Hi my blogging friends!  Today I'm sharing a project with you that I'm linking at the following challenges:

*The Cameo Spotlight  challenge #4 Triangles
*Cameo Creations Challenge Anything Goes
*Cute Card Thursday Letters and Numbers challenge

This card was designed using the Silhouette Studio using purchased images from the Silhouette Store, and all cuts were done using my Cameo.   I used Boister Black font for "BOO" and used the offset feature for its shadow.  The base of the card is an image by Snapdragon Snippets, and is actually meant to have round ornaments in them - I just substituted the Jack-O-Lanterns images by Samantha Walker.  This card is roughly 4 x 6, and can be used a decorative element as well.

Here's a screen shot of the original 3-panel card (before I discarded the round ornaments, shown below in pink) and the Jack-O-Lanterns in my Silhouette Studio.  I put it some color just so you can see them better.

Here's a shot of the backside of the card.  Since the cardstock I used was  double sided, I didn't bother covering the stitches on the back - I think they match well with the spiders and the spider webs.

As you can see, I hung 3 double-sided Jack-o-lanterns in in each circle window with a jute twine.  I embossed the pumpkins with Swiss Dots CB folder and attached them to the black layer with foam mounts.  I also added purple Card Candis. 


I had extra cutouts from the pumpkin cuts so I used those pieces to decorate the pocket envelope.  Since there's not a lot of room to write a sentiment on the card itself, I used the card insert that came with the pocket envelope image by Sophie Gallo.  I used a smaller version of the Jack-O-Lanterns and used them as a print only image to decorate the inside card sentiment.  I again used the Boister Black font to write the sentiment in orange.

And here's the card and the sentiment insert all tuckered inside the pocket envelope.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
