A "Simple" Glittered and Embossed Halloween Card

This card was born from simple beginnings. The Frankenstein wobble card was supposed to be the best card this year and this one was just going to be a quick and easy while I had the Halloween folders out kind of card. I embossed the orange card stock, and inked it up with black ink and had a nice simple quick card, for a day or two, until I decided to glitter the spider web. That looked pretty good but now the other stuff didn't. So, I traced the skeleton out and colored it with glue and then put black glitter on the skeleton. That looked pretty good, so I did the cat and crow. Then I decided, it needed some more color, so I did the 31 in green and then the bats in purple glitter.  At that point, I realized that Frankenstein was not going to be the card I sent out this year for Halloween, that this "simple" card was going to this year's best Halloween card.

Another Halloween Wobble Card

Here's another Halloween wobble card. This one is a 5x7 that follows the same basic design idea as the last one, the image is just smaller and the card is bigger. This one was a little more challenging to design though because the embossing folder is designed for an A2 size card, so the embossed image is offset to the left and the wobbling skeleton makes up the difference on the right.

Action Wobble Frankenstein Card

While Frankenstorm rages outside, I thought it would be the perfect time to get some Halloween cards posted, starting with this Frankenstein card I made. Frankstein is mounted using an action wobble, which is basically a plastic spring that pops him up from the card and allows him to wobble back and forth. The background of this card is dry embossed and then inked.
