When I am shopping for products I want to buy things that I can get multiple uses from (don’t we all!) but this can be tricky when looking at Christmas themed goodies. I have been really enjoying making Christmas cards using the Sleigh Ride Edgelit dies, but I knew that they could be so versatile. I have great plans for these (so hoping that they will still be here in January, is it too early to be thinking of retiring products!) but I thought I would start with an event that is a little nearer – Halloween
With both scenes cut from a single piece of Basic Black card stock, I played around with placement until I was happy with the line of the trees, and considered sticking everything down and calling this one done. But I wanted the little housed to be ‘lit up’ but the orange card stock behind, and with an orange sky the effect wasn’t quite right. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla with the houses edgelit, and added the negative space to the top of the card so that the only orange is coming through the windows of the cute houses. Much better
Although there are loads of really lovely spooky Halloween items in this years Autumn / Winter catalogue, its not something that really jumps out at me so the only sentiment I have is from the A Little Something Stamp Set – I think this may be the most used set in my collection at the moment – with Trick or Treat stamped in Basic Black on Very Vanilla punched with the 1 3/8″ circle punch and a little extra Orange added with a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker
I think you could totally re-create this for Christmas, or even a winter birthday, What do you think?
