We're midway in our current 'Halloween' challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The DT gals from our Team A posted their inspirational cards last week, so today it's Team B' turn. Visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for complete details on the challenge and how you can join in the fun. Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards that my DT buddies have created to inspire you.
And so...here's my DT card.
This is a tent card...and wouldn't you know it, it's actually the first tent card I've done...or at least the first I've posted on my blog here. It's a wonderful cardstyle because you can give a more 3-dimensional look to your scene.
I started the background scene with a piece of orange cardstock. I glued a yellow circle diecut for the moon. I rubber-stamped the Treeline Silhouette then added a front row of Scary Fence (made with a Martha Stewart edge punch)--hmm...I don't think you can make out this fence in the pictures above.
For the foreground scene, the branch is a die-cut, but the wooden fence was made from cut strips of dark-brown cardstock glued together. The cat and crow silhouettes were cut out by hand--I googled for their shapes. The jack-o-lantern pumpkin was hand drawn.
