{Inspire Me Friday} Open If You Dare…

Hello, PR fans!  Happy to be here with you today sharing a fun card that was a delight to make.  I had fun layering a couple fun sentiments from the BEWARE set…

You can see a few little ink splats from the DIY set there, too, along with some veneer stars colored with a black Copic.  Next is a fun embellishment I used as the focal point.  I mentioned in an earlier post that the circle images in the set are perfect for bottle cap embellishments, and that’s what I’ve made here…

The trim was made by cutting strips of the purple and black crepe paper to the same length (mine was a couple feet…I wanted enough to play around a little!), stacking them together, and folding them in half.  Next you stitch close to that fold line to hold all your layers together, and then snip away to create the fringe.  A little separating and fluffing, along with some sparkly mist, and you’re done!  I wrapped my trim around this bottle cap twice to create more fullness.  I love how the little plastic dome finishes it off so nicely!

You can see I used the little ‘Trick or Treat’ border from the set on the top portion.  The rest of the card is pretty simple and self explanatory, but if you have any questions…I’d be happy to answer!  So glad you could drop in today!  Stay tuned, as we have a little something special planned for later in the weekend here on the blog!!!
