PTI August Blog Hop Challenge: Happy Halloween

Another PTI Blog Hop has rolled around and I have a Halloween card to share using a brown paper bag per blog hop rules.

I wanted a little of a masculine touch to the card so I decided to use the paper bag to create a leather look on the background.  I definitely wanted to use some of the new PTI supplies I received this week, especially Mat Stack 4 which I cut from Orange Zest and stamped the image from Tiny Treat Halloween.  I stamped the coordinating mat stack image a second time on white and added the cute little spider and sentiment.  I punched out the white circle and mounted it to a kraft circle which I distressed.  I used a tip from Dawn McVey to only  adhere the sentiment circle at the top to the mat stack so that it will slip down into the library card pocket.


I cut a library card pocket in black, stamped a spider web in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  


I hope you enjoy the blog hop,

Jessica
