Today's card is a Halloween card made with the new Sleigh Ride Edgelits and as you can tell by it's name... they're Christmas. But when I saw the houses, I knew I could create something Halloween-ish.
When I started my card, I knew I wanted my houses to be black silhouettes in front of a moon, with long dark shadows being casted off...
To accomplish this:
- I cut the same size cardstock of Basic Black and Basic Gray and die cut them at the same time. This makes it so much easier to line up everything.
- I placed my moon where I wanted it in relation to the houses, and found it's center point.
- From there, using the grey cut-out, I drew lines down from the bottom of the houses to the bottom of the cardstock, using the moon's center point as my starting point each time. This is what's known as 1 point perspective drawing and the moon's center is my vanishing point.
- Then I cut my lines and glued the Basic Gray pieces to the Basic Black cut out, omitting where the house shadows were.
Do you like the night sky? I created it using the new Spider Web Doilies! (Now those I needed to have!!! So much potential!). They are black and I layered it onto Basic Black cardstock, with a few random rhinestones.
For my greeting I used my little letter framelits and pieces of the Crazy About You stamp set.
Well, thanks for stopping in and happy creating as always!
