Halloween Card

Hello friends, and welcome to Typecast Week! Our designers have created some beautiful projects that highlight how versatile and convenient the Typecast typewriter is when adding details to cards, layouts, and other paper craft projects. First up is Laura with a festive Halloween card!

 

Good morning We R Memory Keepers friends. It is Laura here today with a layered card idea for you using the Typecast Typewriter and the Frame Punch Board.

I make a lot of handmade cards for friends. I love that I can make a cute outside for my card, but I have often struggled with how to put some type of sentiment on the inside of the card. I usually add a handwritten greeting, but sometimes I want the inside of the card to be more like the inside of a traditional store bought card. I have done this before with stamps, but I don’t always have the sentiment I want. The Typecast Typewriter makes this easy.

I started by creating a four inch by six inch card base out of Pebbles Trick or Treat cardstock. Then, using the Frame Punch Board, I punched out all four corners of the paper and trimmed the inside using the frame punch board.

I created three frames to go on the front of the frame. Each one was ½ inch smaller than the one before. I used the 6 x 6 inch Trick or Treat paper pad for all the papers.

I attached them to the front of the card using a mix of foam adhesive squares and regular double sided adhesive.

To create my sentiment on the inside I used the Typecast Typewriter. I used a sheet of gridded paper from the small 6 x 6 Trick or Treat paper pad. Then, I typed out a fun Halloween quote from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It is the perfect saying for a Halloween card.

I added an adorable cupcake cardstock ephemera using foam adhesive squares. I also trimmed out a saying from the paper pad that said “Trick or Treat” and added it to the top of the innermost frame.

The sentiment for the inside I trimmed to fit and used the corner rounder from the frame punch board to round the corners like I did on the card edges and frame edges. I attached it with double sided adhesive.

The layered frames are so fun on this card. They add a lot of dimension without a lot of bulk.

And I am so pleased I finally have a way to create a special message or saying inside my cards that looks great!
