Video tutorial - use CIRCLE LAYERING DIES to create a Halloween card

I have created a step by step video showing how I created my card using the wonderful "Fab-BOO-lous" clear stamps & papers from the "In Love with Trick or Treat" papers

Here in the UK, school summer holidays are now over and the children will be heading back to a new year at their schools. To me when this new term started it heralded the start of a new season, Autumn. If you have seen my previous posts, you'll have noticed that because of the change in the season, I've been busy making Halloween inspired projects using a range of Polkadoodles stamps & papers.

Over in the Polkadoodles shop there are oodles & oodles of wonderful Halloween themed goodies from stamps, papers, digi images, digi papers - so, so many. that you'll be spoilt for choice. You can check out all the different crafty goodness HERE and from your local Polkadoodles stockists, make sure you check out your local and online craft stores!

Todays project features one of my favourite Halloween figures, Frankie or Frankenstein to give him his full name ... from the "Fab-BOO-lous" clear stamp set ...

Frankie is one of the images found on the "Fab-BOO-lous" clear stamp set, which in turn is part of the Halloween Fun collection.

Nikky has created 3 sets of circle layering dies, all can work independently of each other but also can work together to create many different layers: some with decorative edges, some without, stitched borders or delicate picot dot borders. I've combined 2 of the sets to create my card blank & also the different mat layers.

Frankie has been stamped on to white card & coloured with alcohol markers. I've stamped his head again and given Frankie movement by adding a small piece of concertinaed card - more details can be found in video tutorial.

To make sure my bat images could be seen, I have stamped them on to Polkadoodles Fluffy Cloud die cut, with slight inking around the edges.

... and to finish the card, that wonderful sentiment. Perfect for Frankie to stand upon.

Also within the tutorial, I share my tips about creating your circular card blanks from getting them to stand to joining at the right place. Do you like circular cards? Do you have any tips about circle die cuts that you could share with us all?

The next Halloween card, is definitely a treat ...!

What images from the Little Monsters Collection and Halloween Fun Collection has been your favourite one(s) so far? I can't decide. It's very tricky to say just one ...

Until next time. Have lots of Polkadoodles Crafting fun,
