Halloween Card

To make this card I used the wonderful Skulls 3d Texture embossing folder from Tim Holtz. I just love this one. I embossed it on black cardstock and then used sterling foundry wax on it to give it some shine on the higher parts and bring out the details of the embossing. It is terrific in real life but hard to get the shine on camera.

I used an older Halloween release Tim Holtz stamp, Tiny Texts to add the quote but you could add any sentiments you want. Preprinted stickers or chipboard would work really well here. I stamped using Versafine ink on white paper and then blended some Black Soot distress in around the edges to dull the white a bit. I then used a tiny bit of Sterling wax on part of the edges of the sentiment strips to tie them in a bit more. After I heat set the wax on the strips I assembled it all using some foam tape to pop both the embossed panel off the card base and the sentiment strips off the panel.
