A Spooky Wish Hello

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

My card today is from the 2018 Halloween release and a sneak peek of the Autumn 2018 release.  There are 10 new designs in the Halloween release. You will find these in the online store at a 25% off sale.
I used the Halloween Ice Cream Cone  and the Fall Phrases dies for my sample today. This die is a sneak peek of the new Autumn release coming soon. So let's get started with some details on how I created this card.

Step 1: I looked through my paper collection for a Halloween themed design. I found this paper that has the title of "spooky night" and I liked the laboratory beakers and flasks on the paper. I thought it would work well with my Halloween themed card. 
I cut both sheets of the patterned paper at 4" x 5 1/4" and then cut on an angle. The panels are joined together with some matching ribbon.
Cajun Card Base: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
Orange layer panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Patterned Paper: 4" x 5 1/4"
***After I started card assembly, I decided to add another color for my card base. I chose a cinnamon shade for the card base***
Step 2: I cut my ice cream cone in similar colors to the die packaging. The hello word is cut in the Cajun (cinnamon) cardstock. 
I used the Rectangle Set & the Pierced Rectangle dies as a backdrop for my ice cream cone. Stamped my spooky wishes sentiment on the white panel in black ink. 
The ice cream cone is secured with dimensional adhesive and the hello phrase with Ranger multi matte medium.
Step 3: To finish off my card, I scattered 3 black rhinestones. It balanced the image panel nicely.  Attached the panel to the card base with double sided tape. 

Well, that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use these new dies. And, remember they are 25% off in the online store. See you next Saturday!
