Good Witch or Bad Witch?

>> Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Hi Friends!
Jennifer here today with a fun, interactive Halloween card! My first instinct was to create a Spinner card to sneak peek DRS Designs *Soon-to-be-released* Good Witch Bad Witch stamp (971D).  It took me awhile to execute the perfect design, but I'm glad to say that it worked out perfectly and I'm happy I get to finally show it off with you today!   

I started by stamping, coloring, and cutting out the Boomstick Stella Witch (415H) and the Good Witch Bad Witch images. Then I used a circle Nestability die to cut out the moon from yellow cardstock. I embossed it and inked the edges with yellow-orange ink for dimension. I added the witch to the center with foam tape to make her look like she was flying in the Halloween sky. Then I put her to the side to work on the card base.

To accommodate the size of the moon, I made a 5" x 5" cardstock base from purple cardstock and I used black cardstock for the card front.  I first heat embossed the Halloween Arc (043E) in white, and then ran the entire black piece through the star embossing folder. I wasn't sure if the white embossed area would still look ok after embossing it, but gladly, it held up just fine.  The witch and moon were then adhered to the center of the card front.

I used a portion of the spinner card directions on Splitcoast Stampers to create the spinning device at the bottom of the card.  The Good Witch Bad Witch image actually spins around! Here are a few pictures demonstrating that.

  I embellished this card with some purple grosgrain ribbon to decorate the bottom and then some purple bat punchies flying around the moon.  I really like this card a lot and I hope you do to, but I'll let you decide for yourself if she's a Good Witch or a Bad Witch!

Have a great day!
