Twick or Tweet

Tonight is Beggar's Night for us (Trick or Treat) and I can't wait to see all the little kids dressed up for Halloween!  They always have the cutest costumes!  I'm loaded up on candy…we ran out last year and I felt bad, but I had six bags and thought that would be plenty!

This is the Halloween card I mailed out this year.  I think I made about 16 of them.  I love the little chick in the set (of course, I love ALL the images in this Twick or Tweet set).  Stampin' Up! really did a great job designing it!

I started with a base of Confetti White cardstock and placed a layer of Basic Black on top.  I ran the Pumpkin Pie layer thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate for some subtle background texture.  I wrapped the 5/8" Black Grosgrain Ribbon around to the back and adhered, then placed the smaller Black Gingham Ribbon over top of it.  The label for the greeting is cut from the Matchbox XL die on Confetti White and stamped with Basic Black with Goblin Greetings from the Grateful Greetings set in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I sponged around the edges with Basic Black.

The chick from Twick or Tweet was stamped on Whisper White with Basic Black ink and colored with Stampin' Write markers in So Saffron, Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie.  I punched it with the 1 1/4 circle, the a 1 3/8 circle of Pumpkin Pie and Scallop Circle of Summer Sun.

That's it!  My colorful Halloween card for this year!
