Hometown Halloween Greetings Card

The Hometown Greetings Edgelits were designed for creating wintery scenes for holiday cards, but they versatile enough to use for many other occasions!  I love how they are used here to create a spooky Halloween night card!  I've also seen those adorable rows of houses on "welcome to the neighborhood" cards, "going to the chapel" cards, and in front of pretty autumn trees!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Slide the 1-1/4" circle punch into the edge of the Gold Glimmer Paper and punch.  Slide it in again in the same spot and crop out a moon.
  2. Using the Popcorn Box Framelits, die-cut a row of five stars from Gold Glimmer Paper.
  3. Using the Hometown Greetings Edgelits, run a 4” x 2-1/4” piece of Black card stock through the Big Shot.  Adhere to the bottom of the 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” Pumpkin Pie layer.  Trim to fit.
  4. Stamp the Spooky Cat greeting in Black onto the Pumpkin Pie layer. 
  5. Add moon & stars with Multipurpose Glue, then mount the layer to the 3-5/8” x 4-7/8” Whisper White mat.
  6. Wrap a strip of Fresh Fig 1/8” Sheer Ribbon around this layer and adhere ends to the back.  Tie a bow with same ribbon and add it to the front with a Mini Glue Dot.
  7. Adhere decorated layer to the card base with Dimensionals.

  1. Love the owl project and the card is FABULOUS!!! I’ll bet it looks even better in person, too. Using glimmer paper for moon/stars is genius!
