Halloween Card | Guest Designer - Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge

Happy Friday!

I'm so excited to be joining the lovely gals over on the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge Blog as a guest designer for some scary fun during the month of April! This challenge is relatively new (co-founded in late 2020 by Darlene and Diane) and it's a great way to get your Halloween card stash built up before October! I have always made Halloween cards and in fact, send almost as many cards for this holiday as I do for Christmas!

Each monthly challenge is "Anything Goes" but they always provide an amazing mood board to get your creativity going and here's the board for April! I took my inspiration from the top left panel and focused in on the color palette and the mix-n-match ribbon patterns!


I trimmed 1.5" off the bottom of a top-folding A2 card front and attached a punched strip of bright green card stock. I also attached a piece of black/silver starred pattern paper to the card front and layered an orange 'moon' circle die cut in the upper right corner. I added bands of decorative ribbon and a spooky fence above the green card stock. All that was left was to pop my stamped/fussy cut images into place (along with my sentiment strip) with some foam tape! I just love that bright green and ribbon together!

I hope you will join us over on the "Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge" this month! We can't wait to see your projects in the gallery! Thanks so much for stopping by and take care!
