Glittering

Kristi of Sunnypond Home and I agreed to make and exchange Halloween cards. Her beautiful card arrived this weekend.

Isn’t this the cutest Halloween card?

You can’t see it in this picture but she wrote a lovely note to me in gold on the bottom of the inside of her card.

I made mine using the Harvest Moon picture and idea from Clarice at Storybook
Woods and mailed it to Kristi in a black envelope addressed using a white gel pen.

I printed the card front and back on my computer and enhanced with just a touch of glitter and glue from Martha Stewart. The back is all black and has a quote written in white from John Kendrick Bangs:

Bring forth the raisins and the nuts—
Tonight All-Hallows' Spectre struts
Along the moonlit way.

In doing this small project, I learned that I need to know more about paper crafting as Kristi and Clarice’s projects are so much more glorious. The MS glue was smearing my printed moon face so I only used a bit. In retrospect, I would have cut out the moon shape itself and altered the text placement on the back instead of leaving the card square.

June,
I love both of the cards... such creative women! Isn't blogland amazing?? There's just a wealth of ideas and inspiration out there.

I always look forward to your blog in the morning with my tea. You wake up the right side of my brain and get the ideas going.

I'm going to email you with an idea.
Halloween hugs,
Joni

Those cards look great! I have a lot to learn about making cards, I usually just go out to the store and buy them! These seem much more fun!

Oh just lovely June. The moon makes me smile. Very infectious.
Just watching tv and listening to the reason behind Halloween. I will have to duck out today and get some treats as we do get some visitors at our door. Don't know if we will dress up. I'll post some pictures for you.
