Card Gallery #279

I promise you I’m not obsessed with Halloween. (Okay, maybe just a wee bit. Don’t tell anyone.) But I had another scrap of the decorative paper from the treat box in the last entry and I hated for it to go to waste.



The second card is an interesting one (at least to me). I was inspired by book binding. I used extra strips of cardstock (the same I used for the base) to create a faux binding. It creates a natural offset for your decorative elements (in this case the glossy floral handcuts). The ribbon was a last minute addition–but the idea looks great with or without the ribbon. This is definitely a technique I want to experiment with more in the future.
