Bewitching Magazine Monday
I know it’s a little early for Halloween cards but when I saw the BeeWitching card in the October 2009 issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts Magazine. The designer, Chelsea Comer, created a beautiful card with black ink on the CB Swirls folder using the ‘letterpress’ technique. And the Bee Witching stamp by Great Impressions is just too cute – and unfortunately no longer available. Picture a bee with a witch’s hat riding on a broom similar to this OWL.
Chelsea did a vertical card, the image mat in the upper right corner. Along the bottom she used a black strip of CS with three orange brads positioned on the right end for balance.
I have a embossing folder I fell in love with last fall but hadn’t used yet… Fall Fence by Sizzix. I inked it up using Memento Tuxedo Black and used the textured side of SU Pumpkin Pie. I used the Best Witches stamp (SU Retired)… positioning like the moon in the upper right corner. Due to the amount of detail on the cord itself, I used the fence to replace the CS strip. If I were using this to decorate a scrapbook page I might have added a pumpkin-shaped button over one of the embossed ones. I just don't use a lot of hard embellishments on things that have to be mailed. But come Halloween, it will be a treat for someone to find in their mail box.
