Halloween and Autumn Cards

Hi All. Hope your week has started out well and that it gets even better for you. Thank you for your visit today.

Fussy and Fancy have the theme Autumn/Fall this time


I made this card for Vic's Aunt as her birthday is coming up soon. I used a scan of some real leaves that I did a couple of weeks ago and I printed it out then mounted it on orange card then on a piece of brown, patterned card. The leaves were JOY dies.

The next card is for A Very Vintage Halloween at Frilly and Funkie


I started out with a piece of black card that I I ran through a Cuttlebug folder to add texture. Next I found a piece of pumpkin material that my daughter had given to me so I used some of that as a layer. A piece of wide ribbon and some painted lace next. Then the layered up pictured and embellishment last of all. The picture was from a catalogue of Halloween costumes online.

I would like to enter this at Make My Monday for the' I put a spell on you' challenge and also at City Crafters  Hallo-Ween challenge. A good twist to the word I think.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

You are really getting into the Halloween spirit, Chrissie. I adore both of these. I should get busy making one or two, too, but I'm so far behind, I have no idea when I'll catch up. Again, super cards.
