This fun Halloween card contains two great card making techniques that I think you’ll want to try. It was designed by my friend Joni Martin, but I put my own little mark on it. Mainly because you’ll recall that I do not like to cut things out. The original card had Frankenstein’s head cut out which is way too much work for me, so I grabbed the closest circle punch to make it easier. Anyway, on to the card and the techniques…

The first technique is done with three different sizes of Square Punches.  (You can do the same kind of thing with circle punches!)  The key is to punch the smaller square FIRST and then center the larger square around it and punch to create the frames. Punch out a bunch of different size squares and frames in a variety of colors and tape them to a base piece of card stock. The Basic Black piece of card stock on this card measures 4″ x 5-1/4″ – perfect for a card front.

The second technique is called inlaid embossing. Take your card stock full of squares and place it in your Chevron embossing folder. Run it through your Big Shot to emboss the squares into the base piece of card stock. Super cool! (See tips for Using Your Embossing Folders)

So grab your punches and your Big Shot and give these techniques a try.  Take a picture of your card and post it on my Facebook page so we can see what you made!
