Happy Halloween Card

Happy Halloween Card - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}
For a quick, fun way to use up my Halloween fabric scraps I thought I’d add them to a card.
I’ve mentioned before that I love sending out card for different holidays, or for no reason at all even.
It’s always fun to get a card in the mail!

I had extra 2″ squares after making my Ghost Footprint Pillow. Click the link to see the full tutorial.
I couldn’t bring myself to throw them away, so I decided to make a card for my mom.

Happy Halloween Card

Supplies:

8 1/2″ x 11″ black card stock
7″ x 4 1/2″ yellow card stock
2″ fabric squares (I used Riley Blake Trick or Treat 2)
Wonder Under or HeatnBond
Ribbon scraps
(I used 3/8″ Apple Green Solid Grosgrain, 3/8″ Orange Solid Grosgrain, 3/8″ Black Stripe Grosgrain)
Iron
Paper Cutter
Paper Scissors
Glue Stick (or preferred adhesive)
Stapler
Bone Skorer

Using your bone skorer fold your black card stock in half.
Trim your yellow card stock down to 7″ x 4 1/2″.
Glue the yellow card stock to the black card stock.

Using your iron, very carefully press your fabric squares to the shiny, sticky side of the Wonder Under.
I say careful because you don’t want to get your iron all sticky.
Trust me, I’ve done it and it’s not easy to clean off!

My fabric edges were a little frayed, so I trimmed them down after ironing them.

Peel the paper off the Wonder Under.
Press the fabric squares onto your card with the iron, spacing them the way you’d like.

Staple your ribbon scraps to the side of the card.

I found some cute Halloween stickers in my sticker stash,
so I added them to the card underneath the ribbon.

I also trimmed down my ribbon so the card would fit into the envelope.
If I hadn’t been mailing the card I would have let the ribbon overlap
because I think it just adds to the cuteness.

Using the silver Sharpie marker I wrote my sentiment on the inside of the card.
The silver ink shows up great on the black cardstock.

Now you’re done with your Halloween card and you can
go ahead and make one for everyone you know!

      You’re welcoms Sherrie! It’s a fun alternative to paper and I hate for those cute scraps to go to waste. I’m so glad you liked it!
