Practicing Creativity

Halloween autumn card made with Sizzix Baby Dresser die

Here's my first fall card! The calendar may say it's autumn in September, but for me fall begins in October.

Sizzix baby dresser die used for Halloween card, by Paperesse.

The Sizzix Baby Dresser die makes a great side step card base for this Halloween/autumn card.

The image is a free Dearie Dolls Harvest Pumpkin digi. The sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations.

The burlap bow on this card is an upcycled one from a candy box, which leads me to a *Crafty Tip* – don't throw away the bows on your candy and gift boxes, they work great on cards – i.e. this Easter card and the same burlap bow as above on this masculine card.

  1. Oh I just love what you did here. So creative and colorful. Wonderful!

  2. Omy Shani! I love this one... using a step card like that to create two focal points with the fun freebie of the pumpkins and the great sentiment! I love that you put a twine hanger on the top of the sentiment... does it pull out of the card so they could actually hang it? Either way - it is such a creative and beautifully executed card!
