I’m thrilled to share S4-279 Graveyard Scenes and Shapes with you... 

Here are step by step directions on how I made this card.

1.  Using the I2-1006 Floral & Stone Impressabilities™ emboss the Premium Craft Foil.

2.  Using your favorite sanding tool, sand the embossed image.  The copper will be sanded off and silver will appear.

3.  Cut/emboss the foil using the S4-290 Labels Fourteen.

4.  Cut/emboss silver scrapfoil board, using the border die template from the S4-279 Graveyard Scenes and Shapes.

5.  Using a sanding tool, sand the parts where you want silver to show.

6.  Adhere the Graveyard scene to the Labels Fourteen, using Zip Dry Adhesive.

7.  Trim excess off with scissors.

8.  Stamp sentiment onto thick textured card stock.
The sentiment is from the Halloween Party stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

9.  Add 3D Foam Squares to the back of the Labels Fourteen die cut.

10.  Assemble the card:
  1. Layer the card onto the card base.  2.  Add ribbon & bling.  3.  Adhere the Graveyard scene over the ribbon, using 3D Foam squares.



Now what would be a party with out treats?
Here are some party favors I made, using the rest of the die templates from the S4-279 Graveyard Scenes and Shapes set.








This is the Spellbinders product I introduced:



SKU/Product Name:  S4-279 Graveyard Scenes and Shapes
MSRP:  $19.99
