Halloween in Tangerine

Today I'm taking on the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #107.  I don't make a lot of Halloween cards, but when I saw the sketch, this stamp set popped into my head.  So here we are.

The card base is Basic Black card stock.  I ran a piece of Tangerine Tango through the Big Shot with the Spider Web embossing folder.  I matted a piece of Whisper White patterned designer paper with Basic Black card stock and added it to the tangerine layer.  A piece of Basic Black Scallop Dots ribbon was added diagonally in the lower right corner.  This whole layer was added to the card front.  I stamped the four images from the Wicked Cool stamp set on Whisper White and Tangerine Tango card stocks with VersaMark ink, heat embossed them with Tangerine Tango and black embossing powders, and punched them all out with the Postage Stamp punch.  I added Dazzling Diamonds to the socks and the hat with glue.  Each image was matted with Basic Black card stock and popped up on the card front with dimensionals.  The sentiment from the same stamp set was also stamped with VersaMark, heat embossed with black embossing powder, matted with Whisper White card stock and added over the ribbon using dimensionals.  Rhinestones were added to the "o" in Halloween and two of the images.  I don't think I've ever made a Halloween card this early.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Don't forget to come back tomorrow to find out who wins the blog candy from this post.
