Two'fer Trick or Treat

     This weekend, I worked a lot with die sets and die cuts and did several really cute but quick cards.  Today, I'm sharing two of them.

     For this first one, I used a die from Cheery Lynn, cut once each on black, green, and orange polka dot card stock.  I trimmed off the frame from the orange polka dot die cut and adhered it to the black pumpkin frame.  I cut the stem off the green die cut and added it to the top of the black die cut, leaving only the costumed kids in black silhouette.

     The sentiments are part of that same Cheery Lynn set and I used one cut from the green card stock and the "Boo" cut from black.  Everything is mounted onto a white card base and left very simple.

     This second card could also be called CAS but it's a bit more complex in design and embellishment.

     This time, I used the costumed kids which had been left over after I trimmed away the pumpkin shape frame of the orange polka dot die cut.  I cut brown card stock with two scalloped dies from Sizzix, inset them, and adhered the kids to the inner die cut.  I added a green "Boo" and used the black "Trick or Treat" sentiment at the very top of the card.

     I found golden polka dot washi tape and bright orange, polka dot, ribbon which I tied into a bow.

     All the die cuts on these two cards came from scrap pieces of card stock which would have otherwise ended up in the trash!  Even the bow was a bit of leftover ribbon too small to be anything other than that little bow.  :-D
