Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Starburst and Halloween Punch

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa, I designed a halloween project where the layout could be used for a non-halloween card too.

Halloween Punch. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I chose Halloween colours of Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody, along with Basic White.

The background is made using the starburst technique. I’ll be doing a quick video on how to make one of these cards, so keep an eye on my Top Tips, Tricks & Techniques videos over the coming weeks.

Two pumpkins and a ghost are cut using the Halloween Punch and added to the shape.

Finally, some Black Matte Dot eyes are added to the shapes.

As you can see, you could easily swap the Halloween shapes for a sentiment, or other shape. Plus, any colours or DSP can be used for the starburst background.
