Happy Haunting from Laurie on this 2nd day of the month long 31 Days of Halloween celebration on the Lost Coast Portal. It's my favorite time of year, and I love working with my Halloween and fall stamps from Lost Coast and Carmen's Veranda.
For this card, I used the Grunge Tree background stamp and the Dancing Skeletons stamp, both from Lost Coast Designs. I started with a piece of the new Tim Holtz Halloween paper pad and using black embossing powder, embossed my background stamp on the paper. I trimmed around the edges, leaving a border of the paper around the outside of the embossed image.
Next I stamped my dancing skeletons onto white card stock then fussy cut them out. Be patient - it's worth the effort! I adhered just the heads and torsos with glue to my background, leaving the arms and legs to kind of stick out so they appear to be moving on the page.
I typed the words "Danse Macabre", (meaning "dance of death") onto a piece of white paper and printed it out, outlined it with black ink and attached to my card front as shown.
Final step was to layer the card front with a white card base.
So go grab your Halloween craft supplies and stamps and show us what hauntingly fun goodies you can create!
