Baby's First Halloween

Although I have plenty of Halloween stuff already, I just had to buy this Haunted House Silhouette Cutting File. I thought it would be fun to use it with non-Halloween colors to make cards for very little trick-or-treaters.

I recently won some Di's Digi Designs via Love to Create (plus, I'll be Guest Designing with them on October 28!), so I used Di's sweet Batty Bears:

I cut out the images with deckle scissors and colored them with Copics. The hats and pumpkins were printed on different papers and pieced onto the image. I did the same with the bears' bodies, ran them through my sticker machine, and covered them with flocking (Stampendous). They are stuck onto the background with Action Wobbles.

The silhouettes were cut from Core'Dinations cardstocks, and the house-blackout layers were cut from Recollections pastels. The background of the pink card is from the Springtime sheet from Graphic 45's Secret Garden Collection. I believe the purple background paper is from Stampin' UP. The bats in the moons were cut out, but I colored them with Copics and placed them back into the silhouette.

I used Stickles to fill in the windows, and added pink or purple Liquid Pearls to the corners of the cards.

Although I cut the house-blackout layer on my Silhouette, I printed the sentiments and glued them behind the doors. The pink one says "Too Cute to Spook," and the purple one says "Happy 1st Trick or Treat." I'm sending the latter to our 10-month-old niece!
