Halloween Brooms from Festive PostHalloween Brooms Card from Festive Post

I needed a quick Halloween card for an event, and the Halloween Brooms from Festive Post fit the bill perfectly. Festive Post is a stamp set with images for Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day that can be cut with the Postage Stamp Punch. Inspiration for this card is from a project that my friend Pam Morris made that you can see at her site here.

My card features angled maroon plaid paper from Plaid Tidings and coordinating black, mango and white card stock. I used basic stamping with black ink for the brooms and the “Witching you a Happy Halloween” sentiment. I colored the band on each broom using the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. The Rectangle Stitched Dies jazz up the edges of the orange mat and the top stamped layer. The dies give the card stock a little polish for a finished look, and three orange rhinestones top off the card. After measuring, cutting, stamping and measuring again for placement of the layers, I pulled together a fun and simple card. Then, using the Ornamental Envelope Dies, I cut a piece of the same plaid paper and lined the envelope for a bit of matching sophistication.
