Inspiration post: Get Inky! Challenge 15 - Buttons on a Halloween card

Have you heard??? 
There's a new exciting challenge over at the Get Inky! Challenge blog - Buttons on a Halloween card. It's my day to offer inspiration here and on the Get Inky Stamps blog.
Pop over and leave me some love! Pretty please?!


I am crazy for chevron so I decided to make this fun Halloween card using DCWV cardstock. I love how it shines just enough. The card base is a black American Crafts tri-fold card. To create the opening, I cut a square from black DCWV chipboard and stamped with Get Inky!'s 2013 Halloween Spooktacular set (available on Etsy) in versa mark. I then heat embossed with detailed embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle. It's called vanilla ice (Vanilla ice, ice baby.... dun dun dun dundun dun!) so I had to buy it. It's semi transparent and has glitter in it. Buttons accent the sentiment. Don't ya just LOVE the font?


Opening the card reveals Halloween patterned and plain paper from my stash, and more buttons. The Get Inky! stamp is perfect for the occasion and stamped well in Memento black tuxedo ink. I left some room for a handwritten message. I'm just in love with this style of card. I hope you enjoyed it and will consider joining in on the challenge and picking up some Get Inky! Stamps soon.
