The template I used to make the "box" was a free download on Waltzingmousehouse.com she has some free downloads that are wonderful (not to mention I'm in love with her stamps!! Just have to get them in moderation or my husband might have a stroke :-0 ) I printed the template and cut it out. Then I used the October 31st cartridge on my cricut and cut the tree and the pumpkin patch sign out of brown cardstock. For the black box I used the PapertreyInk.com perfect black again (Another website I have to be careful with because I want to buy EVERYTHING!)
The tree got a little messed up because I did multi cut and it was a little small but it seemed to work out just fine. I used some Black Soot Distressed Ink by Tim Holtz to age the tree and the sign. Then used a piece of orange cardstock to "light up" the words on the sign.
Now for the pumpkin, that did take a little more work. I went straight to my ginakdesigns.com GinaK pure luxury cardstock to stamp the pumpkin on using versamark and then sprinkled on black embossing powder and used my heat gun to emboss the pumkin. After that I used my copic markers to color the pumkin. BTW the stamp was a $1 stamp I picked up in a bin at Michaels. Then I cut out the pumkin and glued to front of box. The cutting out is what took so long, and I think next time I might just use a nestabilities circle to cut it out to save time. Trick or Treat!!
Thank you for looking and please leave comments!! Have a wonderful Day!
