Black Cats

Hello, friends.   Today I'm sharing another Halloween card I made.  I love this sheet music because it's all about black cats on Halloween - just purrfect!

I started by covering a white card base with kraft cardstock.  I added a torn black panel and a torn sheet-music panel and attached two orange brads.  I embossed two cats in black on orange scraps, tore the edges, and affixed to the card.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment in black.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Cat face (Stampin' Up! Trick or Treat set), cat (Inkadinkado), sentiment (Kolette Hall for Studio G)
  • Ink:  Versafine watermark, Versafine Onyx Black
  • Embossing powder:  The Artful Stamper
  • Cardstock:  Stampin' Up!, Recollections, Walmart
  • Brads:  Dollarama
