Halloween - Front and Back Card by Lynn Dionne

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!

I've got some brand-new products to show you today including some new Front and Back images! These new images are just so cute, and we will be using the cute little FB Sitting Boy (5777) and FB Sitting Dog (5780) on today's Halloween card!

So, let's getting started by stamping and coloring the boy and dog using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Flesh Colour, Lt Gray, Cool Gray #6, Dark Agate, Orange, Dark Peony, Deep Violet, Mid Brown, Olive Green, Dark Green.

Next, we can die cut these images and glue them back-to-back....and they will line up perfectly!

To set the scene we will be creating a spooky night sky and moon. Let's grab some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. But first we need to mask off the area for our moon using the Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous) Layering Moon Mask. 

This is a two-part mask which will give us the details on the moon. We will use the TH Distress Oxide Ink in Hickory Smoke.

Next, we can spatter the background with some sparkle and also some white ink!

Let's also stamp and die cut some leaves, pumpkins and a little bench for our scene using the Ai Halloween Slimline Set (5460), the Ai Peek-a-boo Set (5506) and the WC Sitting Places Set (5055).

Now, we can take the brand new Ai WC Journal Halloween Die Set to create the spooky fence opening for the card and a raven, bats, and spider web using some black cardstock. This set will give you the rectangle that will cut the exact size of the opening needed to perfectly fit your spooky fence. I will give you some more detailed instructions in the video for aligning and assembling this frame very easily!

Next, we can die cut some Lawn Fawn Hillside Borders out of that same black cardstock. At this time, we can also stamp the sentiment which simply says, "Happy Halloween".

We can do our card assembly...making sure to line up the boy and dog so that they show through to the inside of the card. Let's add our pumpkins, leaves, raven and spider web to our scene! And keep in mind that when you die cut the little pup there are slits under his paws so that he can hold a variety of objects...we will place our jack-o-lantern in his paws!

Finally let's take a white gel pen and add a few highlights here and there!!! So don't be FRIGHTENED to give this card a try!!!

Thank you so much for joining me today!  Have a fun and crafty day!!!
