Project Description

Arnold Grummer LogoI made this piece of black paper in the middle of the summer, and have been waiting, ever so patiently, to use it to make a Halloween card. Our hot, hot summer has given way to cooler temps. The crisp nippy nights make me think of Halloween.

Here’s what I started with: the handmade paper I made using Arnold Grummer’s Papermaking Kit and the embellishments—a tulle bow, a length of black jewelry chain, a couple jump rings, a pumpkin trinket, and three mini vintage tags.


Embellishments for Halloween card

I used my Score-Pal to score the handmade paper so it would fold neatly, and creased it gently with a bone folder. I punched a small hole in the corner of each of the vintage tags and put them on a jump ring along with the jewelry chain. I punched another hole at the top of the card and used the other jump ring to secure the other end of the chain to the card.

I added the other embellishments and the word Halloween to the front of the card. I dusted the edges of the card and the lower edge of the Halloween sentiment with gold mica powder. Now I just have to wait until a little closer to Halloween to mail this off to a friend.

    Carole, you just keep topping yourself! I love the mica powder dusting on the card and the vintage tags are AWESOME!

    Thanks for the tip of using the score pal to make it easier to fold handmade paper. Great Tip!
