trying this technique on a scrap bit of paper so that you can practice the ink application method.)
