Well this was a FUN project! I wanted to make some cards to give to my table guests to thank them for joining me at the Hocus Pocus event and was suffering from a creative block. While browsing the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs website I came across this fairly new collection called "Halloween Stencils" and, all of a sudden, my creative block was OVER!!! Out came the papers, cutting mat and adhesive and these babies were whipped up in no time. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stencil collection. It is so danged easy to put these together that it's scary!

Seriously, these stencils are two pieces....yes, two pieces each (except for the skull -- you have to glue the eyes and nose on separately). I cut these at around 3.5" x 3.5" (scalloped mat) and then made my own little card base by cutting strips of black cardstock 8.5" x 4.25", scored the strips in half and folded for a 4.25" x 4.25" card. I then cut out 4" x 4" squares of Halloween paper and voila -- a simple card was done!
Here is the inside of my card that I typed up on my computer and printed:
Here's a closer look at the stencils:
There's another stencil in this collection - a Tombstone - but I didn't make that one. No reason other than I wanted more "witchy" stuff for my cards since that was the theme of the party.
I can't stress enough how super cute these are in real life and how EASY they are to make! Here's a link to the Halloween Stencil collection on the LSHD website:
Hope you enjoyed seeing this project! Until next time...Happy Scrapping!
