Halloween Monster Card

Hi Everyone! Mary Pat here with you today and I have a really fun card that is  easy to make and the kids can even join in and have fun making it too.  What makes it great for kids, is that it is super easy and you don’t need a ton of supplies.  All the supplies are kid friendly! Check out my video at the end of this post for more details.

DIY Acorn Card & Box

Hi friends!  It’s Joy here, sharing a fun fall acorn box and card with you today.  What a fun way to say hello, thank you or happy fall to that special friend, co-worker or teacher!

Acorn Card and Box Supplies:

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the pieces for the 3D acorn box and card from Core’dinations Neutrals cardstock and Core Basics white.  These are the pieces that make up the box.

Step 2. Emboss the top of the acorn, the stem and the tan square piece that goes on the card using the Darice basket weave background embossing folder.  The leaf is embossed with the Darice crackle embossing folder.  After embossing, the sanding really brings out the texture.  So cool!

Step 3. Cut a piece of white cardstock for the inside of the card and stamp it with a stamp from the Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns stamp set.  I thought this sentiment I created was perfect for this card!

The embossing and sanding of the Core’dinations cardstock really makes this simple card pop without overwhelming it.

Tim Holtz Kraft Core Card

I’m trying to create more cards to keep on hand for the occasions that pop up! One of the cards that I’m always needing are the ones for the men in my life. I find that using Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock always gives a simple design a more masculine look.

Supplies:

 

I’ve used the same embossing folder for each panel but some are embossed and some are debossed!

My other top cardmaking tip is to use a general sentiment such as ‘for you’ so the card can be used for a variety of occasions such as birthdays, Father’s Day, thank you etc.
