Handmade Halloween Card

Will you be sending handmade Halloween cards this year?  Americans send 20 million Halloween cards each year, and your handmade cards will stand out from the rest as shown in today's Saturday Sample.  My friend June made this handmade Halloween card for a recent demonstrator swap using Out on a Limb stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog, and I love her use of a single stamped image–the spiders–as the focal point for the card.  I also think her color scheme of Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, and Very Vanilla–taken directly from the Pick Your Poison DSP, also from the Holiday Mini Catalog–is a really grown up look and rather sophisticated.

Out on a Limb spider

Your handmade card need not be complicated or a great work of art (although it can!).  I like quick and easy cards, and this spooky spider card is a great example of a card in that category that doesn't look like it would be!  The supply list for this card is below, and the items with an asterisk are Holiday Mini Catalog items.
