A Flying Witch!

Hello Rubber Cafe' Fans!  Hope you are having a great week so far.  All the cool weather is really getting me in the mood for Halloween!  
Today I want to share with you another card I made using the Creative Cafe' Kit-Best Witches!  For this card, I used the add-on stamps plus some of the cute embellishments that come with the kit.  
Here is my card.......

This card is an A2 sized card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2").  I used the purple cardstock as my base - cutting it to 4 1/4 x 11" and folding it at 5 1/2.  Then I cut a piece of the green cardstock slightly smaller than the front - 4 x 5 1/4".  I then stamped the various images from the add-on set onto the green cardstock using Versamark ink.

Next I added the striped patterned paper and a strip of the purple/bat patterned paper to the bottom of the green panel.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of white cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and cut it into a rectangle.  I added a slightly bigger rectangle of black cardstock behind the sentiment panel.

To make the "broom", I used the black/white straw that came in the kit.  I wrapped a small piece of the glittery tulle around the bottom of the straw and then wrapped some of the black seam binding to anchor it into place.  Remember, you can make your own "glue dots" with the Scrap Happy Sheer glue.  Just place a dot of glue where you want and let it dry for just a few minutes, it will remain sticky enough to act like a glue dot for this "faux broom"!!

Then I adhered my broom into place on the front of my card.  I stamped the flying witch from the Best Witches set, that came in your kit, onto white cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and fussy cut her out.  

To complete the card, I added the witch using Scrap Happy Sheer glue.  I still have half of my black/white straw left, wonder what I can make with that?  LOL  Hope you enjoyed my card today and get lots of ideas on how to create with your Best Witches Creative Cafe' Kit!
