Things That Go Bump In The Night

Hello Roadies!

I don't know about you, but halloween is one of my most FAVORITE holidays of the year! I will be shoveling candy into my mouth like there's no tomorrow.  Oh who am I kidding?  I pretty much started doing that the second they put the Halloween candy on the shelves! 

Anyway!  When I saw that Maya Road had come out with the most adorable set of fall-inspired chipboard, I couldn't wait to play.   Be sure to check out the Autumn Mini Chipboard set and you will see exactly what I mean!  Plenty of cute chipboard images to use...I need to get crackin' on the pumpkins!

So I made a spooooky Halloween card to celebrate, and I'll actually be giving this away as a birthday card.  Goodness!  Wouldn't you love to have your birthday near Halloween?  More candy please!

Do you use chipboard on your cards much?  I really love adding all that extra dimension...and don't be afraid to layer chipboard on chipboard, like I did here!  Here I used the cat from the Autumn Mini Chipboard over the window frame from the Windows Chipboard set.... all on top of the perfect accent piece, a Kraft Journaling Tag!  I also pulled out one of the new colors of Zipper Trim in Pumpkin Orange....perfect for my card and the fall season!  And you would think with all of these dimensions and layers, this would require a special envelope to mail, but it doesn't!  It's still a very thin card and can be mailed by regular post.  So don't forget to give your cards some Maya Road treatment!

Thanks for vising!
