The Kraft Journal #191 - Buttons & Bows {Halloween Style}

Good Monday Morning!

I made a Halloween card for this weeks "Buttons and Bows" challenge at The Kraft Journal.  I began my card with a base made from Buff Ivory Cardstock.  I then took Halloween patterned paper (I've had in my stash forever) and joined them together and distressed the edges. 

I trimmed the panel of patterned paper smaller than the base and added to the card front.  Next I took a length of Vintage Winter White Hand Stained Bias Tape and wrapped it around the card and created a fussy bow embellished with a orange button laced with Orange Baker's Twine

I stamped the Boo sentiment from My Creative Time Fright Night Stamp Set to a vintage Halloween label and added to the center of the card. I then printed out some vintage Halloween images using Buff Ivory Cardstock. After trimming out the image I wanted, I placed it at an angle in the center of the label.   Finally I added three buttons to the right corner laced with Orange Baker's Twine for a final finishing touch.
