BOOtiful Haunted Halloween House Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello BOOtiful Friends! 

Today I have a super cute Haunted Halloween Card featuring the HAUNTED HOUSE ADD-ON | HONEY CUTS for the HOUSE BUILDER CARD BASE. I had so much fun putting it all together and creating this faBOOlous scene.

CARD DETAILS

To begin I started by die cutting all the pieces and elements for the house using both die cuts from the HAUNTED HOUSE ADD-ON | HONEY CUTS for the HOUSE BUILDER CARD BASE. To keep it simple I used only two colors of cardstock.

Before piecing everything and gluing it together I used an embossing folder to add texture to the house panels. I then blended out some Hickory Smoke distress oxide inks on the house panels and Black Soot onto the roof panels.

I also blended the smaller detail elements using black soot to darken the pieces and contrast to them.

Now that all my pieces were cut and colored, I then was ready to begin gluing the pieces for the House base together. Next, I figured out where I wanted the windows to be and die cut those out. Since I wanted the light to be able to shine through the inside of the card I created a template first of where the windows were so that I could cut them out in the exact same spots on the card base and the background panel.

Now I was ready to glue all the pieces onto the house.

I created frames for windows by die cutting the window panels out and then fussy cutting along the creases of the die-cuts. This was just to add some contrast to the windows.

Behind the openings of the windows, I glued pieces of vellum. I also die cut the ghosts out of vellum and added a layer of liquid pixie dust for shimmer.

Along the bottom edge of the pathway, I added the spooky iron fencing, some tombstones, pumpkins and a few skulls from the BOO-TO-YOU | CONFETTI MIX.

For the background I used a circle die to cut out the template for the moon using masking paper. I then used the new BACKGROUND BLENDER BRUSHES to blend out Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks on the areas that would peek through behind the house. I then splattered the sky with white pigment ink and removed the mask for the moon.

Next, I used the template I created earlier to die cut the windows from the background and the card base. I then glued the 3 layers together using the window openings as my guide to keep the layers all lined up. Anything that hung off the edge of the card base was then trimmed off.

I then die cut a few creepy trees and incorporated them into the scene. To give them a night sheen, I painted on some liquid pixie dust.

I then finished off the scene by adding some stars in the sky from the BOO-TO-YOU | CONFETTI MIX and some cute little bats.

For the sentiment, I used the Hello Bootiful Stamps from the FABOOLOUS SENTIMENTS to stamp directly onto the roof.

Here's what this BOOfiful scene looks like in the dark with a tea light shining through the open windows.

As you can see I used a cobweb on the inside of the attic window to cast a shadow when the light shined through it.
