October Is On It's Way~ Let's make some cards!

Since I haven't done anything Fall-ish around the house... yet, I dug out the ole card making supplies and came up with a couple of  Halloween themed cards.


After I cut and scored the cardstock,  I punched out a circle for the moon in orange and colored it with a yellow chalk marker.  I placed the front of the card in the embossing folder, gently closing it and moving the moon around until I decided where I liked it best and lightly glued it to the front. Some beginners might not realize... what to do with that pesky back side of the card when you are embossing?  Just fold it around the back side of the folder, and slide it on through your machine. Really.  I used to be a beginner, I should know.

Inking up the raised/embossed tree, makes the moon look like it is behind it. Magic.  My original idea, I am sure of it.


I had intended to use my spider web embossing folder, like this one...
however, it has gone missing -jumped right out of my binder.  Hence the tree!


Some close ups of my first try~





You get extra points if you noticed the piece of lint on my owl.  How on earth did that get there?






Just a tiny peak of the inside too.  I should probably add a sentiment.
