Downloading digital cut files is a quick process, and once your paper is chosen and cut, card designs can come together in no time at all! Melissa Mann is here with us today to share just how cute these October Cut File card creations can be. Let’s take a look!
Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! This is Melissa here with you today and I’m sharing a couple of quick and easy Halloween-themed cards with you today that you can create using the latest October Cut Files in time for your festivities tomorrow!
I really loved the purple “Hocus Pocus” 3″ x 4″ Halloween Journaling Tag and wanted to use that on one of my cards. I decided to cut this tag down slightly, trimming the top and bottom. My idea was to stitch it down to the patterned paper background on my card and use it as a candy pocket!
It was just the right size to slip a giant jelly candy in, and made for a fun treat on this card. I used the ghost October Cut File and first cut a sparkly purple ghost, layering a white ghost on top. I finished off my card with a Halloween Puffy Sticker phrase and some baker’s twine around the top!
For my second card, I layered some purple and orange cardstock and patterned paper from the Home Sweet Home 6 x 6 Paper Stack to create the base of my card. I again used the ghost October Cut File (it’s just too darn cute!) and layered several ghosts on the front. I backed them with glittery purple paper which I cut the “BOO” quotation bubble from, and used the negative letters from that for my card’s sentiment, which I placed on two layered October Print and Cut Labels!
It took just about 25 minutes to cut the October Cut File ghosts out using my Silhouette and create these two cards! Don’t forget that the awesome digital files that are available every month can be used on any project you are working on—including cards! Thanks for stopping by!
