Some more Funky Halloween cards

I had a little play yesterday with some more of the papers and toppers from the Spooky Dookie paper download available here from Funky Hand.

You get lots of toppers in the download so it is great to make quick an easy cards. For the first one, I cut some of the orange spotty paper to fit my base card, I then wrapped it with stripey twine which I tied in a knot. I cut out one of the toppers and another moon from another topper and covered this in glitter before adding it with foam pads. I cut 3 bats out from one of the backing papers and added them to the moon before sticking the finished topper to the card. I added a little button and a couple of stick on pearls to finish the card.
My second card was very quick to make. I cut a piece of stripey paper and added it to the base card. I then cut out the topper and added it to the base with foam pads. I added a couple of little ghosts cut from one of the backing papers and added them to the card with foam pads, I added a bit of sparkle to them with glitter glue. As a finishing touch, I added a little bow topped with a ghost brad and a little gem.
My last card uses the letters included on the topper sheet. I cut these out with my craft knife and added them with foam pads to a circle which I had cut with my pinking circle Nestabilities. I layered up some of the patterned papers with black card, wrapping the orange dotty paper with stripey twine. I added eyes to my 'Boo' and then stuck my topper on to the base card. As a finishing touch, I added glossy accents to the letters and a little spotty button.
I have been experimenting with different backgrounds for my photos, I think this Kraft card makes the photos look a bit dull...I will try something else next time but will probably end up going back to the white!
I have a fun day planned today. This morning, I will be showing my Mum how to make a few simple Christmas cards, I am taking some card making supplies so she can have a little play and then hopefully I can convert her to crafting too!
Have a great Sunday!
