First Halloween Card

This card measures 14cms x 14cms and is made using a hand cut and creased smooth white card blank.
This card was made for my lovely next door neighbour's new baby Kristzian. This year he won't know anything about it, but I know Iris and Bertie will be desperate to Trick or Treat Kata and pop in to see Kristzian.
I covered the front of a plain white card with an orange patterned origami paper (The Works) and then other scraps from the same book in suitably Halloween type colours for the "patches".

The wooden number 1 was coloured with a purple Sharpie pen and then covered it with a layer of Ranger Glossy Accents to help it stand out.
The stickers came from this years Flying Tiger Halloween Range (£1 per pack) and were again given the Glossy Accents treatment to give them extra dimension and texture. 

A few stars, a couple of pairs of googly eyes on the spiders, a little bit of faux stitching and clusters of three dots here and there using a black fine liner pen finish the card off nicely.
