Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month: Bewitching Fun

Hi all!  Laura here today.....with a card to share with you using The Rubber Cafe' Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month! So many inspiring projects this month....have you been enjoying the creative time with your kit?  All those's easy to be inspired!!

Here is my card for today:

Ok, I'm not SUPPOSED to....but I absolutely have to say that witch stamp was my very favorite from this kit!!  For this card, I embossed it in black on the orange cardstock, and then fussy cut around it.  It's such a perfect spooky silhouette!  And if you have never fussy cut before....don't be afraid to try it!  The trick is leaving a slight border around your "subject".  It frames it out, and also leaves a little room for "mistakes". 

Here is a closer look at this bewitching witch:

As for the "how to" details:

The card itself, is A2 size (4x1/4" by 5& 1/2"), and I added several layers.....first the stripe paper by shaving just 1/4" off the card measurements (4 by 5&1/4"), then a layer of the black cardstock (this one about an inch off the next set, so 3" by 4&1/4") and the green then 1/4" in from that.  I love simple layers....they can really give impact even tho they are easy to do!

The frame is a Spellbinders reminded me of bats--perfect for the sweet little witch to be added using some foam tape!  And The Rubber Cafe' Scrap Happy Glue is perfect for getting into the small spaces on this particular die cut.  The "Best Witches" sentiment fits just right, embossed in the upper corner.

The Queen & Co goosebumps and bling and a simple seam binding bow add the perfect finishing touches.

Bewitching fun brewing here at the cafe' today!  Glad you could stop by!
