Spooky Doorhanger!

I don't really send Halloween cards but I do enjoy making them (think its the goth in me!) so when I saw the By The Cute and Girly challenge for October which is:


I decided to make a doorhanger instead. Because it is my latest craze too! I've used a cardboard template, drawn round it onto some pretty thick sort of pearlescent black card (not got a clue where it came from as it found it in my A4 card box!)

I've inked it with silver ink which I've had for ages and not really used (shame on me!) and the letters have been cut with my Sizzix Round-a-Bout die set and then put through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The image is from Bugaboo and I've coloured him with Promarkers and added him to the doorhanger with foam pads. I think I'll be making more of these in the future when my boys get old enough! Mind you, Jacob can be a right stroppy little git at times!

  • Dies: Sizzix Round-a-Bout alphabet
  • Embossing: Cuttlebug
  • Image: Bugaboo, coloured with Promarkers
  • Everything else: My stash
