Cheery Lynn Trick or Treat

Good Morning crafty friends!  I still seem to be making mostly fall cards and I can't seem to get enough of these new Cheery Lynn Halloween dies.  They are so incredibly detailed and very unique.  

I started with a 5.5" black card base.  The design paper is 1/8 inch smaller on all sides.   I stacked three circles to back the Trick or Treat die focal point.  The largestest cirlce is a Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker Frames die and the others are from the new Circle Stitch and Cut Tool dies. I had originally planned the Witch Hat to take center stage but the sentiment seemed to work better.  Trick or Treat was cut twice and I offset the black die cut to make a shadow behind the yellow one.  I paper pieced the buckle into the witches hat which is the same light purple design paper from the smallest circle.  The yellow is actually glued in behind the hat and was colored with a shiny gold paint for some extra pizazz. 

I cut two spiderwebs from the Spider Net die out of purple card stock and adhered them to the right side of the card.  The little matching spider was cut with black and I added a piece of yellow behind for his eyes.  He was popped up with foam tape.

The flowers were made using my most used flower dies - the Gardenia Strip and Small Gardenia dies.  These flowers always come out perfectly with little work on my part.  I used a stylus tool to mold the edges of the flower petals before I stacked and glued them together.  I glued purple rhinestones to the centers.  

The purple leaves tucked in between the gardenias are from Crafty Ann which Cheery Lynn now carries and  and are called Flourish #13.
