Witch's Shoes

I have already made and sent Halloween cards to my contact for Send A Smile 4 Kids but wanted to share this card I made for my granddaughter for their Halloween for Kids challenge.
This is actually clip art. I put witch's shoes in search line and this was the cutest one. I added the sentiment under the image and printed it out on white cardstock. There were silver buckles on the shoes but I colored over them with purple gel star pen to add sparkle. Then, I mounted that on some green sparkly paper and added a strip of purple sparkle paper below the image. Then mounted it all on a white card base. Inside is that little poem I remember saying as a kid. I don't know if they still say that now but I thought it appropriate here. I added a strip of the purple and green sparkles papers inside too.

A little hint about sparkly papers: The green one tended to shed its sparkles all over the place. I took the sheet outside, laid it on newspapers and lightly sprayed with clear acrylic spray. Problem solved! No more shedding.

  1. Great card, and cool idea about spraying glitter paper. I've not tried that, but I definitely will next time I have a problem. Hope you're having a great weekend.
